Comey: New York Times’ Report Was ‘Not True’

Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.): “So again, so the American people can understand this, that report by the New York Times was not true. Is that a fair statement?”

James Comey: “In the main, it was not true. Again, all of you know this, maybe the American people don’t, the challenge, and I’m not picking on reporters, about writing on classified information is the people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on and those of us who know what’s going on are not talking about it, and we don’t call the press to say, ‘Hey, you got that thing wrong about this sensitive topic.’ You have to leave it there.”
