FBI Director James Comey's letter to the House of Representatives on Friday saying that he was re-opening the Clinton e-mail investigation has caused the Democrats to grab handfuls of gorilla dust to throw into the air to confuse things. In particular:
- Both Hellary and John Podesta claimed that Comey only sent his critical letter to House Republicans -- NOT TRUE, he sent it to an equal number of ranking Democrats.
- Democrats claimed that the FBI did not have a search warrant to peruse the Abedin/Weiner computer -- Anthony Weiner is said to have given the FBI their computer so it didn't need a warrant.
- Hellary and Campaign Manager Robby Mook have claimed that Tomey hasn't seen all the e-maiłs in this "ambiguity bomb" so how does he know that they are material ... and they could be duplicates of ones already in hand -- the FBI has had this info since September. I'm sure that they know everything that is in them. They were discovered in a file folder call "Life Insurance" ... probably culled from Huma's correspondence by either Huma or Anthony as insurance against stressful times. (My money is on Weiner.)
- Democrats have resurrected the specter of Russian involvement in our election ... pretty much a generic charge that is trotted out when nothing else is at hand.
- Harry Reid, in a letter to Tomey, has accused him of violating the Hatch Act which forbids the FBI of involving itself in elections. This charge needs to be investigated further but it is probably just more gorilla dust. Stay tuned.
It has just been revealed that there are 650,000 e-mails and documents in this treasure trove ... hopefully including all those that Hellary's people destroyed last March ... and then some. No wonder the FBI needs to take some time to resolve things.
