With less than two weeks to go until Election Day, Americans have been waiting to see if any shocking developments or revelations can disrupt the tight race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Well, this certainly “classifies.”
James Comey (of all people), FBI Director, who has been seen by many as complicit in a cover-up of Hillary’s improper use of a server and deletion of 33,000 emails, just released a stunning announcement.
From CNBC (of all places):
The FBI is probing new emails related to Hillary Clinton, FBI Director James Comey said in a Friday letter.
“In previous congressional testimony, I referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony,” Comey wrote.
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” he added.

This new evidence could give James Comey the second chance he needs to make a proper judgment of the case, especially after all the embarrassment and heat he has taken from the American people with possible political connections to the Clintons. The timeline is more sobering:
“Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be signifcant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony,” Comey concluded.
There is almost no chance we will have any results from the FBI before November 8th, but America is paying attention. This announcement alone has caused the stock market to slide. The last thing we need is a president-elect implicated for crimes before inauguration. The one thing Americans can do about it? Make sure it’s a moot point and vote someone in who isn’t under investigation by the FBI.
