Well, his base are the uneducated

Like I said, I wouldn't trust Comey as far as I could throw him.
All he said was there was nothing in there to cause enough concern to re-open the classified email scandal.
He didn't say that there wasn't other juicy stuff in there that has nothing to do with classified information that they may be looking at in regards to Clinton.
650,000 emails is a helluva lot of emails. Just sayin.

I'm Johnson supporter- full disclosure.
Seems like trump supporters are mad and democrats think this is good for Hilary....
But I think she just walked into a trap
Trumps main point recently is drain the swamp. Comey refusing to indict seems to me to fit right in his narrative. He can now shout louder than ever it's all rigged and corrupt.
This will reinforce his base, far from removing the wind from his sails, it will seem to prove him right in the minds of the undecided.
While Hilary could hit her supporters over the head with a baseball bat and they would say she's not criminal and love her more.
I hope this helps USA gets its head out of its ass and stop supporting the two headed coin that is the democrats and republicans and elects a real third outsider in 4 or 8 years!
Well, his base are the uneducated, mainly, so you might have a point there. but other than to go see the star of the apprentice, a show I have never watched, they may not be able to remove themselves form their couches.

A note for Johnson, his running mate endorsed Hillary last week.
That's probably because some of their polling suggests they are sucking votes away from Hillary instead of Trump, and they don't want to be responsible for putting Trump into office.
THE TROUBLING NOMINATION OF WILLIAM WELD
The Significance of the Drug Trade in Mexico
(1997) Bill Clinton has nominated Massachusetts governor William Weld for U.S. ambassador to Mexico. This is a truly troubling nomination, because of Weld's past in the Iran-Contra drug affair.
During Iran Contra, William Weld was head of the Justice Department Criminal Division, and as such responsible for covering up U.S. complicity in drug smuggling to finance Central American wars. When Senate investigator Jack Blum tried to investigate the Contra connection to the West Coast coc aine trade (recently resurrected by the San Jose Mercury News), Weld fought giving him access to essential records and to witnesses in government custody. Instead, U.S. attorneys in California were instructed in running interference. Just as U.S. attorney Michael Fitzhugh was stonewalling the investigations by Russell Welch, Bill Duncan, and a grand jury in Arkansas.
But that is not all. As the head of the Criminal Division, Weld was part of all the sinister plots hatched in a Justice Department run amok: he wrote a February 29, 1988 memo declining a preliminary investigation of the Inslaw affair "due to lack of evidence of criminality." Congress later concluded otherwise.
Already as U.S. attorney in Boston in 1985, Weld had shown his value to drug networks. He failed to vigorously pursue evidence that the Bank of Boston had participated in money laundering in the amount of $1.2 billion.
