Former US attorney is part ex-FBI Director James Comey’s legal team

The two men once worked together as federal prosecutors in New York.

Fitzgerald has been “part of Mr. Comey's legal team since May 2017," Fitzgerald said in a statement to ABC News.

After spending more than ten years as a convicted liar in a leak investigation, Libby was granted a full pardon by President Trump on April 13. That same day Trump tweeted that “Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR....He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted.”

More recently in private practice, he was retained by Michigan State University in the wake of sexual abuse allegations involving Dr. Larry Nassar to help the university conduct an internal review while facilitating cooperation with law enforcement agencies investigating the matter.

Fitzgerald is a partner at the powerhouse law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom., where he has practiced law since leaving the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 2012.
