James Comey has been good at avoiding consequences for his wrongdoings.
The worst amount of trouble he’s been in was being fired as FBI Director by President Trump.
But Trey Gowdy just found the smoking gun that could send him to prison.
Trey Gowdy is well known for his brutal questionings of those testifying in front of the Senate.
He always knows what to say to break anyone.
And although he wasn’t the one questioning him, Gowdy found something interesting about a statement that Comey made to Bret Baier during a Fox News interview.
Gowdy believes that Comey is distorting the definition of an information “leak” in order to suit his own purposes.
This occurred when Comey was trying to convince Baier that he didn’t really “leak” his memos on meetings with President Trump, but rather just shared personal correspondence that could be seen no different than a private diary.
Trey Gowdy didn’t like that definition one bit.
While speaking with Tucker Carlson, Gowdy stated that Comey “has a definition of the word leak that no one else has.”
He then contends that what Comey is describing is a felony, as he disclosed a confidential conversation to people unauthorized to hear it, which is the definition of a leak.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy says former FBI Director James Comey is distorting the definition of an information “leak” to suit his own purposes.
The South Carolina congressman told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Thursday night that Comey was twisting the facts in an interview with Fox’s Bret Baier earlier that evening.
Comey was trying to convince Baier that he had not really “leaked” his memos of meetings with President Donald Trump to the media but had simply shared personal correspondence that could be seen as no different than a private “diary.”
That didn’t wash with Gowdy, who told Carlson that Comey “has a definition of the word leak that no one else has.”
“What he says is a leak is what the rest of us call a felony,” Gowdy insisted. “Leaking is disclosing a confidential conversation, which is exactly what he did.””

James Comey has been having a hard time since being fired by President Trump from his position as FBI Director.
He has clamored for relevancy, even writing a book, which so far hasn’t been doing so well for him.
Along with the release of his book, Comey has spent a lot of time talking to the media.
As this recent interview proves, that could turn out to be his downfall.
With his constant need for attention, it isn’t surprising that he would say stupid things.
Do you think James Comey should be investigated for leaking classified information?
