Harry Reid: Jim Comey And Vladimir Putin Conspired To Make Donald Trump President (RealClearPolitics)

In an interview with CNN's Manu Raju, outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid says that he blames FBI Director Jim Comey and Russian President Vladimir Putin for working together to make Donald Trump the president. 

He noted that he does not have any information from classified briefings that has not appeared in the press. He blamed Russian hackers, WikiLeaks and FBI Director Jim Comey for not investigating the former. "It is obvious he was a partisan in all of this," Reid said about Comey. 

"We know from reports we have seen from all of you guys," he said to CNN's Manu Raju, "reports that people in the campaign for Donald Trump were in touch with the Russians. And now it is very clear."
