The FBI is not sold on the idea that Russia had a particular aim in its meddling.

If anything, they just want leverage. Like any decent super-power.

Harry Reid calls on FBI Director Comey to resign over CIA Russian hacking report

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Saturday called on FBI Director James Comey to resign, further referring to the embattled FBI leader as “J. Edgar Hoover.”

Hoover served as FBI director from 1924 until his death in 1972. According to Biography.com, Hoover “ordered illegal surveillance against suspected enemies of the state and political opponents” during his tenure at the bureau.

Reid, who is retiring after serving more than three decades in Congress, compared Comey’s recent actions related to the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server to the “illegal” behavior of Hoover.
The latest development comes just hours after a report surfaced that alleges sources closely connected to the Russian government provided WikiLeaks with hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee because it wanted to improve President-elect Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, however, last month denied (https://www.rt.com/news/365164-assange-interview-wikileaks-russia/) that the emails came from the Russian government.

“I am so disappointed in Comey. He has let the country down for partisan purposes. That’s why I call him J. Edgar Hoover. Because I believe that,” Reid told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Saturday.
