You now it’s bad when…
MSNBC anchor and commentator Andrea Mitchell (second only to John Harwood in the media pecking order of suck-up-iness to Clinton) is forced to admit: “This is the just worst possible situation for the FBI for the country, for Hillary Clinton certainly.”
“For Hillary Clinton to go nuclear on Comey yesterday was a deliberate decision. They’re trying to rally the base. And she did this in Daytona. She did this going then to an historically African-American college and had a huge rally there on the football field.”
“She’s really now taking this to Comey.“
“And they made a deliberate decision to do this. If she’s elected, she has to live with James Comey who has a ten-year term. That is a very hostile situation and a dangerous situation. Let me point out, John Kerry in Ireland said he has not been notified. Comey did not know what these emails were and whether they were work-related.That is the question that is raising so many concerns.”

Of course, it’s not just the media, Democrats have blasted Comey for making the announcement less than two weeks before Election Day, with Senate minority leader Harry Reid claiming Comey may have violated federal law…
“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act,” Reid wrote in a letter to Comey, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Hatch act prohibits government officials from using their positions to influence an election.
“Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
“When Republicans filibustered your nomination and delayed your confirmation longer than any previous nominee to your position, I led the fight to get you confirmed because I believed you to be a principled public servant,” Reid wrote.
“With the deepest regret, I now see that I was wrong.”

Which is esecially ironic as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was so full of priase just 3 months ago… calling Comey, a former George W. Bush administration official, as “a great man” that Americans “are very privileged” to have leading the federal agency.
Forward to 6:45…
But we conclude with the utter desperation of the Democrats to distract (through lies and obfuscation) once again via Harry Reid…
