Disgruntled Podesta: The FBI has Become a ‘Cover Your Ass Organization’

Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta once again blamed the FBI and FBI Director James Comey for Hillary Clinton’s spectacular 2016 election loss, calling the Bureau a “cover your ass organization.”

Podesta criticized Comey for not signing onto a letter saying that the Russians attempted to hack to 2016 election in an effort to sway the results toward Donald Trump. “And yet [Comey] turned around and eleven days before the election… ended up dropping this bombshell in the middle of the election against the advice of the Justice Department, against the long term practice of Democratic and Republican administrations, highly criticized by both Democrats and Republicans for that step,” Podesta said.

Podesta identified two motivations in the FBI for allegedly sabotaging Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“There are forces within the FBI that wanted her to lose,” Podesta said, implying the letter was an effort to elect Donald Trump.

Comey also moved against Clinton in order to satisfy discontent subordinates, said Podesta, calling the FBI, a “cover-your-ass organization.”
