Agreed. This took me by surprise.
Trump will now try to demonstrate that he's learned his lessons from the past.
In the absence of more information from the FBI however and it's just speculation.
I wonder where the new emails came from? Leaked from hackers, or recovered underneath the bitbleach somehow.
From what we've seen so far with all the WikiLeaks emails, aside from a few errors and some poor choices, there's nothing really there - in other
words, if she's is so terribly wicked and corrupt, you would think we would have seen that in the emails including the Podesta email leak.
It's all rather tame.
My concern however, as a Clinton supporter and Trump-abhorrent person, is that there's only two reasons why Comey would do this, at this stage in the
1) Either to cover his ass to maintain integrity in light of the discovery, which he can't just bury because of the possibility of breach of secrecy,
and if it was seen in hindsight that that he buried it, then the integrity of the investigation would be hampered, or,
2) Because there's evidence of an indictable offense.
3) Because he has a partisan chip in the game... (no, I don't think Comey is in collusion with the Trump campaign, so we can rule that out.
The not knowing which emails he's looking at or what's going on - Clinton must be in a panic, and in this case Bill can't just call or meet with the
This is either very bad for Clinton, or nothing really serious, just the necessity to retain integrity and not be seen in hindsight to have just
discarded or buried the new discovery.
Given the pressing election timeline - I will however make another prediction, although I suppose my batting average is toast at this point.. (hey I
admit it) and that is
There will be an assessment offered by the FBI on these new emails well before the election, say by no later than Wednesday or just under one week
I think that at some level Comey's purpose is to simply maintain integrity of the FBI's investigation.
On her part - she will simply say that she might have made an error or two
So the question that arises - will they indict or make a recommendation to the Justice Department to indict her?
No, unless the breach of security was so severe as warrant an indictment against Clinton, to the shouts of lock her up, then this will be resolved by
Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest, right at the very end of the election.
But you're right. Trump has toned it down and will just ride it out, repeating his mantra about the emails and repealing Obamacare.
So he might win one or maybe two of the six states that he HAS to win.
Unless it amounts to an indictable offense, then I think as more information is presented according to their newest investigation, that Clinton will
be able to breath a great sigh of relief.
Wednesday I predict. And it will blow over. Everyone knows that she didn't do it maliciously but might have made a mistake or two, and is otherwise
well acquainted with security protocals and is in full awareness of what's required.
But, if it amounted to an indictment (highly unlikely) then it pains me to hear the shouts of joy from Trump's supporters, which is rather humorous
you have to admit.
To have so much pinned on her use of email, but with no clear evidence in any of it, so far as to this gargantuan level of corruption that Trump
speaks of. If she's corrupt, then she's smart enough not to leave a trial in her emails which so far is generally the case - and talk about
I think she'll slip through the eye of the needle on this one, but with it up in the air... that's quite the move on Comey's part, there must be
something there, unless my hypothesis above is the case.
