REPORT: James Comey Hires Former US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as Personal Lawyer

Fired FBI Director James Comey has reportedly hired former US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to be one of his personal lawyers.

Talking Points Memo reported exclusively:

Fired FBI Director James Comey has retained former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as one of his personal attorneys, bringing in a heavy-hitting former prosecutor, close friend and longtime colleague to help him navigate his dramatic role as a potential witness in the investigation of President Trump’s campaign and potential obstruction of justice.

Two Capitol Hill sources independently confirmed to TPM that Fitzgerald was serving as a lawyer for Comey.

Comey and Patrick Fitzgerald go back decades as buddies.

In the early 2000’s, then-Deputy AG James Comey authorized the special counsel investigation into the unauthorized disclosure of CIA employee Valerie Plame.
