Former FBI Director James Comey’s potentially explosive memos about his encounters with President Trump are now in the hands of the bureau.
Politico reports that Comey’s friend, Daniel Richman, a Columbia University law professor, turned over the records to the FBI, which is investigating alleged collusion between Trump’s inner circle and Russian officials to meddle in the presidential election.
The FBI also is trying to determine whether Trump tried to obstruct justice by firing Comey after he refused to stop the Russia investigation.
Comey said he kept detailed memos of his murky conversations with Trump.
Those memos could become key evidence in the case against Trump.
