Unlike fired FBI Director James Comey's announcements amid the 2016 presidential election, we will not hear from government officials about the reported investigations of Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum until after midterms, former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax TV.
"The bottom line is the FBI, DOJ, and other agencies don't want to have any impact on the election, naturally," Kerik told Monday's "America Talks Live." "So, they've gone completely dark and silent.
"After the election we may find out exactly what's going on."

Short of hearing about the investigations of potential public corruption, Kerik advised Florida voters to look at Gillum's record as mayor of Tallahassee.
"Tallahassee's record on crime, violent crime, murder, is atrocious," Kerik told host John Cardillo. "This is typical of Democratic leadership, Democratic oversight in a city, just like we had in New York City prior to [former Mayor Rudy] Giuliani."
Crime and taxes should be two key concerns for Florida voters, Kerik added.
"So, for people in Florida, there's two things I would be concerned with: 1. This is a guy who could not manage his own city," he said. "He could not reduce crime. He could not reduce the murder rates.
"But, also, [2.] this is a guy who wants to raise taxes. Taxes, taxes, taxes – people have flocked to Florida to get away from higher taxes in New Jersey and New York and other places.
"And now, this guy is going to flip that."
