The Department of Justice is going to release former FBI Director James Comey’s memos to Congress Thursday afternoon, a source with direct knowledge told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The former FBI director drafted at least seven memos detailing his meetings and conversations with President Donald Trump.

Comey proceeded to give the memos to his friend, Columbia University professor Daniel Richman. The professor later gave the memos to the FBI at the agency’s request.

Many on the Republican side of the aisle see Comey’s move as dubious and question the legality of those leaks. Four of the seven memos Comey drafted contained secret or confidential information. Comey leaked four of the memos to his confidant, Richman. Arithmetically, the numbers suggest Comey released classified information to a civilian.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte was rumored to be mulling over issuing a subpoena to the DOJ this week in order to obtain the memos.
