Former FBI Director, James Comey once again hit the spotlight after new details on his involvement in the entire Trump mess came to surface.

Donald Trump obliged to pull back on a certain story on Comey he had talked about previously, and which was in regards to Trump’s statements that Comey’s memos contained highly-classified information.
At the time, Fox News reporters stated that although James Comey insisted nothing was classified in the memos, this is not the case.
Trump is well-known for his ‘fake news’ speeches, so this time around it did him justice.
Here is what he tweeted at the time:
‘James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!’

Whole lot of blabbing, right?
Then, Fox host, Steve Doocy, corrected the mistake and offered an apology. Was it sincere? It’s hard to tell!
‘[Monday] on this program we aired and tweeted this story saying former FBI director James Comey leaked memos containing top-secret information. We were mistaken in that according to the report half of the information in the report clarified secret or classified level not top-secret. Documents in which Mr. Comey leaked are at this point unclear. Just wanted to straighten that out, ‘he stated.
Another tweet also hit the spotlight, stating:
‘Correction: Comey’s memos did not have top-secret info. The report says half were classified at secret or confidential level, not top-secret’
Correction: Comey's memos did not have top secret info. The report says half were classified at secret or confidential level, not top secret

Fox might get in plenty of trouble for reporting on the story in the first place. Blaming the former FBI Director of things he never did is not only low, but also a slander.
