Clinton campaign accuses FBI director of ‘double standard’ in email probe

  |   World News

Top aides for Hillary Clinton on Monday accused FBI Director James Comey of a “double standard” in his handling of the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook called on Comey to explain why he rushed to disclose new information about the status of the investigation into Clinton, while reportedly opposing, on the grounds that it would be too close to the election, a public statement by the FBI that the Russian government was seeking the influence the presidential race. “It is impossible to view this as anything less than a blatant double standard,” Mook said. Democrats are reeling from the news late last week that — a little more than a week before the election -- Comey is revisiting his probe into the potential mishandling of classified material.
