"I believe the James Comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible," Trump tweeted in the early morning. "Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'"
Comey made the allegations at a Senate hearing Thursday, and said in his sworn testimony that he asked a "friend" identified as a Columbia University law professor to leak a memo of his conversations to the press for the purpose of that creating a need for an independent investigation.
Comey got his wish.
He also called President Trump a liar claiming Trump urged him to abandon the investigation into the former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his Russian dealings. Trump denied this allegation.
On Friday, Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski criticized Comey as not being "man enough" for having leaked the memo via his friend rather than doing it himself.
Lewandowski, you may recall, pushed Michelle Fields, a reporter for Breitbart, to the ground during the Trump campaign. At least he didn't get another man to do it for him.
"He gave his notes to a Columbia law professor because he wasn't man enough to give the notes directly to the media when he wanted them out t o the media," Lewandowski told NBC's "Today Show."
Although Trump attacked Comey as a "leaker," he also claimed Comey's testimony provided him with "total and complete vindication."
Trump also once said that he "loves"WikiLeaks.
