President Obama criticized FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation Wednesday, despite his insistence that he does not comment on federal investigations.
During a rally in Chapel Hill, N.C., Obama said the “fate of the world is teetering” on the presidential election, the New York Times reports.
“We don’t operate on incomplete information,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with NowThis News. “We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”
Obama suggested the FBI violated its own guidelines by peddling innuendo in a letter to Congress last week.
Obama said he trusts Clinton.
“I know her. And I wouldn’t be supporting her if I didn’t have absolute confidence in her integrity.”
