Photos show former FBI director James Comey entering New York Times building in Manhattan for event

Photos showed former FBI Director James Comey entering The New York Times’ Manhattan office to attend an event hosted by the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) association on Thursday, according to the newspaper’s White House correspondent, Maggie Haberman, who cited a source close to Comey.

CASA is a national advocacy group that benefits abused and neglected children. Comey and his wife have been foster parents.

The photos garnered attention on social media Thursday night due to Comey’s role in the FBI’s investigation of Russia’s interference in the US election. They also came on the same day President Donald Trump admitted that he has no recordings of his interactions with Comey, more than a month after he insinuated as much.

Haberman said Comey did not visit The Times’ newsroom.

Haberman also tweeted photos of Comey she said were from the event:

Comey later left the event in a cab, the Daily Mail reported.
