Sen. Bernie Sanders(D-Vermont) called out FBI Director James Comey on Sunday During an interview on ABC’s This Week. Sanders said the way Comey handled Hillary Clinton’s email during the election “outrageous.”
During the interview, Sanders pointed out at the idea that Comey should “step down” from his position for his unacceptable behavior during the Presidential campaign.
Sanders said, “I think that Comey acted in an outrageous way during the campaign. No one can say that this was the decisive and this was what elected [Donald] Trump, but clearly his behavior during the campaign in terms of what he said in the week or two before the election was unacceptable.”
Sanders along with other Democrats have expressed their anger over the way Comey handled Russia’s attack on the DNC. Now that U.S. intelligence is working on the Trump-Russia investigation Sanders believes that Comey should not take part of the investigation.
“I think he should take a hard look at what he has done,” Sanders said. “And I think it would not be a bad thing for the American people if he did step down.”
