I don't have a source in front of me, but I am fairly certain that the names of those countries were leaked long before McCabe upclassified them.
The memo about letting Flynn go, doesn't look like it was shared with McCabe.
Comey kept a copy at home & gave a copy to his Chief of Staff Rybicki!
Memo 4 then served to highlight that illegal leaks of NSA communications intercepts had occurred in the Flynn case & that Comey was very concerned about them!
Questions, always questions...
This was 5 days after Trump's wiretap tweets & less than a week before the FISA on Carter Page would be revealed to the Gang of 8!
Can you see who is getting stung?
He chose not to write a classified version to keep it secret to deny that information to people who were not in the conversation!
To get a special counsel to remove McCabe from the case! Recall that McCabe testified on 5/11/17 that there was no evidence of an effort to impede the case. But the leaked memo provided that evidence!
Would those tapes reveal that the classified portion of the conversation were Trump's alibi against obstruction?
But 3 months before General Flynn was forced to plead guilty!
But McCabe didn't let Flynn go!
Because he loved his country, DOJ & FBI forcing him to inform the world that there was a classified reason for letting @GenFlynn go! A reason that was being buried by Andrew McCabe in his witch hunt for Trump!
Even better, Comey wore a white hat to take out the trash in the first pictures he let them take of him after his firing!
Even better if the people needing red pilled falsely think the memos hurt Trump!
Now Comey forgets to mention Executive Privilege that could cover his conversation with President Trump! Maybe the President waved that permission so Comey could publish it
Who contacted the NYTs first?
All to claim that 6 words Comey leaked to his lawyers (not the press) were classified information
Do you think that explains why Barr did not prosecute Comey?
Were they digging for information to thwart Comey's other cases?
