As I predicted, the Clinton email scandal has taken another turn, this one detrimental to Donald Trump, with an announcement that the emails found on Anthony Weiner’s devices will not result in charges against Hillary Clinton.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” FBI Director James Comey wrote in a letter to Congress. “I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short-period of time.”
How could he have finished this is such a “short-period” of time when some experts said a serious review could take weeks? Who knows.
Comey, as you are aware, had dropped a bombshell last month with his announcement that emails pertinent to the Clinton investigation had been found on Anthony Weiner’s computer, and the probe was being reopened.
Now Hillary will say she has been “vindicated” and pronounce herself to have been “proven” innocent when of course she should have been charged in the first place.
Some of the damage may already have been done, with people noticing that Clinton remains, and will continue to remain, in legal jeopardy. But the surge of relief and celebration in the Clinton camp with this coming two days before the election could help carry her to victory.
