Comey is not a "partisan hack".
I also said that if there was anything interesting that he did say, it was that all options for the timing of the report of the investigation were open; and I said, at least by implication, that he was equivocating about the description of a 'security review'. He knows that part of the investigation would necessitate a security review of the computer system - he is not stupid and he is not uninformed. To deny knowledge of the meaning of the term is ludicrous, even if the FBI uses a different terminology. Why such a transparent 'word play' then if not to make a political point score?
The very heart of FBI operations lies in our investigations—which serve, as our mission states, “to protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign intelligence threats and to enforce the criminal laws of the United States.” We currently have jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal law, and you can find the major ones below, grouped within our national security and criminal priorities. Also visit our Intelligence program site, which underpins and informs all our investigative programs.

I think there is something else in his statement that is not getting as much attention but could be more meaningful.
Comey said that he wants quality over quickness with the investigation and that he is not "tethered" to any timeline.
This seriously worries me because we could be looking at a cover up of dynamic proportions to the likes not seen in decades (at least that we know of). Does anyone in the U.S. federal government want to see the leading candidate for POTUS indicted weeks before an election or perhaps after the election? I worry that the results of the investigation are being drawn out until it's too late and things will be swept under the rug so to speak. I hope this is not the case but it would not surprise me in the least.
