Drawing a parallel between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, filmmaker Michael Moore explained how James Comey and the FBI worked to sabotage Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Moore believes the letter that Comey felt compelled to send to Congress will have the effect of “depress[ing] the Hillary vote.” What’s that mean? It means that Clinton voters aren’t “going to be as excited as they need to be this week… they are not going to make calls and they are not going to take five people to the polls with them.” That could make all the difference, Moore says.
Moore says these voters like those in his home state Michigan will still vote for Clinton but she needs more — she needs her constituency to push for her till the deadline. The FBI letter deflated the faithful, Moore says. Moore notes that Clinton has had trouble in Michigan, a key state, and that the FBI letter may have been enough to really hurt her there. She’s ahead in the polls right now. But “in our primary in March Hillary was ahead of Bernie by eight to 22 points on the morning of the primary,” Moore reminds. Sanders won Michigan. Trump is a threat to do the same if the Clinton vote has been “depressed.” Moore was interviewed by Don Lemon on CNN.
