On Thursday the Department of Justice released copies of personal memos written by then-FBI Director James Comey during President Donald Trump's first months in office to Congress.

It was reported on Friday that two out of the seven memos Comey leaked to his friend had classified information, something DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating.

"It was my great honor to fire James Comey!".

Comey and Trump discussed the infamous "pee tape" dossier, he wrote in a memo dated February 8, 2017.

James Comey arrives to speak about his book "A Higher Loyalty" in NY on Wednesday.

In fact, the Russian Federation investigation had begun in July of that year and was ongoing, and continues today nearly two years later under the auspices Mueller's special counsel office. Trump is described as raising the subject of McCabe several times in his meetings with Comey.

McCabe has said he told Comey that he had authorized Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to share information with a Wall Street Journal reporter to push back against a story he felt would be unfair and inaccurate. "Will the Witch Hunt continue?"

Biro added that he wonders if Comey is damaging his own reputation in order to sell books or if it's a "part of this insane deep state conspiracy theory stuff".

Appearing on "Outnumbered Overtime" on Friday, Gingrich went through the controversies plaguing the White House nowadays, arguing that things have gotten out of hand related to the FBI and its recent high profile investigations. Comey went on to say there's a need for accountability, even for good people who happen to do the wrong thing.

Democrat Minority leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted that the memos are evidence of Trump's attempts to "circumvent the law and undermine law enforcement".

Toobin then blasted the former FBI Director for leaking his memos to his friend, who ended up sharing some of its contents with the press.

Comey wrote that he responded that McCabe had no issue with Trump. Moscow has denied meddling. He also said that he had told the president that he was not under investigation himself.

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele about Trump's ties to Russian Federation and included an allegation that involved prostitutes urinating on one another in a hotel room while Trump watched.

"It's too bad the OSC didn't have Comey's book and his memos before he was sacked, because he has made the case - better than anyone else - that he was playing politics at the FBI", Clevenger told the Times.

Speaking to Stephen Colbert, Comey said, "He's tweeted at me probably 50 times. It was nearly an out-of-body experience for me".

Far from being cowed or embarrassed, Mr Trump's advisers have let it be known that they believe Mr Trump has "weathered the storm" stirred by the Comey publications - which has again brought Mr Trump's brand of plucky pugilism to the fore.

"We've actually become numb to it in the United States". "It's possible, but I don't know".

He wanted the FBI to launch an investigation into disproving the Steele Dossier. Before Trump and Comey met alone, USA intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and his advisers about the Russian election meddling.
