Multiple reports say a band of FBI agents hostile to Hillary Clinton are behind the damaging leaks hitting her campaign, according to NBC News.
A current agent told the Guardian that "the FBI is Trumpland," and Reuters and the Washington Post named the New York office as a locus of hostility or frustration. FBI spokespeople did not comment or had no information when asked for comment by the reporters.
Adding to the speculation about the leaks being politically motivated, Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani said on Fox News before Comey's announcement that Trump had "a surprise or two that you're going to hear about in the next few days. I mean, I'm talking about some pretty big surprises," according to the Daily Beast.
But on Fox News Friday, days before the general election, Rudy Giuliani was asked if he had any prior knowledge of the announcement. "I'm not part of it at all," he replied.
