As you may remember, Director Comey ended this investigation several months ago. It is utterly amazing that he would announce a renewed interest in more emails. This could easily affect the vote for the President of the United States, and surely Director Comey understands this implication.
And therein gives us our first understanding of what is going on with the investigation. It is very doubtful that these emails have anything to do with Ms. Clinton’s yoga classes or seating arrangements at her daughter’s wedding. The emails, numbering more than 1,000, were found on a computer used by both disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and his wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, according to law enforcement officials with knowledge of the inquiry who spoke to reporters on the condition of anonymity.
In short, as famed reporter Carl Bernstein hypothesizes, I think we can assume that Director Comey already knows enough about these emails to suspect that this is a significant and major problem. To put the American electorate into a frenzy on a whim would be irresponsible of Director Comey. While I disagreed with Dir. Comey on his earlier conclusions, I do think that he is smart enough to know that he just caused Ms. Clinton a lot of pain and possibly destroyed her chances of being elected.
We probably will not get a solid explanation from the FBI in time for the election. We probably will have to choose our next President of the United States without knowing if the FBI thinks that she is a traitor. We definitely will not have a trial by a jury of her peers in time for the election.
What will the American electorate do in a world of uncertain choices and incomplete information and significant innuendo? We will know in just a few days.
