‘I’ve never attacked Mr. Comey for trying to do something that was for a partisan reason’

Ex-Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta Goes After Comey: ‘Arrogance’ Led Him to Make a ‘Very Bad Error’ (Mediaite)

Hillary Clinton‘s former Campaign Chair John Podesta isn’t over Clinton’s 2016 election loss. And not surprisingly, he’s pinning the blame on former FBI Director James Comey.

“I’ve never attacked Mr. Comey for trying to do something that was for a partisan reason,” Podesta said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, referring to Comey’s infamous investigation of Clinton’s emails. “I think it was, to some extent, his arrogance that led him to make a very bad error of judgment.”

Podesta emphasized the impact he felt was suffered by the Clinton campaign, adding that Comey “was an idiot in the context of this election and it was influential in the outcome, and now we have someone who, as he said, is morally unfit to be president of the United States.”
