Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake: FBI Director Comey Acted With a ‘Trump-esque Recklessness’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing the FBI reopening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private unsecured email server, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said FBI Director James Comey “acted under pressure that is really Trump-esque recklessness” and pointed out the proximity to the general election.

Rawlings-Blake said, “I talked to our chair, Donna Brazile, and she said she felt like she was hit by a Mack truck understandably. I think Director Comey owes the American public more. This is crazy that you would come with this type of letter to congressional members and to your staff and not have anything to back it up. We have one person saying, well it’s clear that the FBI believes this, or it’s clear that. Nothing is clear. The only thing that’s clear is that he’s under pressure and he got shook. He acted under pressure that is really Trump-esque recklessness to do something like this nine days out, or 11 days out and not have anything to back it up.”
