Jeff Pegues touted one of James Comey's "critics" on the 28 October 2016 edition of CBS Evening News, after the FBI director wrote to Congress that new e-mails related to Hillary Clinton's unauthorized private server had been uncovered in an unrelated investigation. Pegues underlined that "the timing of today's revelation has angered some former Department of Justice employees," and quoted from one such individual's posts on Twitter. However, the journalist failed to mention this former DOJ employee's past as a Democratic operative.
