Last week, the FBI announced that it’s reviewing its investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails. The announcement came after the FBI discovered emails during an ongoing investigation of Anthony Weiner, a former New York congressman, for sending text messages to an underage girl (Huma Abedin, a top Clinton aide, is Weiner’s ex-wife).
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid claims FBI Director James Comey might have broken a federal law that prohibits federal officials from using their authority to influence an election.
"Your actions in recent months have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information, with what appears to be a clear intent to aid one political party over another. I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law," Reid wrote in a letter to Comey.
Janet Napolitano, former U.S. attorney, Arizona attorney general and U.S. secretary of Homeland Security, and attorney general Loretta Lynch, among other officials, also disagreed with Comey's decision to tell Congress about Clinton's emails so close to the election.
The Clinton campaign has urged Comey to provide more details about the FBI's review of the recently discovered emails, claiming that the news is fueling conspiracy theories that might hurt the Democratic nominee before the presidential election.
