AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders on FBI Letter to Congressional Chairmen

Washington, D.C. — 

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement regarding the letter issued by FBI Director James Comey to eight congressional committee chairs:

"I've learned two things traveling the country talking with voters. First, Bernie Sanders was right: Americans are sick of hearing about the damn emails. Second, voters will cast their ballots based on which candidate has a record of standing up for working people and the temperament to be president of the United States. That candidate is Hillary Clinton, and no attempt to distract attention away from the real issues this late in the campaign is going to work."
