Yeah, sure. You just knew liberals would cry foul at the reopening of the Clinton email investigation, but accusing Comey of breaking the law is more than a little over the top.
Newsmax had this to say:
FBI Director James Comey’s actions announcing that his office was reviewing additional emails related to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of government information 11 days before the presidential election may have violated a federal law, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said according to a report published Sunday.
“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act,” Reid wrote in a letter he was preparing to send to Comey according to The Wall Street Journal. “Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
Apparently Reid thinks performing investigative duties under the authority of the Department of Justice is now a political act. Nope, don’t think so.
The Hatch Act is a federal law passed in 1939 which “limits certain political activities of federal employees, as well as some state, D.C., and local government employees who work in connection with federally funded programs.
Nice try, Harry!
