[Ed. – We gave Andrew McCarthy his due yesterday. His warning was valid, but updated information from Senator Charles Grassley indicates the memos in question were, in fact, classified.]
The memos themselves still haven’t been published, but according to The Hill, officials familiar with them confirmed the content as classified. They have been turned over to Special Counsel Bob Mueller as part of his investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election.
This revelation raises the possibility that Comey broke his own agency’s rules and ignored the same security protocol that he publicly criticized Hillary Clinton over in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election.
During an interview with Fox News Tuesday morning, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley confirmed that the memos do in fact contain classified information and that he expects to received them in the coming days.
