Sen. Harry Reid, minority leader in the Senate, is taking aim at several targets as he prepares to retire from his position.
His targets in recent speeches have included Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Nevada House candidate Jesse Sbaih, Rep. Alan Grayson, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, according to Politico.
"He may have violated the law," Reid said about Trump's call for Russia to find Hillary Clinton's deleted emails. "He can have intelligence briefings, but I hope they are fake," the Nevada Democrat said.
When speaking to his delegation, Sbaih claimed
Reid didn't support him because he was Muslim.
"I have no respect for Jesse Sbaih. I'm glad he lost and I hope I had something to do with it," Reid said.
He angered one delegate who asked him to say "yes or no" about supporting the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.
Reid indicated that he did not support the deal, but the angered delegate said she "will not be dissed," and was told to leave.
In a press conference, Reid mentioned Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson,
who remains in his race amid allegations of domestic abuse.
"He has lost support even from the liberal groups," Reid said, adding, "He's an absolute fraud."
The Senate minority leader also commented on the Democratic National Committee's email scandal over support for Bernie Sanders in The Huffington Post.
"It wasn't right to treat him that way," he said.
Politico reported that Reid's comment about giving Trump fake intelligence briefings earned him a rebuke from Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, who said, "The system of government Harry Reid is advocating — where the intelligence apparatus provides disinformation to one party and actively supports another — does indeed exist: in Putin's Russia, not the United States."
