Democratic Senator On Comey's Email Announcement: It Was An 'October Betrayal'?

Outgoing California Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was not happy with FBI Director James Comey’s decision to inform Congress and the public about the bureau’s decision to review some 650,000 emails obtained through Anthony Weiner’s laptop. Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, reportedly shared the device, leading to Clinton-related emails being found in a separate investigation into the former congressman’s online interaction with an underage girl. Boxer described the bombshell announcement last Friday as an “October betrayal” in her interview with Andrea Mitchell (via Free Beacon):

Well, I think that’s just plain wrong,” Boxer said. “Mr. Comey, who Democrats supported when he came in, he has a wonderful record in the past. [He] has really not just leveled an October surprise, I call it an October betrayal of long-standing FBI protocol and Department of Justice protocol that you don’t weigh in with something like this a few days away from an election.”

She then touched on Harry Reid’s crazy assertion that the FBI has evidence that Donald Trump has ties to the Russian government, claiming the refusal to not release that phantom information is unfair.

For the record, there is zero evidence that Trump has ties to Russia, or was behind the recent hack into John Podesta’s emails, who serves as Clinton campaign chair. Moreover, it's not unprecedented. The Clinton/Gore '92 campaign was all to eager to use an indictment against the late former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger to discredit Bush 41's presidency four days before Election Day; the indictment was thrown out in December of 1992.
