Newt Gingrich: Mueller Investigation 'Poisoned Fruit' After Comey Testimony

Newt makes a good point and I'm convinced that Comey can be brought up on charges. 
Those are not personal memos.  They are a work product and thus property of the FBI.  The one doing the law breaking is Comey and he's provided the evidence of  leaking information to the press.   

NewsMax reports in his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey's statement about leaking information of private conversations he had with President Donald Trump revealed the special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller was "poisoned fruit," stated former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Comey admitted he leaked the information as part of the FBI's probe into Russia's involvement in U.S. elections and the connections of the president's former national security adviser Michael Flynn with Russian officials.

"I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter – didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons – but I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel," Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Gingrich called this "the most startling revelation" from the day's testimony, as it was a "barefaced admission" of his intent to leak the documents in hopes a special counsel would be appointed to investigate the charges.
