MSNBC’s Brzezinski: Dem Criticism of Comey Reinforcing Idea ‘There’s Something There’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brezinski asked Sen. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) if the Democrats attacking FBI Director James Comey for reopening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton makes it seem like “there’s something there.”

Brezinski said,  “You’re a former prosecutor. I’m scared you’re going to bite my head off, but you know what, if you do, that’s great. I want you to be right here. But you’re a former prosecutor. You said that Comey should not have opened his mouth. A lot of people are saying that, and that he broke every protocol and went off the reservation. The only thing that that makes me think is that you’re actually re-enforcing the premise that there’s something there because this is a man of great integrity, according to everybody who works for Hillary Clinton on down. He’s not partisan. You look at his role in the Ashcroft story years ago, yet he broke protocol. Doesn’t it lead you to believe that maybe there’s a problem?”
