An October Surprise
From The FBI
In case you’ve been asleep for the past 24 hours the latest big election news is that FBI director James Comey has told Congress the bureau is investigating newly found information relating to the Crooked Hillary email scandal.
Trump said Weiner was a security risk as far back as August 2015.

Dir. Comey said investigators would determine whether the messages contain classified information.
The FBI previously found that Crooked Hillary had sensitive information on a private email server.
When they examined devices belonging to Ms Abedin and Mr Weiner, which were seized in a separate FBI inquiry into whether he sent sexually explicit emails to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, more information relating to the Crooked Hillary inquiry was found.
Two Big Questions
This comes on top of two weeks of revelations from WikiLeaks showing corruption relating to Crooked Hillary, husband Bill, the Clinton Foundation and even implicating President Obama in, at the very least, lying to the American public.
The two big questions that as yet remain unanswered are 1) what new information did the FBI discover on the Abedin devices, and 2) what impact will this have on voters?
Comey said in his rather vague letter to Congress that investigators had discovered the emails “in connection with an unrelated case… that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” but that he “cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work”.
In July, Mr Comey said Crooked Hillary’s handling of classified material during her 2009-13 tenure as secretary of state was “extremely careless”, but then overstepped his remit and declared her cleared her of any criminal wrongdoing because they could not prove “intent” which is not a requirement of the laws that were broken by Crooked Hillary.
However, Comey has since come under intense pressure both from outside and from within the FBI.
Two damning issues for Comey are the lack of thoroughness of the initial investigation into Crooked Hillary’s illegal servers and recently the fact that the wife of deputy director McCabe had received $675,000 in contributions to her political campaign.
Whether this turns out to be the smoking gun that finishes off Crooked Hillary’s bid for the White House is not certain. But it will cost her votes and it will energize the Republican Party and independents to get out a vote for Donald Trump.
Now everyone in the pro-Trump camp senses victory and Mr. Trump’s message was very clear, “Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we’ve never seen before. We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.”
