McCaskill: Comey ‘Blunted’ Hillary Clinton’s Momentum

Friday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” while discussing the FBI reopening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said FBI Director James Comey’s letter to congress “blunted some of Hillary Clinton’s momentum.”

McCaskill said, “I certainly think what he did was unprecedented and outrageous. I certainly think what he did damaged the law enforcement of this country. I certainly think it changed a little bit of the momentum in the race. I think it blunted some of Hillary Clinton’s momentum. I don’t think it changed the fundamentals of who is fit to be president, who we want to be a role model for our children and who is really not prepared to be president. I think those fundamentals are still in place. The margin—he may have impacted of the margin. I feel optimistic the American people are going to make the right choice.”
