There are seven Comey memos that the former FBI Director wrote that supposedly cover his meetings with President Donald Trump. There have been a few selected leaks about these memos.

The public part of the memo story began on May 16, 2017, when the New York Times published a story headlined, “Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn …..
