So long as FBI Director, James Comey, was doing Barack Obama’s bidding, Progressives were pleased. However, since Friday, Hillary Clinton, her campaign, Progressives bureaucrats and heir conglomerate of propagandists have stopped just short of demanding a bonfire with the FBI Director as fuel.
Never one to sit out a burning, Nevada’s dirt bag Senator Harry Reid, taking the low road as usual is accusing Comey of violating the Hatch Act.
“Your actions in recent months have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information, with what appears to be clear intent to aid one political party over another. I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act.”
Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News “Outnumbered” pointed out that Harry Reid got it wrong (who would have thought). FBI director, James Comey, did not in violate the Hatch Act.
As expected Marxist media propagandists are sticking with the talking points that Comey violated the Hatch Act.
Harry Reid, in the same letter, in an act reminiscent of his 2012 smear against Mitt Romney accuses Comey of covering up a relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
“in my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about the close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information.”
Below is Reid’s letter to Comey in its entirety.
Daniel J. Sobieski of American Thinker calling out Reid wrote:
Sorry, Harry — the Hatch Act was written to prevent government employees from campaigning on the government’s dime for a political candidate. It was not designed to prevent an FBI director from keeping Congress informed of any changes or new information in a federal investigation on which he has already testified before Congress.
While Comey can say he was keeping a pledge to Congress regarding a federal criminal investigation of a presidential candidate, Sen. Reid has no excuse for the lie he admitted telling in 2012 about Mitt Romney, an attempt to influence the presidential results…
Harry Reid is a liar, drunk on his own kool-aid and Hillary Clinton has no one to blame but herself[…]
