Scarborough: ‘The FBI Is Putting the Clinton Campaign in a No-Win Position’

Friday on MSNBC while discussing the Federal Bureau of Investigat-on’s reopening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private unsecured email server during her tenure as secretary of state, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said, “The FBI is putting the Clinton campaign in a no-win position right now by dropping this 11 days before the election.”

Scarborough said, “We are in a political fog right now, sort of a fog of political war. We  really don’t know what James Comey knows. The one thing that Brian and Kellyanne know is there has to be transparency. I really—when you listen to Brian Fallon’s words that this is the worst of all possible worlds for Hillary Clinton, it’s the truth. The FBI is putting the Clinton campaign in a no-win position right now by dropping this 11 days before the election. This has to be one of the biggest October surprises in the last 50 years.”

He continued, “It also raises again the question of James Comey’s leadership at the FBI, delivering a long scathing statement deciding not to indict Hillary Clinton. Over half of Americans believe Hillary Clinton should have been indicted and believe that James Comey cut her a special break. Then you have James Comey, after he decides not to indict her, making an unprecedented statement. You either indict or don’t indict. That’s what he looked like he was doing in July. He had his testimony saying that she wasn’t honest and trustworthy and you had his decisions go at Cheryl Mills in her testimony. You have the decision 11 days before the election. It really is confounding. if James Comey does not — if it proves there are not significant emails in here that would change the case, it’s hard to believe there is something that would alter the outcome of the case. We just don’t know. There needs to be transparency. Unless there is some major game changer in these emails, you have to wonder why James decided to weigh in 11 days before everyone goes to the polls.”
