(PJMedia) Jay Sekulow, the Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, said Friday that former FBI director James Comey admitted under oath that he committed a crime when he testified before the Senate Thursday.
In an op-ed at Fox News Sekulow called Comey the "leaker-in-chief."
Not only did Comey's testimony clear President Trump – admitting under oath that the President was not under any investigation – his testimony unmasked Comey's real motivation in all of this.

It was a stunning revelation. Comey – the nation's top intelligence official – admitted under oath that he leaked privileged documents to a friend to give to reporters at the New York Times. Memos that he had written in the course of his official government duties about privileged conversations with the President. The reason: Comey testified that he did so to manipulate the situation and force the appointment of a Special Counsel. (And, as we know – that's ultimately what occurred.)
That's right – the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigations admits to being the leaker-in-chief – taking it upon himself to do what others are being prosecuted for – leaking information in order to damage the President and the Trump Administration.
