From The Blaze:
Former FBI Director James Comey is facing a challenge to his New York bar membership for allegedly leaking memos that detail his interactions with President Donald Trump, The Washington Times reports.
Attorney Ty Clevenger wrote the New York lawyers’ disciplinary committee on Friday, saying that if Comey leaked classified information, it should boost the case against him, according to The Washington Times.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) earlier this week revealed that Comey allegedly wrote seven memos about his interactions with Trump. The government believes at least four of the memos may contain classified information. Additionally, Comey is accused of leaking at least four memos to a friend who is a law professor.
Grassley contents that it’s likely at least one of the memos Comey leaked to his friend had classified information.
Clevenger maintains that Comey’s actions go against New York bar rules that prohibit attorneys from “illegal conduct that adversely reflects on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer,” The Washington Times reported.
