Government Watchdog Files Lawsuit Against Justice Department for Release of ‘Comey Memos’
JUNE 18, 2017
Government watchdog Judicial Watch announced on Friday it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice regarding notes former FBI Director James Comey said he took following meetings and conversations with President Donald Trump.
The notes have been referred in the media as “the Comey memos.”
Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier this month that he took notes because he was afraid Trump might lie about what they had discussed.
As posted on the Judicial Watch website, the suit was filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a previous FOIA request.
