Today the FBI reconsidered. So here we are, 11 days from the election, with an unprecedented FBI probe of the likely next president of the United States, who will undoubtedly be given a pardon by president Obama in his final finger to US citizens.
The FBI is reviewing a new batch of Hillary Clinton emails, bureau director James Comey said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday.
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation … 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,” he wrote.
Comey, who is also a Republican, took a lot of head in September for his agency’s decision to not press criminal charges in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email sever.
Comey Took a Lot of Head
Well, that likely explains everything.
In other news, Paul Ryan called for a suspension of all classified briefings for Hillary Clinton until Emails are fully resolved.
Isn’t this like closing the corral gates after all the wild horses escaped?
Tweet of the Day
The Tweet of the day goes to Paul Krugman, picked up by Glenn Grenwald.

I reiterate my tweet on why Wall Street backs Hillary.
If Hillary does win this election, she can thank
- The media for kid glove treatment
- The media for feeding her debate questions in advance
- Wall Street whores
- Comey’s head
Of course, had Trump not totally blown the first debate, this race would likely be one-sided the other way.
I switched to Johnson following that debate, extremely annoyed that Trump failed to prepare at all. I have reassessed. I am voting for Trump, as long as he has any chance at all.
