In an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju on Monday morning, outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid blamed “partisan” FBI Director James Comey for Hillary Clinton’s electoral defeat in November. “Russia helped a lot. Those WikiLeaks coming out – drip, drip, drip – hurt her, and Comey helped Trump significantly.”
Reid claimed that he wrote a letter to Comey about Russian hacking in August, but complained that Comey did not have “the decency, the courtesy to even respond to my letter.” Reid was upset that he received a reply from the Government Affairs department of the FBI, claiming whoever wrote it “probably doesn’t know his way down to the Capitol.”
Reid then asserted that the FBI did not look into allegations of Russian attempts to influence the presidential election, only offering the evidence that he believed Comey to be a “partisan.” Reid criticized Comey for reopening the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Reid then tried to tie the Trump campaign, but Raju asked him to cite specific evidence. Unable to, Reid said: “Well I can’t respond to a specific single item, but they were all over.”
