Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on Sunday that FBI Director James Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, barring political activity by federal employees, through a late election season letter to Congress about the scope of the bureau's probe of Hillary Clintons private email service as secretary of state.
Comeys letter on Friday to congressional committee chairs said the FBI is reviewing newly discovered emails that might be linked to Clinton's private server. The new emails were found several weeks ago, law enforcement officials told CNN Sunday, but the FBI did not disclose them until Friday. The timing raises questions about why the information was released just days before the election. [ ]
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Reid said that by releasing this information, which he says is not conclusive or pertinent, Comey may have broken the law. Reid referenced a memo from Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates from March of this year that establishes all Justice Department employees, including Comey, are subject to the Hatch Act.

Ha ha ha! Shall we examine all the things Reid’s done?
What acts has Reid violated?
Harry, you one-eyed freak, criminal prosecutions are not political prosecutions.
You remain an asshat.
Desperation City, Harry
There’s your green light, Comey, to reveal what really happened to Dingy’s face
Harry Reid has violated humanity. FOAD Dingy.
You're an admitted liar, Harry...and proud of it.
I’m not going to miss that hate filled, bitter little bastard.
But Lawrence Walsh didn’t in 1992.... RIIIIIGHT Harry?
Harry the ‘Asshat’ Act.
would it have been a violation had it been against bush? or would he have done everything in his power to encourage and facilitate it?
Supose people that live by the dirty trick find it easy to suspect the same behavior in others.
What difference does it make?
Reid is such a fool he doesn’t even understand what the Hatch Act prohibits
Shut up Harry. You and your ilk have turned America into a country of lawlessness. Take your Hatch Act and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
Was Huma a spy?
The idea of a mafia bagman like harry accusing somebody else of breaking the law is an insult.
