Comey’s un­due elec­tion in­flu­ence

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - David Pol­litt, Ca­tonsville

In­stead of spend­ing time gov­ern­ing, the Repub­li­can Party has spent an in­or­di­nate amount of time and tax­payer money look­ing for ways to pros­e­cute Hil­lary Clin­ton for crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity but with no ev­i­dence of wrong­do­ing. Now, with just days be­fore an ex­tremely di­vi­sive elec­tion, FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey, against the ad­vice of the Jus­tice De­part­ment, re­leased in­for­ma­tion about a new trove of emails, which may or may not have been sent or re­ceived by Ms. Clin­ton, that may be per­ti­nent to the Clin­ton email in­ves­ti­ga­tion (“A thumb on the scale,” Oct. 31). He noted that it may take weeks to sort through the emails and come to any con­clu­sion.

At the very least, Di­rec­tor Comey should be rep­ri­manded, if not fired, for vi­o­lat­ing FBI stand­ing guide­lines about talk­ing about cases be­fore ev­i­dence has even been ex­am­ined and ap­pear­ing to in­flu­ence the upcoming elec­tion. Vot­ers should be­ware!
