Comey was a private citizen when he provided information to a friend on a memo prepared as a personal record of a discussion he had with President Trump. This does not mean the memo itself was classified information. He did not commit any crime. If he did, Attorney General Jeff Sessions would have thrown the book at him in an instant. Comey’s version of events of his discussions in the oval office differs with President Trump’s version. I believe Comey. Both Republicans and Democrats have given James Comey high marks as honest and a straight shooter.
