'Comey acted in an outrageous way during the campaign': Bernie suggests FBI director should resign

Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested FBI Director James Comey should resign over how he conducted the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.

"He should take a hard look at what he has done. And I think it would not be a bad thing for the American people if he did step down," Sanders told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

Sanders argued that Comey was wrong to publicize the new evidence about Clinton about a week before the general election in November, only to announce days later that it did not change the department's previous decision not to charge the former secretary of state for mishandling classified information.

"Comey acted in an outrageous way during the campaign," Sanders said. "No one can say that this was the decisive and this was what elected Trump, but clearly his behavior during the campaign in terms of what he said in the week or two before the election was unacceptable. And it is interesting that he is not doing investigations about the possible ties between Trump's campaign and the Russians."

Sanders comments came just days after the FBI's independent internal watchdog, the Office of the Inspector General, announced it would review Comey's actions and rule whether there was misconduct in the way the department handled Clinton's email investigation.


It's been time for Comey to go.

1. I disagree. I think he should go to prison, not be allowed to resign.
