The second shoe has dropped. Just in time for the election, FBI Director James Comey issued a second letter that once again concludes that in a further search of e-mails that came to light on the laptop of former Congressman Weiner, husband of Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, there is no evidence that could be used to indict the former Secty. of State for her misuse of a private insecure e-mail server.
Frankly, this conclusion stretches credulity. Even though Comey states that the FBI have been “working around the clock,” in the 8 days since his last letter it seems impossible that they could have gone thru the reportedly 650,000 e-mails that were found on Weiner’s laptop. Further e-mails from and to Clinton by her close aides concerning her work as Secty. of State of the USA cannot legally be allowed to be present on an unsecure laptop held by a private person. One wonders why so many of Clinton’s e-mails were in fact stored on this laptop, presumably by Abedin. Were they a kind of insurance policy against incrimination or was there a more sinister reason? Without a thorough investigation we will never know.
Releasing this second letter two days before election day may not in fact change the outcome. Many of us are so sure that Clinton is being protected by actions of the DOJ and the Attorney General of the USA, Obama appointee Loretta Lynch, that we are certain this FBI conclusion is a purely political one. Maybe Comey issued his previous incriminating letter to cover his own behind in case of future investigations. But, if Clinton wins be sure there will be no further investigations and the matter will be killed. Otherwise who knows what might happen to those who continue to pursue this investigation. If Trump wins then expect justice to triumph.
