Practiced smear merchant Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), whose disgraceful political career will come to a blessed end upon his impending retirement, is characteristically sliming his way to the finish line.
Reid has accused FBI Director James Comey of suppressing damaging information about Donald Trump ahead of next week’s election. “It has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors and the Russian government,” Reid wrote in an acerbic letter to Comey. His evidence? Unspecified “communications” with unnamed officials.
Reid wields precisely zero credibility in leveling this allegation. Four years ago, reportedly with the blessing of the Obama campaign, Reid repeatedly stoked speculation that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had avoided paying taxes.
“The word’s out” that Romney “hasn’t paid any taxes for 10 years,” Reid claimed, citing unnamed sources in support of his utterly baseless charge. Sound familiar?
