It was the pot calling the kettle black.
Harry Reid blew a gasket Monday over a comment a fellow senator had made on Friday.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, contemplated the FBI leaking details of its investigation into the use of Hillary Clinton’s personal email server in the event Democrats attempt to interfere.
The Iowa Republican made his musings at a Des Moines Rotarian meeting Friday.
Reid fired off this tweet in response:
It’s wrong for any Senator–let alone the Judiciary Chairman–to urge selective leaking of a federal investigation. https://t.co/W10LDZ4KL1

Seriously? After contemplating such a move by the FBI, Grassley said he couldn’t recommend it because he considered it illegal.
“I wouldn’t be encouraging it because if it’s a violation of law, I can’t be encouraging a violation of law,” he said. “This is kind of my own opinion, this is something I’ve heard.”
Apparently the Nevada Democrat didn’t catch that part of Grassley’s comments, and folks on social media thought Reid’s hissey-fit was rich considering the source.
@SenatorReid Says the Master of the Leak tactic. My Lord Man!!! Retire before you hurt yourself.

@SenatorReid Like it was wrong for you to say Romney didn’t pay his taxes, but then when called on it said “We won, didn’t we”

.@SenatorReid Same kind of wrong as it is for the ranking Dem Senator to blatantly lie from the well of the Senate floor, or nah?

But Reid wasn’t finished. He also took his complaint to the Senate floor Monday and claimed that Grassley had “encouraged the FBI” to leak details of its criminal investigation into Clinton to the public.
