The hosts of “Fox and Friends” clarified a point on a story they reported Monday about former FBI director James Comey leaking classified information, with host Steve Doocy saying the program was “mistaken” on the story.
“Yesterday on this program, we aired and tweeted this story saying former FBI director James Comey leaked memos containing top secret information. We were mistaken in that, according to the report, half of the memos contained information classified at the secret or confidential level, not top secret and the markings of the government documents in which Mr. Comey leaked are at this point unclear. Just wanted to straighten that out,” he said.
The clarification comes after the President tweeted about the story Monday, saying Comey leaked classified information to the media and adding, “That is so illegal!”
James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!
