'Fox & Friends' Corrects Story Trump Tweeted Claiming Comey Leaked Classified Information

FOX & Friends retract Comey accusationWhen Fox & Friends—President Donald Trump's favorite morning show—pushed a story Monday about former FBI Director James Comey leaking classified information, the president was quick to tweet about it.

"A brand new bombshell report accuses Comey of putting our national security at risk, according to The Hill the FBI director's personal memos detailing private conversations with President Trump contained top secret information," a Fox host said in a video Trump retweeted.

The president followed that retweet with a post of his own, reading, "James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!"

But as The Washington Post pointed out Monday, the Fox & Friends report was misleading. The Post wrote that while there were reportedly seven total Comey memos, just four apparently contained information that was considered "secret" or "confidential"—not "top secret"—and there is no evidence the memo the former FBI director sent to a friend contained classified information. Comey indicated under oath the memo he shared did not have classified information, and his friend told CNN Monday that "no memo was given to me that was marked 'classified.'"
