Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid slammed FBI Director James B. Comey for notifying Congress of an investigation into emails that may be related to Hillary Clinton’s private server.

Reid, a Democrat, said Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits the use of government resources for political purposes, Reid wrote in a letter to Comey.

Reid also accused Comey of refusing to disclose potential ties between Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.

“The clear double standard established by your actions strongly suggests that your highly selective approach to publicizing information, along with your timing, was intended for the success or failure of a partisan candidate or political group,” Reid wrote.
