Well well! After dramatically revealing a new round of investigations into Hillary Clinton’s private emails, the FBI has announced that once again, it will not be recommending criminal charges against her.
FBI Director James Comey announced on Sunday that around the clock reviews of Clinton’s emails found on a device used by disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner have done nothing to change the agency’s July conclusions.
The reopening of the investigation into Clinton’s emails came courtesy of Anthony Weiner, estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Weiner is currently under investigation for sexting a 15-year-old girl.
Comey’s decision to announce the investigation was sharply condemned by Democrats, with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid accusing him of meddling in an election in a way that was potentially criminal.
This incredible waste of time and energy has taken its toll on Hillary’s standing in the polls, with her once considerable lead over Donald Trump having shrunk following Comey’s ham-handed interference. In the end, the emails were mostly found to be duplicates of those already examined.
Still, Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon seems confident that the untimely resurrection of the email nightmare will have little effect on Tuesday:
YOU KNOW, HA HA, MAYBE THIS IS FUN! MAYBE THIS WHOLE ELECTION HAS BEEN A GAME.
Meanwhile, out in Trumpville:
In closing: Please don’t forget that Donald Trump flat out refused to release his tax returns.
