Add James Comey to the lengthy list of people Trump has threatened to sue.

The president’s legal team plans to file a complaint against the fired FBI director for leaking memos about his conversations with Trump, two sources familiar with the situation told CNN. The complaints will be filed with the Justice Department’s Inspector General and the Senate Judiciary Committee early next week.

Comey revealed to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that he gave his friend a copy of the memos to leak t0 the media in an attempt to inspire the appointment of a special counsel.

The memos detail serious accusations that Trump pressured Comey to end the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

As a presidential candidate, Trump often made threats to sue, but never followed through. The list includes Sen. Ted Cruz, the Republican Party of Louisiana, the Washington Post, the New York Times and women who accused him of sexual assault.
