Tim Kaine: FBI ‘actively working’ to support Trump

  |   World News

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) suggested Saturday that some officials at the FBI are “actively working” to support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Kaine, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate, made the claim during an interview with Fusion, a Miami-based television network targeting bicultural millennials. The comments mark an escalation in the Clinton campaign's response to the FBI's renewed inquiry into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she served as secretary of state. Kaine called the FBI a “leaky sieve” and accused Director James B. Comey of breaking agency protocol by discussing a politically sensitive case so close to an election. He also dismissed former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani’s decision to back off claims that he, Giuliani, had been given advance notice of the FBI's plans to possibly reopen the Clinton investigation.
