Just days after Democrats were tying Republican candidates to Donald Trump’s hot mic moment, Republicans in contested races are seizing FBI Director James B. Comey’s revelation about possible new evidence in the Hillary Clinton email investigation to attack their Democratic opponents.
Comey announced last Friday the discovery of emails pertaining to the investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of State. He has since been pummeled by Democrats, concerned that his unusual move could influence the election.
