Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano suggested on Monday that there should be a wave of resignations at the FBI following the election — with the “most important” coming from Director James Comey.
Napolitano’s remarks came one day after Comey once again inserted himself into the presidential race by stating that the FBI had found no reason to continue its investigation of Hillary Clinton. Just days before, Comey had said that the case was ongoing because new emails related to the case had been found on Anthony Weiner’s computer.
“The FBI has to stay out of politics,” Napolitano said on Fox Business News. “Eight months ago, James Comey had the best reputation for integrity amongst major law enforcement leaders in the United States of America. Today, he’s being mocked as J. Edgar Comey, to connote his most infamous predecessor, precisely because he has allowed the FBI to enter itself into a political race.”
Napolitano pointed out that Rudy Giuliani had admitted that FBI agents leaked to him.
“The FBI shouldn’t be leaking, they shouldn’t be taking sides,” he argued. “They should be the pristine neutral law enforcement entity of high fidelity to the Constitution that we all grew up thinking they were.”
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo wondered if there would be “massive resignations at the FBI.”
“I think the most important one will be his,” Napolitano said of Comey. “How could he serve under Hillary Clinton or under Donald Trump?”
