'The Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds': Gohmert Blasts Comey as 'Leaker-in-Chief'
President Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning to blast former FBI Director James Comey as a "leaker."
Trump said he felt "complete vindication" from yesterday's Senate testimony despite "so many false statements and lies."

Comey acknowledged in the hearing that he passed the contents of private memos about his conversations with Trump to the New York Times through a friend.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) reacted this morning on "Fox & Friends," saying the tweet this morning was "appropriate" and calling out Comey's "hypocrisy."
"For it to turn out that the guy that was head of the FBI while the Obama administration prosecuted more leakers than all the other administrations put together and it turns out he was a leaker-in-chief. ... It really does appear he's been after Trump for a while now," he said.
Gohmert criticized Comey for keeping detailed memos on his discussions with Trump, but not with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Comey revealed at the hearing that he was "concerned" by a directive from Lynch to refer to the Hillary Clinton email probe as a "matter," not a criminal investigation.
