Wa Examiner: Former FBI Director James Comey refused to tell Congress in a classified setting about a dubious Russian intelligence document, according to a lawmaker who was in attendance.
Trey Gowdy, a former Republican congressman from South Carolina who left Congress one year ago, said Comey claimed the information was “so highly classified” that he could not discuss it in setting in which he was authorized to discuss classified material.

“I know that fact pattern that is referenced in this story,” Gowdy said on Fox News, where he is a contributor. “Jim Comey was asked behind closed doors in a classified setting to address it, and he would not do it.
