The “friend” whom former FBI Director James Comey entrusted to leak a memo of his conversations with President Trump to The New York Times has apparently gone into hiding.
Following Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in which Comey testified that he had asked his friend to leak the conversation details, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman confirmed to reporters that he was that friend and then disappeared, the New York Post reported.

Richman, a former federal prosecutor who worked with Comey at Columbia in 2013, left his home on Henry Street in Brooklyn’s Richmond Heights shortly after the hearing. Neighbors and family refused to answer questions and a doorman at the building turned reporters away.

Comey may have inadvertently opened a can of worms on himself by telling the Senate Intel Committee that he “asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter” in the hopes it “might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
Shortly afterward, the Columbia University website reportedly crashed, according to the Post, as it was inundated with people trying to find out more about the man whose biography at the Ivy League school states he is “currently an adviser to FBI Director James B. Comey.”
The biography also notes that Richman was a consultant to the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury on federal criminal matters.
Days before the November 2016 election, Richman appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper to discuss his friend Comey’s decision to release information about emails related to the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her email server.
