Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid threatened FBI Director James Comey with violating the Hatch Act because he may have crashed Hillary Clinton’s victory party just when the Trump piñata came out. But his real threat wasn’t that Comey messed with the election, it’s that he didn’t mess with it enough.
“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisers, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity,” Reid wrote.
“The public has a right to know this information.” Reid added.
You see, there’s got to be a “fairness doctrine” in federal investigations–if you investigate Clinton because she’s an arrogant lawbreaker who believes herself above the law, you must investigate Trump.
Trump has a lot of issues, but he never set up his own private email server while serving as a cabinet member and mishandled thousands of sensitive and hundreds of classified emails. He never took SCI–compartmentalized–secrets and exposed them to America’s enemies.
Apparently, Reid thinks the FBI should trump up something on Trump just to even the score (pun intended).
It’s a dangerous game, Senator Reid. Better to keep the FBI what it’s supposed to be: a law enforcement and investigative agency, than a political football or the American secret police.
