BLUNT: “You said, after you were dismissed, you gave information to a friend so that friend could get that information into the public media.”
COMEY: “Correct.”
BLUNT: “What kind of information was that? Wasn’t that (ph) — what kind of information did you give to a friend?”
COMEY: “That the — the — the Flynn conversation, that the president asked me to let the — the Flynn — I’m forgetting my exact own words, but the — the conversation in the Oval Office.BLUNT: So you didn’t consider your memo or your sense of that conversation to be a government document? You consider it to be somehow your own personal document that you could share with the media as you wanted to?”
COMEY: “Correct. I…”
BLUNT: “Through a friend?”
COMEY: “… I understood this to be my recollection, recorded, of my conversation with the president. As a private citizen, I felt free to share that. I thought it very important to get it out.”
BLUNT: So were all of your memos that you’ve recorded on classified or other documents memos that might be yours as a private citizen?”
COMEY: “I’m sorry, I’m not following the question.”
BLUNT: “Well, I think you said you’d used classified — a classified…”
(CROSSTALK)
COMEY: “Not the classified documents. Unclassified — I don’t have any of them anymore. I gave them to the special counsel. But, yeah, my view was that the content of those unclassified — the memorialization of those conversations was my recollection recorded.”
