Former FBI Director James Comey insists he did not leak classified information, however, there seems to be a different story coming to light.
American Journal Review | Rep. Jim Jordan said recently that Comey used his friend from Columbia Law School, Daniel Richman, to leak information to the media. Jordan feels Comey has leaked the information on countless occasions and through a special government employee with access to the FBI.
Giving out classified information is a serious crime and requires scrutiny in this case and if found guilty, punishment by the law.
Comey is skating on thin ice and really needs to be careful with some of the rhetoric and information he is sharing on his book and liberal tv show parade he has been on for several weeks.

Jim Jordan just went after James Comey in the worst way possible. Look, what Comey did was unthinkable on so many levels that there is literally no chance he will not end up doing time in the slammer.
Do you think the Democrats will protect him? Not a chance.
The GOP? No way.
The guy’s a liar and a leaker and if Jim Jordan is correct, Comey’s days are numbered.
“James Comey never told Congress that he wasn’t just leaking this information through a friend to The New York Times. This friend was a special government employee [who] had access to the FBI. We presume he had full clearance, so he didn’t disclose that. The only way we learned about Daniel Richman having this special government employee status at the FBI is when we deposed Jim Rybicki, James Comey’s chief of staff, in December,” said Jordan. “That’s where the staff on the Oversight Committee learned that he, in fact, had this special status at the FBI and was, in fact, an employee.”
“The American people are so fed up with these two standards, one standard for us regular folk and different standards if your name is Clinton, Comey, Loretta Lynch, [Lois] Lerner, this is what should concern Mr. Comey. He has been fired. [former Deputy FBI Director] Andrew McCabe has been fired for lying four times, three times under oath. Jim Baker, former chief counsel has been demoted and reassigned at the FBI. Peter Strzok, deputy head of counter intelligence. Lisa page, FBI counsel, demoted and reassigned. These are the top people at the FBI. That’s what he should be concerned about.”
“A leak is when you take information and give it to the press.”
Leaking classified information is a crime punishable by jail. With no friends left in D.C. to protect him, Comey seems doomed to his fate.
