Bernie Sanders: ‘Would Not Be a Bad Thing’ If Comey Resigned

Senator Bernie Sanders today on ABC suggested that maybe it’s time for FBI Director James Comey to step down.

He said, “Comey acted in an outrageous way during the campaign.”

Now, Sanders acknowledged he couldn’t say for sure that Comey’s actions helped Donald Trump win, but that they were clearly “unacceptable.”

George Stephanopoulos asked if Comey should step down.

Sanders responded, “I think he should take a hard look at what he has done, and I think it would not be a bad thing for the American people if he did step down.”
