New documents are shedding light on former FBI Director James Comey’s role in the Mueller probe.
According to information turned over by the FBI on Monday, Comey was considered a witness in the special counsel’s investigation and his memos were of interest to Mueller.
Despite several FOIA requests, the FBI is refusing to make the Comey memos public. Those notes detail Comey’s meetings with President Trump before he was fired.
The Department of Justice has said the memos contain sensitive information that may hurt the department if made public.
