- The criticism in the United States by FBI Director James Comey swells further. Among others, former Attorney General Eric Holder and some Republicans believe that Comey with his letter about Hillary Clinton email scandal last week has affected the elections.
Holder stressed Monday in an opinion piece that the Ministry of Justice guidelines on how and when to report on ongoing investigations. ' The ministry talking normally about ongoing investigations. Indeed, only in exceptional cases anyway recognizes whether there is an investigation, '' writes Holder.
' It is the ministry also policy not to take any steps just before election day that could influence the outcome, '' Holder continues. ' Director Comey has violated these fundamental principles. '' Holder calls Comey to the confusion he caused to brighten.
