Comey’s undue election influence
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!
