<p>Jeff Pegues touted one of James Comey&#39;s &quot;critics&quot; on the 28 October 2016 edition of <em>CBS Evening News</em>, after the FBI director wrote to Congress that new e-mails related to Hillary Clinton&#39;s unauthorized private server had been uncovered in an unrelated investigation. Pegues underlined that &quot;the timing of today&#39;s revelation has angered some former Department of Justice employees,&quot; and quoted from one such individual&#39;s posts on Twitter. However, the journalist failed to mention this former DOJ employee&#39;s past as a Democratic operative.</p>
