Perhaps Comey et al can read the early election returns properly, don't want to get in to trouble with a President Trump enforcing the rule of law for all. Yuge! No longer tempted to bet, odds have collapsed for a Trump win.

OT: Colonel, did you see this gem that Kaine dropped at a recent campaign speech at your alma mater?

Kaine says Clinton would seek updated war-making powers

OK, lets announce something like this two weeks before an election about new material that may or may not be “significant” and lets not provide a timeframe for investigating. Hmmmm. I wonder what that's all about?

I can't wait for this clownshow election to be finito.

Tyler

I wonder if Comey saw some internal polling that made him think twice about letting Hillary break the law. Perhaps he wants to keep his job under a Trump Administration or at least be allowed to retire without becoming an accessory to conspiracy in this whole mess.

What is the "unrelated case"??????????????

johnA

Assange says they will release more info that "Should cause Hillary to be arrested".

??????????

Eric Newhill

Saw a clip of Clinton at a rally in NC a couple days ago and wondered why she was harping so instantly that everyone get out and vote early. It just seemed weird to me to emphasize early voting so much. Well now that question is answered. The votes cannot be taken back.

Sir

This looks like kabuki. Nothing can come of it especially if the manufacturing of the election result is successful.

I speculate that this is to blunt the drip, drip, drip of Podesta's emails that clearly show the deep corruption and the real people behind the scenes that actually run the place. Wall St and the big money from foreign governments have the seat at the table. The public position is hot rhetoric while the private position is pay to play.

Money and hubris informed by elite groupthink rule the day!

According to the NYT it is related to Anthony Weiner

I still see more Feel the Bern stickers than Hillary/Kaine stickers.

I'm with Tyler, I think they know who's about to win, at least it's clear to me here in Florida that Trump will win big.

TV

It's a charade.
Comey reads the polls and thinks that there is a remote chance of a Trump election and wanting to keep his job (VIP, bodyguards, limos, etc.), he opens another fake "investigation."
If Hillary wins, "what investigation?"
The DOJ and the FBI are thoroughly corrupt politicized organizations.

Old Microbiologist

Plus, he is on the hook for "obstruction of justice" for failing to prosecute. He will get sold out by his subordinates quickly if Trump wins. The amount of blanket Presidential pardons is going to be staggering. But who will pardon him?

Sam Peralta

Trump nailing Florida. A must win state for him. That will be YUGE!!

Can he win Pennsylvania or Virginia? They will play a pivotal role.

Old Microbiologist

The MSM seems to be reversing their rhetoric which is a dramatic turn around and for me is the most significant predictor of the outcome. Rats leaving a sinking ship?

Sam Peralta

If we want some real drama that will drive ratings through the roof then Anthony Weiner should do an exclusive TV interview. And its got to be all about deviant sex and drugs.

That's what all the virtue signalling Americans love most.

Henry J.

Apparently Comey got spooked when Hillary asked him to meet with her in Fort Marcy Park.

Just kidding.

Fred

" the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to this investigation.”

I take that to mean that Hilary and the Fab Five who took the Fifth didn't release all the emails and thought the first "get out of jail free" card was all they needed. Will Chelsea be meeting with the AG this time (to talk about the baby and the weather of course.)? Perhaps Bill should arrange a speaking tour in Dubai for the end of the year.

Seamus Padraig

Yes, I'm taking a skeptical, believe-it-when-I-see-it attitude on this. Comey publicly admitted this past summer that he had adequate evidence to justify an indictment, but for some reason, he chose to just short-circuit the process. Why the sudden change?

Henry J.

Weiner's weiner might have stopped WWIII.

Seamus Padraig

You mean, Carlos Danger!

Word got out because of :
https://thinkprogress.org/trump-chaffetz-fbi-investigation-lies-e9fff5359102#.bqocjf9rv

FBI Director James Comey alerted Republican members of Congress on Friday that bureau investigators would review some additional emails that might relate to Hillary Clinton’s email server. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee who has already vowed to spend the next several years investigating Clinton should she be elected president, quickly rushed to announce the news, falsely claiming that the case had been “reopened.”

rjj

If the DNC and Media overlords could, in effect, appoint HRC, if it seems she is likely to lose be disqualified, what is to stop them from declaring an unprecedented, unforeseeable emergency which regrettably forces them to select a compromise candidate (possibly one qualified by having previously been elected to the executive branch)???

[/same old, same old PIA WCS pessimism]

BillWade

I've been watching the Clinton News Network, I never do normally but wanted to see some squirming, it's there and it's hilarious.

Edward Amame

BillWade

Have you seen the FL polling data collected at Real Clear Politics? It looks like it's gonna be close-ish, but appears to be leaning Clinton at this point. Maybe Comey's vague announcement will change that.
