A former Justice Department spokesman under former Attorney General Eric Holder called FBI Director James Comey’s press conference announcing he would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton over her email servers “absolutely outrageous.”

In a series of posts on Twitter, Matthew Miller said the FBI and DOJ are “supposed to speak in court,” not press conferences.

Miller also tweeted the presser was symptomatic of Clinton yet again getting “worse treatment than anyone else would.”

He also suggested that Comey’s announcement violated DOJ rules about disclosing information about ongoing investigations.
