The Senate Intelligence Committee has reached an agreement to get former FBI Director James Comey’s memos detailing his conversations with President Trump, Politico reported Wednesday.
“I’ve got a commitment,” Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said when asked whether his panel would receive the memos. However, when asked who gave him that commitment, Burr said: “I’m not going to tell you.”
Burr said he is “fairly certain of the timeline” for getting the memos, suggesting that it would be soon. “It does us no good later,” he said.
The Hill added:
“Several House and Senate committees requested the memos after Comey said in his testimony before the Senate Intelligence panel earlier this month that he had authorized a friend to share the contents of one of the memos with a reporter.
Comey’s friend, identified as Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman, shared the memos with a reporter and has reportedly turned the documents over to the FBI.
Comey said in his testimony before Burr’s committee that the memos included a detailed account of the president asking him to ease off the FBI investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.”
