According to USA Today, FBI Director Comey informed congressional leaders that the FBI is reopening the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server when they found more missing emails on Anthony Wiener’s computer in a separate investigation. Wiener is the ex husband of Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest assistant. It’s reported that leaders at the justice department are furious that Comey chose to inform congressional leaders despite being warned not to by AG Lynch. Timing the release of political news must be a science. I envision this as Hillary riding a two headed pony.
The Daily Mail out of the UK reported Hillary has now come out and asked the FBI to publish everything they have about her emails. This is purely for optics sake. Damage control is never about the facts; its about your perception of the facts. She can call for the release of all the FBI information on her for free because it gives her the image of being honest and reasonable, and, as a lawyer, she knows they can’t discuss anything under investigation. If she really was honest and reasonable she would not have destroyed and deleted thousands of emails while there was a standing subpoena for them. She could be really reasonable and get Huma’s computer and give it to the press and the FBI. She is in a trap of her own creation, and like it or not, she can’t get out without help, and apparently Mr. Comey has decided he can no longer abide the cost.
In the last debate Hillary Clinton’s argument for not discussing the Wikileaks hacked emails was because those terrible Russians hacked them. There’s no evidence to prove the Russians hacked them, but as long as you brought it up Mrs. Clinton, didn’t you testify this summer that there was no evidence to suggest your emails had been hacked by the Russians? Now you can’t answer a debate question because you assert that Wikileaks is really a tool of the Russians, and that must make Trump cozy with the Russians because he is supposedly now being their minion by bringing this up. It’s sad to me that she thinks Americans are this slow.
Have you also noticed the timing of recent events? I’m sure that as an act of kindness the FBI announced their decision to open the investigation up on a Friday before a busy Halloween weekend. They are counting on the weekend news cycle changing the headlines to something bad about Trump. If that doesn’t work, maybe they’ll have a mass clown sighting to derail the news cycle. Whether the FBI likes it or not, this reveals that they are trying to minimize the damage to Hillary’s campaign.
As long as we are on the subject of skulduggery and subterfuge, within three hours of reading Comey’s decision in the news, I read an “article” in bipartisanreport.com stating that Gary Johnson and his running mate have conceded the election and are endorsing Hillary. Of course this is not verifiable and not likely to be true. The funny part is that the “article” was dated on Wednesday the 26th of October, but didn’t show up in my Facebook news feed until Friday the 28th three hours after the FBI news. The devil is in the details. How would this not show up in news feeds until after Comey announces the reopening of the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton? Probably the article’s job was to minimize the damage of the Comey announcement by distracting the impressionable. I wonder who was behind the article. Propaganda can be so entertaining.
This whole email scandal is not only a problem for Hillary, it puts Huma Abedin in a really bad spot too. You can be pretty sure her immunity deal is predicated on her sworn testimony that she gave up everything she knew. Now that they found more, her immunity agreement will not cover any new information and may be invalidated by her lie. She’ll have to tell the truth now or go to jail. According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, the mere fact that they reopened the investigation indicates that they have already seated a grand-jury in this case.
Politicians who are susceptible to blackmail are a risk to the country they represent. That is the real reason why candidates must be fully vetted. Claiming its not the Russians and it is the Russians makes Hillary look like she is trying to ride a two headed pony, and whoever is in charge of timing this circus has to be going nuts by now.
