Palm Coast, FL –Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement concerning media reports that former FBI Director James Comey released a memo of his conversations with President Donald Trump that may have contained classified information without authorization and contrary to FBI regulations:

"I am alarmed at the reports that former FBI director James Comey mishandled FBI documents, some of which may contain classified information on meetings he held with President Donald Trump. Comey knows that classified information must always be handled with extreme care in order to protect the integrity of our national security, yet he has admitted he leaked information in order to get back at President Trump and trigger a special counsel. Did he reveal classified information in the process?"
