On Thursday, sources told CNN that the U.S. Department of Justice is expected to release the memos of former FBI Director James Comey to Congress at some point today.
In a January report from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Grassley wrote: “After a review of the seven memoranda created by former Director Comey, it is now clear that four are marked classified at various levels of sensitivity. Former Director Comey reportedly provided copies of four memos to Columbia Law School Professor Daniel Richman. If true, that would mean at least one disclosed memo contained information now-marked classified.”
Fox News noted that the memos are reportedly being delivered to the House Judiciary Committee Thursday evening, “following threats from committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., to subpoena Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for failing to meet the deadline to submit the documents.”
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), said that releasing Comey’s memos puts Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in serious jeopardy of being “being placed in contempt of Congress and the special counsel investigation of being shut down,” the Washington Examiner reported.
