Comey, a day after he disclosed that his agency was looking into a potential new batch of messages from her private email server. Treating Mr. Comey as a threat to her candidacy, Mrs. Clinton took aim at the law enforcement officer who had recommended no criminal charges less than four months earlier for her handling of classified information as secretary of state. “It’s pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election,” Mrs. Clinton said at a rally in Daytona Beach, Fla. “In fact, it’s not just strange; it’s unprecedented and it is deeply troubling.” CONTINUE

Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) is calling on FBI Director James Comey to resign. According to WREG, Rep. Cohen wrote: FBI Director James Comey’s recent public comments about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her emails, apparently before seeing any evidence, and against the advice of the Justice Department according to press reports, and even, some have suggested, in violation of the Hatch Act, make it clear that for the good of the FBI and the Justice Department, he should resign his position effective immediately. Cohen lambasted Comey for announcing that the FBI is investigating new emails from Hillary Clinton’s case so close to the election. CONTINUE
