oped: You guessed it – the Dems are suggesting Director Comey is participating in a right-wing conspiracy against Hillary. Funny, I thought it was the FBI’s job to investigate possible illegal activity. This is what is referred to as the Kettle Black Syndrome!
Hot Air reports –
That was quick! A PAC called the Democratic Coalition Against Trump has filed a complaint with the Department of Justice against FBI Director Comey. The complaint accuses Comey of interfering in the election. Here’s the press release:
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility on Friday against FBI Director James Comey for interfering in the Presidential election, following the FBI’s decision to open up an investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails this close to Election Day. Federal employees are forbidden from participating in political activities under the Hatch Act.
“It is absolutely absurd that FBI Director Comey would support Donald Trump like this with only 11 days to go before the election,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump. “It is an obvious attack from a lifelong Republican who used to serve in the Bush White House, just to undermine her campaign. Comey needs to focus on stopping terrorists and protecting America, not investigating our soon to be President-Elect Hillary Clinton.”
For this to be a violation of the Hatch Act it would be necessary to prove that Comey was not performing his duties as FBI Director but was raising this to impact the election. Obviously this coalition doesn’t have any proof that’s the case but by making the accusation they help the Clinton campaign controversialize the announcement as a partisan act.
