Despite admitting President Trump “simply hoped” the FBI would drop its probe into former national security advisor Michael Flynn, former FBI Director James Comey said he interpreted this as a direct order, which contradicts his sworn Senate testimony on May 3.
Former FBI Director James Comey admitted Thursday to orchestrating leaks to the press in hopes of prompting the appointment of a special prosecutor.
Marco Rubio asked Comey why so many leaks about the investigation kept being released to the press, but he couldn’t explain.
Comey took Trump’s “hope” that he would “let go” of Flynn investigation as an order.
Former FBI director James Comey openly admitted before the Senate Intelligence committee that he leaked memos to the press.

Comey confirmed that a New York Times article about Trump colluding with Russia was based on false information.
