GOWDY TO COMEY: Your Definition of a 'LEAK' is Actually a 'FELONY'

'It's still unclassified. It's in my book. In January, the Department of Justice delivered 9,000 of those texts to Congress. "Nobody has done what I've been able to do, and I've done it despite the fact that I have a phony cloud over my head that doesn't exist", Trump said while praising himself. Former F.B.I. director James Comey's book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", has dominated headlines for more than a week, and became an instant blockbuster, selling more than 600,000 copies in all formats during its first week on sale. Mr. Trump's firing of Mr. Comey last May ultimately led to the appointment of Mr. Mueller.

Since Comey's book came out last week, information had surfaced contradicting Trump's apparent comments to the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, including flight records obtained by Politico, congressional testimony by Trump's bodyguard, photographs and social media posts, Politico reported Monday. Bravo Comey! I hope this nation can survive Trump.

But, today, President Trump took to Twitter to launch new allegations against Comey, reiterating his assertion that the man he fired leaked classified information. I know a lot of people may not think that that is important, however as somebody who has a degree in political science, and somebody who studied political science research methods in college, I can tell you that according to what political scientists are actually taught, you're never supposed to put trust in a poll that has a margin of error greater than three.

The dossier included some salacious details that of activies Trump allegedly engaged in on that trip, a claim Trump has denied.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Justice Department's inspector general launched a review as to whether Comey violated rules by revealing classified information.




The interview was called "unhinged", "rambling" and "disastrous" on social media.

During a private dinner between Trump and Comey, the president said he "had spoken to people who had been on...the trip with him and they had reminded him that he didn't stay overnight in Russian Federation for that", Comey writes in the book. "He represented me and from what I see he did absolutely nothing wrong". "I stayed there a very short period of time but of course I stayed". It was also during that time that members of the Obama administration were unmasking members of the Trump campaign in electronic and telephonic communications.

"It tends to reflect consciousness of guilt as we would say in law enforcement", Comey said.

Strzok was removed from Mueller's team after he and Page, who had already left Mueller's team, were suspected of exchanging those anti-Trump text messages.
