Modest Pushback

The Trump Administration's counter-attack begins: A leak complaint will be filed against James Comey:
President Donald Trump’s private attorney plans to file a leak complaint [that] will focus on Mr. Comey’s testimony Thursday that he passed his notes about his conversations with the president to a friend after his firing, and authorized that friend to release them to a reporter. Mr. Comey said he released only unclassified notes about his recollections of his meetings with the president.
A "leak complaint" seems like modest pushback. It's very likely that this is only the first move in a long battle that will encompass much more than James Comey's conflict with Donald Trump.
