Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), a frequent critic of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, said it was “wrong & unfair” for FBI Director James Comey to write a letter to Congress about newly discovered emails pertaining to Clinton so close to Election Day.
Walsh laid out the criticism of Comey in a series of tweets Sunday night:
Walsh is no fan of Clinton, having just days ago encouraged protests and acts of civil disobedience “to get our country back” if Clinton wins the presidency.
“On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket,” he tweeted.
Comey’s move has prompted criticism from people on both sides of the aisle as well as government officials and former prosecutors. Many have called for Comey to release more information, including whether he’s even seen the emails in question, which came from a computer owned by former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) ― who is currently under investigation for allegedly sexting with a minor ― and his estranged wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
