American politics have long been a bode of interest and discussion, but, there hasn’t quite been a situation like Donald Trump and James Comey (pretty much ever). Comey, took to the stand in a hotly-watched Senate Intelligence hearing Thursday.
In that hearing, Comey made some pretty damning allegations and admissions of his own. Interestingly, Comey, admitted that for “various reasons” he had orchestrated the leak of one of his memos to the press. A memo that would later trigger a special counsel being appointed to investigate the meddling allegations currently plaguing the U.S ‘s relationship with Russia.
Comey, confirmed that he had ans has all of this time held the belief that the Russians indeed meddled in the election. But, shyed away from stating whether or not there had been an active investigation into Donald Trump while he was director of the FBI.
“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of a memo with the reporter,” he said. “I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
That friend he speaks of, perhaps, has been identified as Columbia Professor Daniel Richman. Richman, provided the memo to The New York Times which later went on to open up a world of questions.
