Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey on Sunday charging that Comey may have violated a federal law that bars federal officials from using their authority to influence an election.
Reid, D-Nev., clearly implied that Comey is trying to help Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton.
“Your actions in recent months have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information, with what appears to be a clear intent to aid one political party over another,” Reid wrote. “I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
