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.
