Reid's brilliant letter to Comey
Democratic Senate leader Reid sent a letter to FBI Director Comey accusing him of violating The Hatch Act, which prohibits employees of the Executive Branch in the US from engaging in political activities. Reid also said that Comey is privy to information on Trump's ties to Russia but did not issue a public statement on that, supporting his political motivation releasing a statement on new emails. Reid's letter thus forces Comey to either accept he has such knowledge of Trump's Russian associations or admit that if he did so he would be violating The Hatch Act. Rock and a hard place.
