Ex-Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook Hits Comey Over New Book: Wish He Had ‘Reflected A Bit More Deeply’

Former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook isn’t completely satisfied with former FBI director James Comey‘s response to his actions in October 2016 regarding the Clinton email probe.

“I wish that Mr. Comey reflected a little bit more deeply and maybe called what he did a mistake because I think it was,” Mook told CNN’s John Berman. “Particularly because he talked so much about how important it is to follow the rules and follow the law, there were really clear rules in place that he shouldn’t have done what he did and he chose to break them. And, apparently did that based on politics.”

“So what matters is the lesson is out there, I hope it is learned,” Mook continued. “I hope that people at the FBI internalize that and I’m glad it is in the book.”

When Berman asked how seeing Comey’s comments made him feel, Mook said: “I’m not angry. I’m not bitter. Because there is nothing we can do to change the past. We have to focus on the future.”

“Frankly there is so much else in that book, so much else swirling outside, I’m a little more concerned for the country than worried about 2016,” he added.
