Comey Gets Second Opinion?

2016 October 28
by drdog09

It is being reported by the MSM that FBI Director Comey has reopened the investigation on Hillary Clinton. The CNN contingent is all aghast. NYT is having vapors at the thought.

This has come to light via a notice from the FBI to several high ranking members of Congress. The most prominent being Chaffetz, Chairman of the Oversight Committee. Jest of it is that the FBI in an unrelated probe has essentially found the intent that Comey said was required to proceed or no ‘reasonable prosecutor would proceed….’.

So guesses on back story —

* Comey got tired of being slimed, has a serious revolution going on in the ranks and knew of (or possibly not) existence of this extenuating evidence.

* The revelations are genuine and the FBI will pursue it.

* That the White House has determined that the investigation on the Clinton Washing Machine they call a ‘charity’ is so full of holes that rather than be implicated they have decided to get ahead of the whole affair and throw HRC under the bus.

* Last but not least, this was a way to get the Clinton charity scandal off the front page. Why trade one scandal for another? The charity scandal is easy for a voter to understand; you don’t profit off charity work. Whereas the whole security disclosure is much more complicated, too many players, and shrouded somewhat by national security law as to how much disclosure the public can be permitted to know.

Regardless this is an interesting twist. Trump has already mentioned the update at his latest rally. HRC at her rally did not even bring it up.

Interesting times.

    Rush today made the point that if you were a cynic your view would be that this is a ploy to get wikileaks off the front page for a week. Then come out just before the election and say again nothing to see here move along.

    I think FBI rank and file are pissed their reputations have been destroyed. Judge Napalatono thinks their might be some
    agents seeking whistle blower status.

    I am hope the frog in the pot is starting to stew.

    Obama had no advance warning of Comey decision? Read it in the papers like always — http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-28/white-house-says-obama-had-no-advance-warning-fbis-clinton-probe — I think not. Peddle that to the liberal rubes….

    I still have a few friends/acquaintances on the Left that I communicate with.

    They have CIRCLED the wagons. It’s Hillary, no matter what!

    But, I still believe that there are a few folks that can be persuaded, and MORE importantly, I believe this will allow people to “come out of the shadows” and openly support Trump! 🙂

    the media now changed their tune on what is happening…

    earlier today it was “FBI Re-opens Investigation”

    it is now: “Email Review Re-opened”

    wagons are circling

    from Instapundit:

    “Of course it was Anthony Weiner, the Fredo Corleone of the Democratic Party.”

    btw Grassley sides with Clinton’s calls on fbi to give context.

    “Judge Napalatono thinks their might be some
    agents seeking whistle blower status.”

    Well pretending that investigation is still somehow active would likely stop them from getting such status.

    KH, yes I believe it would forestall that. BUT, I think just the fact that Hillary and team has to scramble to make up even more shit this close to the election has to hurt.

    And maybe

    Paraphrasing – “I demand the fbi come forward wit the fact and claim no intent” again.

    In her press conference, Hillary admitted to no wrongdoing, then encouraged Americans to vote early before the wrongdoing becomes public.

    My take on this is the discovery has to be explosive for Comey to reopen the case 11 days before Election Day. If it is a scam to get Wikileaks off the national conversation, it is a dangerous scam. Both have their downsides for the hildabitch.

    Exactly. Either way she is screwed.

    She should hire KH as her press sec.

    Mullet,

    My gut still thinks somehow the WH is involved. No one else would seem to profit from this discovery.

    Could be, drdog. The WH would do anything to drag her over the finish line to keep Trump out. Maybe they think they could pardon her, but Lynch would have to convict her before Obama could pardon her. I think CW2 would fire up.

    Good article, and good observation regarding a question actually asked of Clinton:

    “Have you spoken to Huma Abedin about this development? “Clinton did not answer. Instead, she said she doesn’t know any more than anyone else about the matter.

    Like virtually every utterance Clinton makes, this statement is false. Abedin is traveling with Clinton.

    On the Hillary airplane’s wifi……

    I’m thinking the campaign got a heads up on Comey’s breaking news, and turned the wifi off so the press pool was in the dark. Neither Hillary or any of her flying monkeys wanted to be a captive audience to the questions until they had a spin story picked out. Bet that flight couldn’t end any too soon.

    Does she have a flying focus group assembled for such an occurrence?

    14 – Not just wiki leaks, but all the stories of vote fraud, we cant have people focused on that , cause then something might actually be done, particularly about those 175k in FL… without those EV’s there is no realistic path.

    Indeed KH. HRC also has a look of “You will be meeting Vince Foster soon” face.

    To me, HRC’s “Hurry up and vote early!” comment, right in the middle of the current maelstrom, is the major tell. This is a woman who has been highly trained in how to carefully lie via spin, triangulation, obfuscation, word parsing, and speaking in vague, nuanced statements. Yet she took her brief time on stage to insert this little gem to her loyalists. Interesting.

    My takeaway is that clearly she:
    a) Knows that her campaign is in deep trouble, and that the swing states are closer than the MSM is projecting
    b) Knows that there is more really bad stuff coming
    c) Knows that whatever is coming, is so bad that she may lose even her loyalists, thus “vote now so you can’t change your mind in a week”.

    great comments all…something else is coming, or Comey would have just squashed this.

    What if…there is an email that shows Comey’s #2 man being discussed after Clinton and Mcauliffe funneled a MILLION bucks into the #2 FBI guy’s Wife’s campaign?

    dunno…but something is still to drop

    p.s. to drog: love the Vince Foster comment…and the picture supports that! 🙂

    JBoz #28 –

    Spot on.

    You can bet the media has already held meetings (perhaps with the Democrats) to discuss how they can try to deflect this and are doubling down on their efforts to find dirt on Trump.

    2nd Level Effects —

    For the past 25 years the electorate has been exposed to October Surprises. We have already had one of those against Trump and now the FBI reassessment can be considered the second. This has become operative in both political parties.

    Can the voter defeat this? Yes. Don’t vote early. Don’t vote mail-in. Vote on election day in person.
