Rep. Schiff: I Think Comey Caused the Same Damage to the FBI that He Was Hoping to Avoid

‘Dragging the bureau into a political contest, is exactly what he did’


SCHIFF: "But then he was forced really to acknowledge that they had reopened the Clinton investigation so then you had an open Clinton investigation and an open Trump investigation at that point in October. The Trump investigation was at no longer an early stage. It opened in July and it was now October. These are distinctions I think without a difference, and the principal impact was to talk about one right on the eve of the election and to not talk about the other had a very disparate impact on the election. And I think the whole impact that he was hoping to avoid, that is dragging the bureau into a political contest, is exactly what he did."
