Trying to avoid politics, FBI Director Comey instead shaped an election

The FBI director, fearing the backlash that would come if it were revealed after the election that the agency had been investigating Hillary Clinton and had kept it a secret, sent a letter informing Congress that the case was reopened. What he did not say was that the FBI was also investigating the Trump campaign. While partisanship was not a factor in Comey’s approach to the two investigations, he handled them in starkly different ways.
