For starters, the Clinton alumni association isn’t letting go of any grudges. “He should’ve been fired by Barack Obama … not by President Trump,” says Lanny Davis, who served as special counsel to former President Bill Clinton, in an interview promoting his own book, which blames Comey for costing Clinton the presidency. (No, really. Its subtitle is “How FBI Director James Comey Cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency.”)
He added, “It’s about I, I, I, I [with Comey]. It’s only about James Comey. He should’ve been fired.”
Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, John Podesta, had similar criticism this week.
“To some extent it was his arrogance that led him to make a very bad error of judgment,” he said of Comey’s decision to reopen the Clinton email investigation. “I thought he was an idiot in the context of this election and that it was influential in the outcome, and now we have someone who, as he said, is morally unfit to be the president of the United States.”
