In a Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham, Former US Attorney General put to rest the mainstream media’s claim that Comey DIDN’T leak classified material. Ingraham’s first guest, Steven Mulroy argued that Comey did nothing wrong.
“The Wall Street Journal has reported that there are only two memos that Comey gave to his friend that had any classified information. In one of them, he went through and redacted out the classified information and the other one wasn’t classified at the time. It was only classified later on,” argued Mulroy.
“So it seems like his course of conduct here was fairly anodyne; fairly inoffensive. You can’t very well blame him if a document wasn’t classified until a later point in time. That kind of retroactive liability, I think he could argue is unfair,” said Mulroy.
However, The Former US Attorney General Michael Mukasey argued back in a later segment. “I think we ought to put to rest something one of your guests said in the last segment about how well the memos weren’t marked classified at the time. They were classified as soon as he wrote them,” argued Mukasey.
“I had an experience when I started as AG of taking notes at a meeting at a top secret procedure. And when I got up to leave the meeting my then chief of staff leaned over and wrote in big block letters at the top TS/SCI meaning “top secret, secured compartmentalized information.” In other words, those weren’t my notes, those were the government’s notes. And those weren’t Mr. Comey’s memos, those were the government’s memos,” he argued.
