Calls whistleblowers ‘whiners’

Makes Statement

Reid says that the government whistleblowers who accused him of using political pressure to obtain special treatment for a Las Vegas casino are “a bunch of whiners.” Reid stated that it’s his job to pressure the federal government into fast-tracking decisions concerning his constituents’ needs.

If I had to do over again, I would do it again. If I did it over again, I’d probably be stronger than I was…The homeland security report came from a bunch of whiners at the Department of Homeland Security who they felt I guess that they weren’t included in my conversation. Maybe I should have called them.

Won’t seek re-election

Retirement

Reid is retiring from the U.S. Senate, bringing a 30 year congressional career to an end. He said he had been contemplating retirement for months and that this decision wasn’t attributable to either the accident he suffered or to his demotion to minority leader. He endorses Senator Schumer as his successor.

I want to be able to go out at the top of my game. I don’t want to be a 42-year-old trying to become a designated hitter.
