That's right after turning this election on it's head two Fridays ago by suggesting that there was new evidence which might suggest that Hillary Clinton broke the law, NOW James Comey is saying, two fucking days before the election, that he was full of shit.Here's the letter from Comey, following up on last Friday's announcement (via @frankthorp) --> pic.twitter.com/9zwatHuRHa— Hallie Jackson (@HallieJackson) November 6, 2016
Courtesy of the Washington Post:
FBI Director James B. Comey notified key members of Congress Sunday afternoon that after reviewing all of the newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails the agency stands by its original findings against recommending charges.
Comey wrote that investigators had worked “around the clock” to review all the emails found on a device used by former congressman Anthony Weiner that had been sent to or from Clinton and that “we have not changed our conclusions expressed in July.”
The conclusion from Comey provided one last twist to the 2016 presidential campaign and came just two days before Clinton will face Republican Donald Trump on Election Day.
Of course this comes almost too late as the damage from that first letter has already impacted this election in a negative way for the Democrats.
And the frustrating part is that if the FBI had just reviewed the supposedly "new " information BEFORE Comey sent that initial letter, ALL of this never would have happened.
So for those of us who are progressives and Democrats it is up to us to get this new information out to as many people who have not yet voted as possible.
Tweet, Facebook, blog, do whatever you can to inform the voting public that, despite what the Republicans and Trump campaign have been saying, Hillary Clinton is NOT facing an indictment.
And for the record she never will.
However I hope the same cannot be said for FBI Director James Comey.
P.S. By the way does everybody remember when Donald Trump referred to Comey's earlier letter as "bigger than Watergate?"
