There are grumblings on capital hill about the FBI director, Comey. By foolishly making a public announcement that the agency is reviewing newly discovered emails related to Hillary Clinton’s personal server, has inserted himself yet again into the campaign.
He says his clumsy handling of the probe is reason for Comey to resign said Paul Callan is a CNN legal analyst, a former NYC homicide prosecutor.
The old, sensible FBI rule book apparently has been thrown on the trash heap this year. While undoubtedly attempting to be open and “transparent,” to protect the reputation of the FBI, the FBI director has tossed a Molotov cocktail into the presidential race.
The FBI was now taking “appropriate investigative steps. … to assess their importance to our investigation.” What in the world does this mean? One thing it means is that this issue will move to front and center during the final days of the presidential campaign.
Voters must now be subjected to endless speculation in the press and explicit accusations from the Trump campaign and other Republican candidates that Hillary Clinton is a “criminal” aided and abetted by a rigged FBI and Justice Department. Comey’s “openness and transparency” will blow up in his face and further tarnish the FBI’s reputation. He has reinserted the Bureau into the political process.
