Thousands ... ? So the fuck what. He should have called every regional director in the country, and every lawyer they have, and said "You will not be going home this weekend until you have read 500 of these". He COULD have been a leader. He BLEW it. The President should fire him, tomorrow.

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Tricky political situation. Sit on it and somebody would call his impartiality into question then appoint some political hack. Smarter to release it now, let the media go wild for a day and then drop the let down that there's nothing at all. Again. Anybody engaging in chin wagging before that could look damned foolish. Foolisher. Most Foolishester? Damn, we need supersuperlatives this election cycle.

So you're saying Trump was wrong? Because these new e-mail don't appear to have come from Hillary's private server.

That may be true. But the FBI has not released that kind of info. It could be they were not directly sent by Clinton to Weiner. But maybe Huma forwarded emails that she received that were originally from Clinton, and they contained classified info.

What I'm saying is the letter from the FBI Director was an idiot move. He should have determined the source, AND if they were Clinton's read them ALL BEFORE he dropped the bomb. Whatever that takes, do it.

No. Sometimes there's an emergency. IF he was going to say anything, it was incumbent on him to say more. He failed.

What part of "not from Clinton's server" did you miss?

That may be true and if it is then he should be sacked for partisan behavior. I'm just sayin that it's a wee bit premature to make that call.

Clinton supporters at the table next to us at the restaurant openly weeping.

It's pure insanity. On every network. Now all of a sudden every democrat's favorite FBI Director is now the devil himself. And the republicans love him again.

Think I'll pop some popcorn and watch the madness. Wonder how long it will take to see Hillary's poll numbers TANK.

The only way the email story could get any worse for Clinton would be if some kind of actual wrongdoing were unearthed at some point.

I don't believe that to be true. She won't lose any hard core supporters. But if this cloud is over her until election day, she will lose undecideds and independents. Comey will need to come out and say for sure that she is in the clear, that its not about her directly. If he doesn't she's going to lose potential voters, as well as some voters just might stay home. And it will also embolden Republicans because they smell blood.

RE: FBI reopens Hillary email case
Let's investigate properly with critical thinking, some rational thought and a look at current reports.

First, LDH, the title of this thread shows how little you know. The investigation was NEVER closed, therefore it can't be "reopened." That's just you and Trump's cronies drooling at the chance to make her look bad. But you're all wrong and just manipulating the letter to suit your own ulterior motives and desperate need to rally from embarrassment to just a good old fashioned ass-beating.

They completed their investigation in July, but it remains open for just such an occasion. His letter, while cryptic and ambiguous, was needed because his testimony indicated he had read all emails that they could muster. Now that there are more emails, he needed to let Congress know so that he could update the record. He is literally paranoid now after the Republican witch hunt and the party's petulant attitude toward him and others in similar positions, such as the head of the IRS.

Second, NOWHERE in the letter does it say reopen, nor does it imply any wrongdoing. In fact, it says he doesn't even know if the info is important at all. The word "pertinent" means pertaining, which in this case means emails between Huma and HRC were found during the period when HRC was SoS. Gee, a top aide emailing her boss? How incriminating!

Third, new reporting from Newsweek indicated this has nothing to do with ANY actions by HRC and has everything to do with Huma taking emails that were sent TO Clinton and transferring them to her laptop so she can print them at home because the printer at the state department was not up to snuff. http://www.newsweek.com/hillary-clinton-...din-514918

Sloppy? Yes. Stupid? Yes. HRC's fault? Nope. A criminal act by HRC? Nope. Just another chance for assholes like you and Drumpf to overreact, twist and spread misinformation prematurely without knowing facts? Yep.

While this horrendously, hastily, irresponsibly written letter will have some undecideds wondering what the hell is going on, when the responsible reporting and facts emerge, the polls will remain strong and its effect will be nominal at best.

Edited to add Newsweek link.
