The Hillary Clinton campaign is going after James Comey hard after the FBI director re-opened the investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
Clinton tweeted a passage Monday from a CNBC article that questioned Comey’s judgment on re-opening the Clinton case, considering his announcement’s proximity to the election. Comey was reportedly hesistant to name Russia as allegedly being responsible for election-season hacks on such targets as the Democratic National Committee.
Clinton is directing harsh criticism on the sitting Obama administration official.

Hillary Clinton supporters recently booed Comey at a rally. Breitbart News reported:
Clinton smiled and nodded in reaction, raising doubts about the motivation behind the renewed investigation.
“Well, if you’re like me, you probably have a few questions about it,” she said. “It is pretty strange. It’s pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. In fact, it’s not just strange, it’s unprecedented and it is deeply troubling.”
Clinton said that voters deserved all the facts about the investigation, and called for Comey to release more information.
She also accused her opponent Donald Trump of using the news to lie about her.
“Of course Donald Trump is already making up lies about this,” she said, as the crowd booed. “He is doing his best to confuse, mislead and discourage the American people.”
