On Sunday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta appeared on ABC’s This Week to discuss the final days of the 2016 election.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Podesta if he believed the FBI was trying to influence the election – a concern that Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine has expressed.
In a recent interview with Fusion’s Alicia Menendez, Kaine expressed his concern about FBI Director Comey.
“He knew that the FBI was not only a leaky sieve, but there were people within the FBI actively working ― actively working ― to try to help the Trump campaign,” Kaine said.
“I’m not challenging Mr. Comey’s motivation. But I do think it was unwarranted,” Podesta told Stephanopoulos. “It was a mistake, and I think that Republican and Democratic former Justice Department officials have come out and questioned the move that he made and with respect to the leaks that have gone on throughout the week.”
Podesta’s comments mark a notable split from what the vice presidential nominee said earlier this week.
