Yesterday Fox News breathlessly reported James Comey’s detailed memos of his conversations with Donald Trump contained ‘top secret’ information. 

The segment was tweeted from the Fox and Friends account and shortly thereafter, the Tweeter-in-Chief gleefully chimed in:

James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2017


The story fell apart and this morning, Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy admitted they were “mistaken”:

Yesterday on this program we aired and tweeted this story saying former FBI director James Comey leaked memos containing top secret information. We were mistaken in that according to the report half of the information in the report clarified secret or classified level not top secret. Documents in which Mr. Comey leaked are at this point unclear.

Just wanted to straighten that out.

Will Donald Trump apologize to James Comey and admit he too was mistaken?
