With just two days left until the election, John Podesta went on one of the Clinton campaign's "friendly" political talk shows to bash FBI agents leaking harmful info about their various investigations into Hillary's assorted criminal cases. In an interview that wreaked of a little desperation, Podesta lashed out at FBI agents saying "the leakers should shut up." With the interview occurring earlier this morning before the recent news that the FBI has balked, yet again, at bringing official charges against Hillary, it certainly seems possible that Podesta had advanced knowlege that a Comey announcement was forthcoming (see "Hillary Cleared As FBI Folds Again: Comey Says "Conclusions Unchanged From July" On Clinton Email Review").
I think what Mr. Comey did just 9 days ago was a mistake. I think it broke with precedent. I think it was criticized roundly by democrats and republicans. It was a mistake.
There is a reason for that policy. It looked like it was interfering in the election.
I think the men and women of the FBI are doing a tremendous job out here across the country. But the leakers should shut up.
