President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Marc Kaskowitz, has called for former FBI Director James Comey to be investigated after Comey testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee about his abrupt firing by Trump.

During the two-and-a-half hour hearing, Comey told senators that he had written memos of all his one-on-one conversations with Trump, beginning during the presidential transition period in January. After he was fired, Comey told a “close friend who is a professor at Columbia law school” to leak the content of one of those memos to a report.

This admission, Kaskowitz said in a statement after the end of the open hearing, means that Comey “is one of these leakers” that Trump had asked him to investigate.

“Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President,” Kasowitz said.

“We will leave it [to] the appropriate authorities to determine whether this [sic] leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated.”
