Former FBI Director James Comey admitted that he leaked memos from his conversations with President Trump to his friend , Daniel Richman. The issue here is that Comey now says he doesn’t have ANY copies of the notes left to show, because he deleted them from his computer.

In an Oval Office tete-a-tete the following month, Comey said Trump pressed him to drop the FBI investigation into Flynn, who had been fired for lying to the vice president about unreported conversations with the Russian ambassador.
