"That's non-negotiable", Comey said at the CNN event at his alma mater, the College of William & Mary in Virginia.
Cooper also discussed Comey's firing with him and the high-profile cases he handled.
Timothy Edgar, a senior fellow at Brown University's Watson Institute and a former national security and intelligence official, said the government's tendency to hew toward secrecy means it's possible none of Comey's memos have been properly classified in the first place. The crowd inside erupted in cheers when Comey came out to the stage.
There were about 100 students that didn't make it into the main town hall meeting that went to a student watch party.
Before the event, about 15 students waited in a separate line with hopes to enter in case a lottery victor did not show up. And then he looked me in the eye and he said, "Nothing has happened, nothing, in the past year that has changed my view of that". In a television interview, Trump said his dislike for the Russian Federation investigation was part of the decision.
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer expressed concerns about reports that the Columbia law professor who James Comey used as a go-between to leak sensitive information to the media previously worked as a special Federal Bureau of Investigation employee.
The OIG is investigating Comey's handling of memos he provided to his friend, Daniel Richman, regarding conversations Comey had with President Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported April 20. He added, "I handled the memos appropriately". "The status of the other three memos is less certain, but it does not appear that any material coded as "classified" at the time was included in the transfer". "Although obsessed with his own press coverage, he evaluates it based not on whether it provides knowledge or understanding, but exclusively on whether the daily coverage helps him and hurts his opponents". And Trump, who has showed a knack for helping publications he despises, tweeted that Comey was an "untruthful slime ball".
Similarly, when Comey informed Trump in January 2017 of the contents of the then-unpublished Steele dossier, he didn't reveal that the Clinton campaign had paid for it.
"Hello, you need to publicly provide a list of other books besides James Comey's that are locked in at a 4+ Star rating", said Facebook user Tom Lakinshire on Amazon's Facebook page. Anthony Weiner. After Comey learned of this, he made his October 28 announcement that the Clinton email investigation was being reopened. "Based on values, I think the American people were faced with a choice between the least popular, least trusted candidates in modern history", he said, but "between the two, looking in hindsight, Hillary Clinton is more enmeshed in, trained in, respectful of the norms and traditions I'm so worry are being eroded today". Trump has called him "slippery Comey", so what was Comey's nickname for Trump, Connelly asked.
