We discovered this week that former FBI Director James Comey leaked a memo of his conversation with the president to the New York Times via a close friend of his, and apparently, in light of disclosing this information, his pal has gone into hiding.
This bombshell came to light after Comey testified at a Senate Intelligence Committee briefing on Thursday.
According to BizPacReview, Following Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in which Comey testified that he had asked his friend to leak the conversation details, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman confirmed to reporters that he was that friend and then disappeared, the New York Post reported.

Richman, a former federal prosecutor who worked with Comey at Columbia in 2013, left his home on Henry Street in Brooklyn’s Richmond Heights shortly after the hearing. Neighbors and family refused to answer questions and a doorman at the building turned reporters away.
Comey may have inadvertently opened a can of worms on himself by telling the Senate Intel Committee that he “asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter” in the hopes it “might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
Shortly afterward, the Columbia University website reportedly crashed, according to the Post, as it was inundated with people trying to find out more about the man whose biography at the Ivy League school states he is “currently an adviser to FBI Director James B. Comey.”
The biography also notes that Richman was a consultant to the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury on federal criminal matters.
The plot just keeps getting thicker, doesn’t it?
Comey and his pal may have just brought down a whole world of hurt on themselves. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into another Seth Rich story.
Unfortunately for the left, much of Comey’s testimony clears Trump of any sort of fabricated “collusion” with Russia, so now they’ll have to keep digging and getting creative to find the next fake news story they can attack the president over.
