FBI [Political] Director James "I'm With Hillary" Comey wrote to top members of Congress that the FBI has "learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation."
Comey did not go into a description of the emails in question, saying only that they surfaced "in connection with an unrelated case." [Possibly a "case" involving the nation's distrust and disdain for him, and believing him to be a political hack who doesn't deserve the respect the position of FBI Director normally deserves. But who knows?]
Comey told lawmakers the investigative team briefed him on the information a day earlier, "and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation."
It's amazing that an investigation needs to be launched in order to determine whether a document is classified or not. It's also amazing that when Clinton mentioned, in the last debate, the response time to launch in a nuclear attack, that nothing was done. And it's really amazing that Hillary Clinton is allowed to attend government briefings on secret information--based on her enormous experience, it should be obvious that she will somehow mention the content publicly.
Comey said the FBI could not yet assess whether the new material is significant and he will not predict how long it will take to complete "this additional work."
You can bet it will take as long as Clinton needs it to take, given Comey's recent history, when in July he basically said that Clinton's was careless enough to be indicted, but she didn't mean any harm and should be left to run the country, like she ran the State Department.
Comey has come under fierce criticism, as well he should. Lawmakers and a New York real estate mogul claim the investigation minimized Clinton's handling of classified information.
Trump spoke to a wildly cheering group of supporters in Manchester, N.H. and praised the FBI for having the "courage" to "right the horrible mistake that they made." He said that he hopes that mistake will be "corrected."
"Hillary Clinton's corruption is on a scale we have never seen before," Trump said. "We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office."
House Speaker Paul Ryan said of the decision:
"Yet again, Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame. She was entrusted with some of our nation's most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information. This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of a private email server, and her refusal to be forthcoming with federal investigators. I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton until this matter is fully resolved."Former Obama administration spokesman and guy who called Bret Baier "dude" tweeted this demand of the FBI:
The emails in question are not from WikiLeaks, so it's going to be hard for Hillary's BS hustlers to sluff this one off by blaming Russian hackers.
I can't wait to find out what happens next, but I'm not holding my breath for an indictment. So far, the Clintons have been "judgment-proof."
