Government watchdog group Judicial Watch announced on Friday a new lawsuit against the Department of Justice that involves former FBI Director James Comey.
In a statement, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton called it a “scandal” that his organization has to sue the government in order to secure the release of the memo.
“That we have to sue in federal court to get a document that was read to a reporter at The New York Times is a scandal,” Fitton said. “This Comey memo should be released forthwith and, frankly, the president can and should order its immediate release.”
