Longtime Clinton insider John Podesta joined the bipartisan anti-Comey bandwagon this week, slamming the former FBI director as a complete “idiot” in his handling of Hillary’s botched email investigation.

Podesta was speaking with CNN when he unloaded on the former bureau boss, saying Comey was “throwing shade on everybody, but expecting very little responsibility for himself.”

Podesta: Comey is an 'honest idiot'

“I’ve never attacked Mr. Comey for trying to do something that was for a partisan reason,” Podesta said. “I think it was to some extent his arrogance that led him to make a very bad error of judgment … I guess I can agree with him that he’s an honest idiot, but I thought he was an idiot in the context of this election, and that it was influential in the outcome.”
