The Daily Mail reports:

Former FBI director James Comey made a quiet visit to The New York Times building on Thursday, one of few public outings since he admitted leaking stories to the newspaper about President Trump before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8.

Comey kept his sunglasses on and his gaze forward as he marched through the front entrance of the Eighth Avenue office building which houses the publication. He was accompanied by his wife Patrice Failor who also wore sunglasses.

Unmistakable as he towered over the crowds in a crisp navy suit and tie on one of the warmest days of the year, Comey drew second-glances from some stunned by-passers.

He spent almost three hours inside before emerging, having removed his sunglasses, to hail a cab.

A New York Times Company spokeswoman poured cold water on the visit, insisting Comey did not visit the paper’s newsroom.

The New York Times Company occupies 27 of the building’s 52 floors, according to developer Forest City Ratner. It downsized its operation last year, vacating eight floors to be rented out to generate income for the company.

Other businesses which hold space there include the tech start-up Datadog and Dean and DeLuca.

Comey’s visit to the skyscraper came just a few weeks after the president’s suggestion that he may be responsible for more leaks about the administration since being fired on May 9.

Comey confessed to being the source of a leak to the Times about private, unorthodox meeting he had with the president before he was fired in June.
