Poll: 47% of Americans Believe Comey Should Be Prosecuted for Leaking Trump Memos

Former FBI Director James Comey testified about his memos on President Trump last year.

A new poll shows that nearly half of Americans want former FBI Director James Comey prosecuted for leaking information to the media.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters found that 47% believe Comey should be prosecuted for leaking the memos he wrote about his meetings with President Trump. That’s an increase from 41% in 2017.

Of those polled, 35% said they don’t believe Comey should be prosecuted, and 18% indicated they were undecided.

Last month, the Justice Department’s inspector general revealed that Comey violated FBI policy in his handling of the Trump memos.

The IG said Comey kept the government documents at his home and engineered their release to the media. But the IG also said there was “no evidence” that Comey’s leaked memos were classified.
