(CNSNews.com) - Former FBI Director James Comey said on Sunday he has "no idea" if he is a target of U.S. Attorney John Durham's ongoing investigation into the origins of the FBI's Trump-Russia probe.
"I have had no contact with him and haven't talked to him," Comey told CBS's "Face the Nation." "I can't imagine that I'm a target," Comey said:
I saw the news report that John Brennan was a witness. I -- given that I know what happened during 2016, which was a bunch of people trying to do the right thing consistent with the law, I'm not worried at all about that investigation of the investigation.
Next, I'm sure, will be an investigation of the investigation of the investigation. They just want to have an investigation to talk about.
In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" back in December, Comey admitted "there was real sloppiness" in each of the four FISA applications on Carter Page. He spoke after the Justice Department inspector-general released a report detailing "significant inaccuracies and omissions" in the FBI's FISA process.
"Seventeen things that should have been in the application or at least discussed and characterized differently," Comey said at the time. "It was not acceptable."
In another report, the Justice Department Inspector General found that Comey leaked sensitive information to a friend -- who gave it to the New York Times -- to force the appointment of a special prosecutor.
The OIG found that Comey "set a dangerous example" for some 35,000 current FBI employees -- and the many thousands more former FBI employees -- who also have access to or knowledge of non-public information.
In December 2018, Comey told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace he sent two FBI agents to visit then-National Security Adviser Mike Flynn at the White House on January 24, 2017, because he figured he could get away with it.
"I sent them," Comey said. "Something we've -- I probably wouldn't have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized investigation -- a more organized administration. In the George W. Bush administration, for example, or the Obama administration."
