Washington – Calling the move “highly unusual,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal today weighed in on FBI Director Patrick Comey’s decision to tell Congress that his agency may have found more emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server.
While stepping back from demanding Comey’s resignation, as some Democrats have done, Blumenthal said Comey has a lot of explaining to do about his “cryptic” comments.
“As a former federal prosecutor and state attorney general, I believe there is serious reason for concern regarding Director Comey’s cryptic comments and hope that more facts will be disclosed as quickly as possible,” Blumenthal said in a statement. “Such actions are highly unusual and urgently require explanation.”
Comey rocked the race for the White House last week when he said emails pertinent to the closed investigation into Clinton’s email server were discovered on a computer belonging to former congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
