"Fox and Friends" host Steve Doocy on Tuesday retracted incorrect claims from the previous morning's show about former FBI Director James Comey's leaked memos.

"Yesterday on this program we aired and tweeted a story saying former FBI director James Comey leaked memos containing top secret information. We were mistaken in that," Doocy said. "According to a report, half of the memos contained information classified at the secret or confidential level, not top secret."

Fox and Friends corrects the record

U.S. President Trump tweeted "Fox and Friends'" claim yesterday after apparently hearing it on the program and for his part has yet to address the innacuracy.
