Former FBI Director James Comey refused to answer key questions regarding the presidential memos he leaked to the press this week; flat-out rejecting one reporter’s blunt assessment over whether he “spilled” confidential material.
Comey was speaking with reporters Monday afternoon at the US Capitol when he was asked to comment on his decision to share potentially classified documents with the media after his firing by President Trump.
“My understanding is that when you shared your memos with your legal team, that there was a follow-up for a classified containment operation by the bureau. Was there a spill of classified information when you shared those memos?” asked on reporter.
“I’m not going to talk about something like that,” Comey fired-back. “I’m not going to talk about it one way or another.”
