Kaine: Comey’s Conduct During Election ‘Will Go Down As Probably the Lowest Moment’ in FBI History Next to MLK Wiretap

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” former Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) argued that FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during the 2016 election “will go down as probably the lowest moment in the history of the FBI, probably next to the decision of J. Edgar Hoover to wiretap Martin Luther King.”

Kaine said that Comey “broke the FBI rules with respect to the Clinton campaign, and he chose not to break the rules with respect to the Trump campaign. … I think it will go down as probably the lowest moment in the history of the FBI, probably next to the decision of J. Edgar Hoover to wiretap Martin Luther King. And it’s — it was unfortunate.”
