Senator Rand Paul is very concerned about Jim Comey’s leaking and wants to know how long it has been going on.

There are other leaks as President Trump predicted today.
Comey testified last week that he leaked the memo detailing his first meeting with President Trump through a friend. Daniel Richman then confirmed to CNN that he was that friend. The memo, ironically, is now missing.
When the NY Times reporter Michael Schmidt wrote the specific memo story, he said that there were two people he was in contact with who had seen the memo.
From NY Times:
Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.
The NY Times story that first mentioned the memo was on May 16, however, all the details of the memo were revealed in a NY Times article on May 11th, the day before the Trump tweet that allegedly spurred Comey into leaking the memo.
There was also a March 5th story.
One day after Trump accused President Barack Obama of wiretapping him at Trump Tower, the Times reported that Comey was furious at the charge. Its unnamed sources were “senior American officials.”
Michael Schmidt was the reporter for all three stories. Schmidt certainly seems to have a tight connection to James Comey. Can he read minds?
There was yet another leak that might be tied to Comey. The Washington Post listed “Justice Department officials” as anonymous sources for a bombshell report saying Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions failed to disclose two meetings with the Russian ambassador.
The Department of Justice has also called Comey’s testimony inaccurate. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify Tuesday, possibly to rebut the allegations made by Comey.
Was Comey the biggest leaker as Karl Rove recently suggested?
Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch said Comey’s leaks are lawless.

There will be more information forthcoming.
John Solomon of Circa News told Sean Hannity last week that there were other meetings between James Comey and Loretta Lynch that were suspect and they are going to come to light in the coming weeks. There needs to be more focus on their meetings.
“I think there is probably more interest that should be focused on James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch after what we heard today. And I am hearing tonight that Comey may have had other meetings with Lynch that are going to come to light in the next few weeks.”
How many leaks is Jim Comey responsible for? There are many that appear to have come from the FBI.
It’s ironic that Comey was so highly critical of Rudy Giuliani when he – Rudy – was accused of leaking.
Giuliani told Fox hosts that he had sources inside the intelligence agencies giving him information. He later said they were retired.
Senator Patrick Leahy, a Socialist, asked Comey about during a set of hearings and Comey said they were investigating Giuliani and warned of severe consequences.
“I don’t know yet, but if I find out that people were leaking information about our investigations whether to reporters or private parties, there will be severe consequences,” Comey replied.
Comey’s a joke.
