A Hiroshima sized October surprise:
The FBI is reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server that she used while serving as Secretary of State, NBC News has learned. FBI director James Comey wrote in a letter to Congress that “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.”
Go here to read the rest. I have been hearing that members of the FBI on the original Clinton e-mail investigation were ready to come forward and denounce the non-indictment of Clinton and claim that the original investigation was a sham. This may be an attempt to head off the FBI agents coming forward, or the newly discovered e-mails may be very damning. Either way, ten days out, this is very bad news for the Clinton campaign.
Update: Oh, this is too perfect! I have to be dreaming!
In the latest stunning revelation in today’s saga involving the FBI’s second probe, moments ago the NYT reported that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related to the Clinton case — one federal official said they numbered in the thousands — potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.
Until recently Anthony Weiner was married to Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, who separated from Weiner recently after news emerged that Weiner had engaged in an online affair with an underage girl.
The F.B.I. told Congress that it had uncovered new emails related to the closed investigation into whether Mrs. Clinton or her aides had mishandled classified information, potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.
Go here to read the rest. By seizing Huma Abedin’s electronics the FBI struck the mother lode. Every dirty deal that Clinton was involved in will be on them. As for Weiner, I wouldn’t be surprised if he made copies of everything he found over the years on Huma’s electronics, for potential blackmail purposes: Hillary I would like you to appoint me ambassador to France. I am sure that you would agree that is a fitting post for a man who can keep quiet about everything that you and my beloved Huma discussed through e-mails?
Trump is living proof that it is smarter to be lucky than it is lucky to be smart.
