Joe Scarborough: FBI 'Sullied' by Comey on Hillary Emails

MSNBC's "Morning Joe"

By    |   Tuesday, 06 Sep 2016 03:19 PM

The FBI has been "sullied" by Director Jim Comey's decision Friday to release a comprehensive report concerning the agency's questioning of Hillary Clinton on Friday, and the Democratic presidential nominee was never going to be indicted on charges concerning her use of a private email server, anyway, an exasperated Joe Scarborough said on his MSNBC program Tuesday morning.

"The FBI got it wrong going both ways," the former congressman said on his "Morning Joe" program. "I think the FBI was shoddy in their process. I think they left too many things up in the air. It was political. They were never going to indict Hillary Clinton."

And if she wasn't going to face indictment, Comey should "treat Hillary Clinton like every other American and shut your mouth," but he didn't do that, said Scarborough.

"You know why?" he continued. "Because he wasn't going to do it in an election year. He made his bed. He should sleep in it instead of continuing to leak this out."

As a result, "the FBI is sullied by this," said Scarborough. "Anybody who reads these pages, they are sullied by a shoddy, shoddy [investigation.] What are they going to do? Keep dribbling it out because Jim Comey feels bad about himself?"

The interview itself was "pathetic," said Scarborough.

"They interviewed Hillary on the Saturday of Fourth of July weekend to kill that story," he said. "They released these FBI notes on Labor Day weekend. The interview was so pathetic, they had Cheryl Mills, they had her lawyers in, who were also the principals in destroying the documents, in deciding what documents to shred and destroy. It is unbelievable."

By having Mills and other potential principals there, he continued, "if they found something in Hillary Clinton's interview that makes it possible for them to indict her or other people on her staff, they have the key players sitting there listening to the system while she is being interviewed? It never happens ... find a prosecutor, find a prosecutor anywhere in America that will come on television today and tell you that they will allow principals to an investigation to sit in on another principal's investigation."

The FBI also failed to follow up on many facts that were uncovered during the questioning, including about missing laptops and BlackBerrys that had been destroyed with a hammer," he said.
