Hillary addresses Comey's reopening of server scandal

In the interest of pretending to be transparent, Hillary Clinton called on the FBI to release "all the information that it has" about the ongoing investigation that she got away with when Comey went all political on us. 

Of course she want the information released now--it gives her and her staff of artful dodgers to come up with balderdash to counter any evidence they may have concerning her illegal private server and using it for classified information sending and receiving. 

If Hillary wins the election, she might make history beyond being, as she says "THE FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!" She might be the first president-elect to require a pardon from the previous president and an instructional video on how not to provide hackers with emails on her server.

The way it appears at this time, the new emails uncovered during this latest probe seem to involve Anthony Carlos Danger Weiner, and perhaps his estranged Muslim Brotherhood connected wife, Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's top aide who also worked for the Clinton Foundation while working for the State Department. 

Oh what a tangled web we weave . . . 

Clinton spoke to friendly reporters in a brief news conference in Iowa, Friday. She rarely does news conferences until it was pointed out that she hadn't done one in almost a year. "We've heard these rumors, we don't know what to believe," she lied.

These were not rumors. FBI Director James Comey wrote to Congressional lawmakers explaining that the investigation is reopened. It's in writing, it is happening and it isn't a rumor, Hillary. Can you ever, ever tell the truth about anything?

"Even Director Comey noted that this new information may not be significant," Clinton lied, "so let's get it out."

At a New Hampshire Trump rally, the GOP candidate went into attack mode saying that Clinton was guilty of corruption "on a scale we have never seen before."

"We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office," he said. "I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made."

As is Donald's wont, he is probably speaking too soon. Showing faith in governmental procedure is almost always disappointing. But since Trump praised Comey, Democrats believed they had to criticize him, saying that he was putting a thumb on the scale ahead of the election just 11 days away.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (Duh-Calif.) a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee said she was "shocked" by Comey's letter, but admittedly, it takes little to shock the gun-toting, anti Second Amendment senator.

"Without knowing how many emails are involved, who wrote them, when they were written or their subject matter, it's impossible to make any informed judgment on this development," Feinstein noted calmly. "The FBI has a history of exgtreme caution near Election Day so as not to influence the results. Today's break from that tradition is appalling."

Feinstein believes that the FBI should wait until after the election so that only the Republicans would be upset that he waited. But when Comey first announced that he did not recommend that Clinton be indicted, Feinstein didn't seem to care that the announcement came on a Friday, like this one.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (Duh-Md.) and Rep. John Conyers (Duh-Mich.) said in a note to Comey and Attorney General and Clinton supporter Loretta Lynch that Comey's letter "provided such limited and vague information that it allowed rampant speculation, numerous leaks [like Trump's tax returns], and wild accusations [like Trump's accusers of sexual misconduct]," and called on the bureau to "issue a more complete accounting of the details behind this letter [so they could come up with a plan to cover their butts]."


House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said that Clinton had "nobody but herself to blame" and asked (again) to suspend classified briefings for her [as she handles classified information with the same competence that she handled Benghazi].

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tx) said the FBI's "previous half-hearted investigation of Hillary Clinton did serious damage to [its] reputation, and this latest revelation affords the FBI the opportunity to begin to repair that damage."

Federal authorities in New York and North Carolina are investigating online social media communicatins between Weiner and a 15-year-old child.
