Professor Jonathan Turley, one of the fairer and open-minded law professors, recently penned an op-ed at The Hill and said he was alarmed by former FBI director James Comey’s admission. Comey admitted being the source of a leak of memos, which gave his side of the story of his conversations with President Trump.
Turley said the following:
Comey said that he took these actions days after his termination, when he said that he woke up in the middle of the night and realized suddenly that the memos could be used to contradict Trump. It was a bizarrely casual treatment of material that would be viewed by many as clearly FBI information. He did not confer with the FBI or the Justice Department. He did not ask for any classification review despite one of the parties described being the president of the United States. He simply sent the memos to a law professor to serve as a conduit to the media.
