This is good though, its exposes more about the incompetence at the FBI.

Even President Trump tweeted about it, oh, THEY KNOW.

Idiots leftist only get their information from Fakenews, so they wouldn't see it or know. Lol, TICK TOCK TICK TOCK...

Congressman Jason Chaffetz just said that Comey is now in "perjury" territory.
insider.foxnews.com...

James Comey may be in the same group of "untouchables" that AG Jeff Sessions feels are too big to indict.

(Lynch, Clinton, Rice, Comey, et. al.)

To the contrary..

That in the Spring of 2016 the evidence significantly demonstrated that Clinton was going to be exonerated, so much so that drafts of conclusion began to be assembled...BUT Comey decided to continue and chase down every interview and lead before finally concluding..shows thoroughness separate from political considerations.

Make up you minds folks..

Did he throw the election to Trump by that last minute, right before the election, announcement that he was re-opening the investigation or was he working for Clinton?

Apart from the partisan narrative here, no one seems to be thinking objectively or logically.

The only logical explanation that fits history is that Comey CONTINUED to investigate despite being 99% sure what the conclusion was.

If Comey didn't do interviews it would have been too obvious. He had to make it look it it was a real investigation.

Comey was forced to speak about the Weiner Abedin laptops

The NYPD forced his hand!

The finest indeed!

If Comey hadn't announced he was re-opening the investigation ONE WEEK before election day, Trump and the GOP would not have been able to dominate the news media beating the crap out of her right before voting.

If Comey had wrapped up the investigation in the Spring...It would not have been "Clinton Email Server" dominating headlines for months..

The Premise that he was trying to help Clinton is ultra-contrary to what occurred in reality.

Of course he did. We're all fairly certain that by this time either his life, his reputation, his family or any possible combination of the three had been threatened.

Not to mention the fact that he's clearly a gutless weasel.

Still, Trump/Sessions could go after this with as much gusto as conservatives are echoing in this thread, so why don't they? Would team Trump suffer at all from publicly stating he's reopening the case (as I suspect many of your would be delighted to hear)?

At some point you can't dress the failures of team Trump up anymore. Claiming that they're all hands on deck with a super secret alpha black box investigation that's finally going to bring all those pizzagate allegations to life is a pipe dream. If you folks really believe Clinton and Comey are in cahoots as part of some secret cabal, I hate to break it to you but it doesn't seem like team Trump shares your sentiments (or more likely doesn't have the stomach to go down that lunatic fringe rabbit hole).

This also beggars belief because it doesn't explain Comey's super double blind bluff of declaring Clinton as still under investigation a week before the election (or am I about to be educated as to how that little gambit was designed to actually help Clinton)?

Comey opened the investigation and closed it 2 days later stating Hillary is innocent. It was a double exoneration of Hillary and it seemed intentional because Paul Ryan came out urging Republicans to vote Trump when that happened. Otherwise if Comey didn't do that Hillary would have won.

I would guess that when the real truth comes out, it will be clear that the investigation of hard evidence had been concluded, the lack of anything actionable had been determined, and as the announcement of the findings would be attacked from all sides regardless ... and knowing that Comey wanted to be as "by the book" as possible and protect the FBI from any accusations of wrong-doing ... the "draft letter" was based on the actual evidence in the case.

Interviews with witnesses didn't change the facts of what emails were sent or what emails were classified.

This is another chapter in the continuing political theatre from the Republican Congress.

Add this to Loretta Lynch "just call it a matter"

Looks like Comey was a more than willing partner in
a coverup of Clinton's mishandling of classified inormation.

Snakes on a plane and alligators in the swamp!

This matter has been referred to the new FBI director, Wray.

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

S&F to you Rick for this posting.

Looks like more of the same old, same old... corruption and scumbags in high offices doing illegal things.

She couldn't get prosecuted Rick, because it would have "de-railed" the Purple Revolution going on right now in the USA.

The infamous "they" knew all of this hate, and divide and conquer garbage was coming down the pipeline.

The "swamp" is really an ocean of corruption... it turned into an ocean round about 9-11.

BREAKING NEWS: Testimony about early drafts of his statement shows Comey KNEW Clinton was innocent months before he made public statements declaring the same, but he continued the investigation right up until the election, even re-opening it a week before, to hurt her chances of winning!

Just as valid an interpretation based on the facts. Well done.

Of course, now prepare for the wailing-and-gnashing and rent garments ....

REALITY CHECK:

The evidence showed she was guilty as sin, and should be in prison like anyone else would be without the bat of an eye. Then Comey went beyond his authority and illegally exonerated her. Everyone was paying too much attention to this one of many scandals. So Comey chose to exonerate her just before the election. They foolishly believed anyone in their right mind would give a flip what the FBI thought about Hillary's guilt.

Then right out of the Clinton playbook. They start accusing Trump of exactly what they have been proven guilty of doing for a diversion.

Donations to the Clinton Foundation, and a Russian Uranium Takeover

We have to quit feeling sorry for these douche bags and put them in prison where they belong or they will keep murdering people like Seth Rich. It's time to man up.

Then why isn't Clinton being tried as we speak?

Further why are Republican Senators on the record that Russia did indeed attempt to interfere in our election, as is Mr Trump?

Hillary should be investigated by a special prosecutor to avoid conflict of interest. Perhaps Mueller can do the job after he's done with his current investigation.

I think their looking into it. This latest revelation is enough to throw Comey's verict out. They'll have to go out of their way now that Lynch and Comey did their job. Some how the Clinton's have a talent of getting people to feel as though they shouldn't go to prison even though they continuously pull scam after scam.

Or maybe their hoping she runs again. So they can bring all this up just before election day.

They don't have any evidence the Russians hacked into any computers to change the election. It's all make believe speculation. Seth rich was one of the sources not the Russians.

Trump is interested in closing off all voter fraud unlike the DNC who refuse to have voter ID. That's why Trump and some of the republicans are considering that Russia along with 50 other countries might try to hack into an election. Many of the Republicans are almost as bad as the Democtats and would like to get rid of Trump so they can have crooked business as usual.

Yeah "they" have been "looking into it" for over three years. How many times have we heard that Clinton was about to be indicted/jailed/etc.

Sure, because (assuming they had the incontrovertible evidence you claim.) delaying justice to cause political harm is the American way, in your opinion??

I disagree, although, that's certainly what we saw from the Republican Congress from 2013 onward.

You can keep stating that there's no evidence of Russian interference, and those that can be assumed to know (including the POTUS) keep stating that it's true.

Seth Rich was not murdered by the DNC. That's a far-fringe theory that was nonsense when it started.

...and what a weak finish. Trump is willing to do anything to make himself feel better about his narrow win in the EC and Clinton's massive victory in the popular vote. He's obsessed with size ... his hands, crowds, etc.

Every investigation, including by the Bush Justice Department over 3 years, has demonstrated clearly that there is no significant voter fraud in the US. It's a fantasy that so many tell themselves because they can't accept the reality of the shifting demographics in this country.
