President Trump tweeted that he felt vindicated and made certain to emphasize that Comey admitted to have leaked details of confidential conversations with him to the press.
Trump's tweet read: "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication ... and WOW, Comey is a leaker!"
Yesterday, Trump's personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz read a statement to the media, which would have served Trump better had it just released the written statement to the press rather than reading it. The statement went directly after Comey's stunning testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Trump, in a joint news conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis in the Rose Garden, did not discuss Comey's allegations, which for Trump, could have literally caused his head to explode trying to hold back his response.
Comey revealed that he had a friend, Columbia University Law Professor Dan Richman, leak his private memos to the media with the intention of this prompting an "appointment of a special counsel."
Apparently, even unclassified material that belong to the FBI are not to be leaked to the public and there are penalties for doing that. Comey might be in some sort of trouble, but I doubt anything will come of it. Look at what didn't happen to Hillary Clinton.
