Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign manager says President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey is “wrong.”
“I have a big bone to pick with James Comey, OK?” Robby Mook said on CNN Tuesday. “I thought the way he handled the investigation on Secretary Clinton’s emails last year was poorly done.”
“However, what happened today was wrong. And it was wrong because no one in our country, particularly the president of the United States, should be above the law.”
Mook added that Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions are “potentially implicated” in the FBI’s probe of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 race.
“And as we’ve heard from this panel, the questions are now gushing out about whether this investigation was closing in on the president and this was his way of closing it down.”
