Hillary Clinton’s Damn Emails!
Repeatedly I have been most scornful of all aspects related to the email mess created by Hillary Clinton. I made it very clear in March when I wrote the following.
There has never been a political cloak for Clinton from this blogger when it comes to the foundational issues surrounding this mess. There was no justification–zero, zip, nadda–for the email server to be set up in the fashion that she desired. For someone with as much political savvy as she possesses it was one of the most foolish decisions she ever made. I suspect at the time she was hoping to deny her opponents a potential unknown by keeping the server private.
But in the end her move has created a political event that is embarrassing for her and most troubling for the party.
Today the mess got worse–and at the most awful time.
FBI Director James Comey says the bureau is reviewing new emails related to Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, according to a letter sent to eight congressional committee chairmen, a surprise development with 11 days before the election.
After recommending this year that the Department of Justice not press charges against the Secretary of State, Comey said in the letter that “recent developments” urged him to take another look.
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear pertinent to the investigation,” he said.
