[See NewsBusters for more.] Could James Comey have broken the law? In a day dedicated to obsessive, live coverage of Jeff Sessions testifying about the Russian investigation, two journalists at CBS actually circled back to a potentially big problem for Comey and his liberal defenders: Whether or not he broke the law by leaking a memo to the media. Regarding the leaking, legal correspondent Jan Crawford speculated, “I mean, is that lawful? Arguably that's a government document. He wrote it on a government computer and a government vehicle. There is an open legal question about whether or not pure information is considered property.”
