"Libertarian [Party] vice presidential nominee William Weld lit into James Comey, saying Monday that his decision to announce a review of new emails was 'disgraceful' ... 'They're totally off the reservation,' Weld told CNN's Alisyn Camerota Monday on 'New Day,' adding that the US Attorney General may need to get involved to rein in Comey. Weld was the head of the Justice Department's criminal justice division during the final years of Ronald Reagan's tenure and said throughout the interview that his criticism of Comey's conduct was a professional critique, not political." [editor's note: Unmentioned is that Weld, possibly the Libertarian Party's biggest mistake of all time, got promoted to DoJ criminal justice head as a reward for stonewalling the Senate's investigation of the Iran-Contra ring when he was a US attorney; covering criminal politicians' asses seems to be his avocation - TLK] (10/31/16)

    “covering criminal politicians’ asses seems to be his avocation”

    For “avocation” , read “occupation” and you will have defined the job description of the US attorney general!

    RE: editor’s note. Increasingly clear that Weld has pivoted to rain dancing for ML Strategies re: prospective future business with the Clinton Administration. “Ass coverer” assigns too noble of motivations…

    • I suppose that may be why he’s doing what he’s doing, but I don’t think so. I think it’s more personal and that he’s expecting a Clinton administration appointment.
