Doug Schoen is not blaming James Comey for Hillary Clinton’s ethical troubles and legal issues. He understands the gravity of the situation.
Think about it for a moment. There is no way the FBI can finish this part of an investigation before election day. As such, even if Hillary wins, she’ll be President-elect and the subject of an FBI investigation. The likelihood it continues past inauguration day is likely and then what?
This has Schoen, a Democrat and longtime Clinton supporter, wondering about his decision:
DOUG SCHOEN: As you know, I have been a supporter of Secretary Clinton… But given that this investigation is going to go on for many months after the election… But if the Secretary of State wins, we will have a president under criminal investigation, with Huma Abedin under criminal investigation, with the Secretary of State, the president-elect, should she win under investigation.
Harris, under these circumstances, I am actively reassessing my support. I’m not a Trump —
HARRIS FAULKNER, FOX NEWS: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. You are not going to vote for Hillary Clinton?
SCHOEN: Harris, I’m deeply concerned that we’ll have a constitutional crisis if she’s elected.
SCHOEN: I want to learn more this week. See what we see. But as of today, I am not a supporter of the Secretary of State for the nation’s highest office.
FAULKNER: How long have you known the clintons.
SCHOEN: I’ve known the Clintons since ’94.
FAULKNER: Wow! But their friend here has said he’s reconsidering.
SCHOEN: I have to, because of the impact on the governance of the country and our international situation.
FAULKNER: So the news in that is are there other people, I would imagine, like Doug Schoen.
The next week is going to be crazy.
