Yesterday, James Comey, director of the FBI dropped a bombshell, perhaps nuclear into the last days of the 2016 Presidential campaign when he sent at letter to Congress that because of emails found in the course of an "unrelated" investigation, that he had found more emails pertinent to the investigation of Hillary's email, and that he was reopening the investigation. Federal officials told NBC News that the Emails Related to Clinton Case were Found in Anthony Weiner Investigation into charges of his having sexted with a 15 year old. Speculation is rampant, but the best guess is that Huma's lap top, unsearched in the original investigation (pardon me?) was found to have additional emails between Huma and Hillary, and some of them get to the motive behind the super secure Hillary Clinton basement/bathroom email system. Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein: Bernstein: FBI Would Not Reopen Case Unless New Evidence Was "A Real Bombshell"
Political impact? How to judge? Democrats, of course, are outraged, having thought to have put the matter, if not to in the grave, at least in a closet out of sight. Podesta Calls on FBI Director to 'Immediately Provide Full Details' of New Email Probe knowing full well, of course, that Comey can't do that for all kinds of really serious legal reasons. Initially silent while the news sunk in, later in the day, Hillary followed suit: Clinton calls on FBI to release 'full and complete facts' of email review although up until this moment she was all deny and delay. Paul Krugman goes full conspiracy theory on FBI Director Comey’s letter to congress tweeting, among other things:
Comey probably not trying to elect Trump. But is he trying to help R senators? If he just leaves this hanging, that will be best guess— Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) October 28, 2016
As for Republicans? They were as happy as ants at a candy store explosion: ‘This Changes Everything’: Donald Trump Exults as Hillary Clinton’s Team Scrambles, Trump reinvigorated by FBI Clinton probe. In the Washington Post's big article this morning: Computer seized in Weiner probe prompts FBI to take new steps in Clinton email inquiry
“A total bombshell,” said Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), a member of the House Homeland Security Committee. King predicted that the FBI would not close its inquiry before the election and said he believed that Comey wanted the public to know of his move regardless of the outcome.But a little more interesting than mere off the cuff responses by politicians and other idiots, Megyn Kelly and Curt Gowdy had a real discussion:
Markets Rattled By Fresh FBI Review of Clinton Email. I could go on and on and on with links about this topic alone; but for now, that's about all the real information we have. I wonder if any more will develop by the election.
Believe it or not, the Clintondotcom digital bin was full before this story broke, so I'm not done yet. In retrospect, this one seems quaint: Biden: Hillary didn’t understand the “gravity” of secret e-mail server She doesn't understand or accept any limits on her power and authority. But still, Hillary wants Biden for Secretary of State. Hillary allies on secret e-mail server: “Whole thing is f****** insane.” The FBI-Clinton-McAuliffe nexus takes on a new layer of stink as Hillary Clinton Personally Headlined Fundraiser for PAC That Gave $500,000 to Wife of FBI Head Overseeing Her "Investigation":
It is crucially important that conservatives join the liberals in vouching for the integrity and good intentions of government, no matter how corrupt it appears to be.
Otherwise your're a deplorable radical who hates stability, corporate profits, and small children.

Wikileaks continue to dribble in: Clinton Staffer Speechless on How to Address Bill's Sexual History. Hey, what can you say? Team Hillary Feared Clinton-Cosby Comparisons. Rightly so. Clinton Adviser Tanden Calls Israel Govt. “Ruthless Wingnuts” Not to worry, the Jewish vote is still locked up. Podesta tries for the lions share of the vote by attacking Walter Palmer, the man who killed "Cecil the Lion." WikiLeaks Dumps Mean Hillary’s Presidency Would Be Tainted from Day One No, the Presidency would be tainted because of Hillary's actions. Wikileaks is just some of the evidence. More evidence Hillary’s allies don’t think much of David Brock. Some slight evidence of character discernment on their part. Again, this was before the Comey bombshell which put the crosshairs of any purported Clinton hired assassins clearly on Anthony Weiner but Howie Carr suggests you Don't hang around Doug Band this weekend for his role in the Wikileaks on the Clinton

I agree with this wholeheartedly.

But That Was Yesterday, and Yesterday's Gone: Apropos of the Clinton campaign:
I have noticed, with great chagrin, that many conservatives support the Social Bullying Model -- the Social Justice Warrior coordinated group pile-on mass-shaming -- when it's someone else's ox being gored.
I don't. Enough. Enough of it all.
