Bill O’Reilly exploded at FBI Director James Comey, struggling to understand why he appeared to cover up key information in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“Why didn’t the director of the FBI tell the American people about that email?” the frustrated host asked guest Juan Williams on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday.

Hacked emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta showed an exchange with Clinton ally Neera Tanden in which they discussed their frustration with the email situation. In another email, long-time Clinton aide and attorney Cheryl Mills warned Podesta “we need to clean this up.”
O’Reilly blasted Comey for not addressing these emails in his report.
“He didn’t mention it in his summation of the case,” he said. “Either Comey didn’t know about it, which is a dereliction of the FBI’s duty, or he knew about it and covered it up.”
Williams suggested Comey viewed the matter politically and not as one of “criminal action.”
“What?” O’Reilly asked, incredulous. “The campaign itself, the Hillary Clinton machine itself, is admitting this is bad and they’ve got to do something and Comey doesn’t think it has anything to do with the investigation?”
“He’s the FBI director!” O’Reilly exclaimed. “No politics! He’s the investigator! He didn’t blanking mention it! That is so damning!”
Viewers were fired up after watching O’Reilly’s finger-pointing attack on the FBI and Clinton.
