Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom blasted the bureau’s Director James Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, saying the alleged “quid pro quo” deal with the State Department appears on the surface to be illegal.
James Kallstrom responded to an FBI agent’s acknowledgment that he offered to declassify an email in exchange for opening two spots for the bureau at the Baghdad embassy.
“I don’t know enough about the actual deal, but it certainly looks like on paper, you know, something that’s actually a federal crime,” Kallstrom told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
Kallstrom then criticized Comey, saying he made the FBI look bad.
“He’s [James Comey] let down the citizens of this country in my view, he’s let down the FBI, he’s thrown all the agents under the bus,” Kallstrom said.
