Democrats blus­ter over Comey

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - David A. Yen­san, Aberdeen

The re­cent rev­e­la­tion that the FBI has re­opened the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Hil­lary Clin­ton’s emails was as­ton­ish­ing (“FBI speeds up its in­ves­ti­ga­tion into pos­si­ble Clin­ton-re­lated emails after crit­i­cism,” Nov. 1). What was even more as­ton­ish­ing, how­ever, was the rank-and-file Democrats’ hue and cry for FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey to re­lease all of the in­for­ma­tion at his dis­posal.

Mary­land’s own, dis­grace­ful Rep. Eli­jah Cum­mings jumped out there and spouted the party line as well. This guy is such an em­bar­rass­ment but knows that the Av­er­age Joe has no idea about civics or law. What law en­force­ment agency would ever dis­close its in­for­ma­tion prior to a case go­ing to court?

Se­nate Mi­nor­ity Leader Harry Reid took to the mi­cro­phone on the Se­nate floor and ac­cused Mr. Comey of a crime. The Democrats have con­tin­ued to in­sist that we look way over there while slip­ping the aces out of their sleeves once again. Di­rec­tor Comey soiled his and his agency’s rep­u­ta­tion once but stood up to the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s pup­pet mas­ters and at­tempted to right the wrong.

It cer­tainly ap­pears as though Ms. Clin­ton has done some­thing very wrong. If she were as honor­able as the FBI di­rec­tor, she would stand down right now.
