US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz will file a complaint with the Justice Department over former FBI Director James Comey’s leaking of memos about his conversations with the president, US media reported on Friday.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Kasowitz will file a complaint with the Justice Department Inspector General and the Senate Judiciary Committee, NBC News reported citing a source close to the legal team.
On Thursday, Comey testified in a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that he decided to share the memo after Trump tweeted about possible secret recordings of their conversations.
"My judgement was, I needed to get that out in the public square, so I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter… because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel," Comey said.
Kasowitz said on Thursday that Comey should be investigated by the "appropriate authorities" to determine if he should be prosecuted for the disclosure.
