Harry Reid has done too much boxing without headgear.

The outgoing Senate Minority Leader declared Monday that FBI Director James Comey “singlehandedly” cost Hillary Clinton the election by announcing that his agency was reopening its investigation into Clinton’s emails:

Reid at first resisted the idea that Comey by himself tipped the election, but then said that does appear to be the case.

“I’ll say singlehandedly, had he not written that letter a week or so before the election, she would have won and we would have picked up two more Senate seats,” he told CNN.

“Comey helped Trump significantly,” Reid explained. “A week before the election, he came out with this, ‘oh, we’ve found some more emails,’ and as a result of that we lost Senate seats, and I think we lost the presidency.”

Reid also claimed that Comey flat-out ignored information about a Russian hack of the DNC because he’s “partisan”:

“I thought it was important to put the FBI on notice, do something about it. I wrote in August and the FBI director didn’t have the decency, the courtesy to even respond to my letter,” Reid said. Instead, Reid got a reply from someone in the office of Governmental Affairs, which said they were looking into it.

“They looked into nothing,” Reid said. “It’s obvious [Comey] was a partisan in all this … It’s obvious. There’s information out there. He had it, I’m confident, and he ignored it.”

Typical liberal, blaming everyone else for his party’s own shortcomings.
