Twitter erupted into mockery after news broke that Donald Trump’s lawyer (real estate) Marc Kasowitz plans to file a complaint against James Comey (the private citizen) for sharing his unclassified memos with the media via a friend.
This weak move comes after Comey’s bombshell testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday where he called Donald Trump a liar multiple times.
BREAKING: Trump's private lawyer to file leak complaint against Comey with DOJ's Inspector General & Senate Judiciary Cmte.

Comey shared the memo after Donald Trump threatened him with a tweet saying that there may be tapes of their conversations. If the so-called investigation finds wrongdoing on Comey’s part, what’s the most that could happen to him? A note in his file. LMAO.
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

Um, this is like the Obama wiretap lie. It was basically nowhere but Trump used House Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes to run interference for him to sabotage the investigation.
A counter complaint is coming. Norm Eisen tweeted: “Th is is an abuse of process & we will be filing a defense of Comey. Marc Kasowitz beware: there r serious consequences for abuse of process.”

#Trump loves suing people. But it’s like peeing in the wind. Pun intended.

One of these two men is lying.
I wonder if it's the guy who served 3 presidents from 2 parties or the one who said Obama is from Kenya? pic.twitter.com/UBlJFw4zae
