Fmr. Clinton Spox: The FBI Director Wasn’t Motivated By Partisan Bias

The Justice Department’s Inspector General announced they would review FBI Director James Comey’s actions, along with other members of the FBI and Justice Department officials in advance of the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon appeared on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports to discuss these developments.

Mitchell asked Fallon if he thought FBI Director James Comey should step down, a move called for by the Wall Street Journal editorial board.

“I don’t think that’s my place to say, so I’m not going to join the call of the Wall Street Journal editorial board today,” Fallon told Mitchell. “I do think that Director Comey’s actions were inappropriate. I don’t think he was motivated by partisan bias.”

“I just think that he was faced with a tricky situation, and … I think he was trying to please both sides and so he acted inappropriately,” Fallon added.
