Comey Buddy Who Leaked Confidential FBI Documents to the Press Now Claims He's Comey's Attorney

I suppose this means he'll invoke attorney-client privilege to hide Comey's misdeeds -- as well as his own.

After all, it's not just illegal for Comey to leak confidential papers -- it's usually illegal for any non-authorized person to possess them or transmit them.

The Federalist called Richman about this matter, and heard the surprise news that now Richman was, allegedly Comey's attorney.

Or "attorney," anyway.

"If it's true that Professor Richman had four of the seven memos, then in light of the fact that four of the seven memos the Committee reviewed are classified, it would appear that at least one memo the former FBI director gave Professor Richman contained classified information," [Senator and RUSSIAN BOT Chuck] Grassley noted in the letter.

Reached by phone on Tuesday, Richman refused to say when his legal representation of Comey began or whether he was personally representing Comey when the former FBI director testified before Congress in June 2017 about his deliberate leaking of the FBI records. The specific timing of the attorney-client relationship is important, because it may shield conversations between Comey and Richman regarding the coordinated leak of FBI records to the media from law enforcement scrutiny. Richmanís legal work on behalf of Comey was not known before today, as Comey testified before Congress in 2017 that Richman was merely a friend.
