Just when you thought the 2016 presidential election couldn't get anymore unpredictable, former GOP Congressman Joe Walsh — who recently suggested there should be an armed revolution if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump loses on Nov. 8 — is saying what FBI Director James Comey did to Hillary Clinton was "unfair" and "wrong."

Walsh, who has tweeted threats to President Barack Obama, came out Sunday in defense of Clinton.

On Friday, Comey released a letter stating he's reviewing new evidence in the Clinton email case, stemming from emails on a computer owned by Clinton aide Huma Abedin. 

Comey has yet to release what the emails contain and how they are relevant to the Clinton case, causing him to receive criticism from both sides of the aisle. 

Walsh, breaking from usual character, seems to think Comey's actions will unfairly influence the election.

What a time to be alive.
