Now They Tell Us. The FBI Says Latest Clinton Email Controversy Much Ado About Nothing.
Hillary Clinton is off the hook, again. The FBI, whose director sprang a late election surprise by revealing a further investigation into Clinton emails, now has given the "all clear" to the Democratic nominee.
From The New York Times: "James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director, said in a letter to members of Congress that “based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.'”
Let the conspiracy theories continue, apace.
The FBI announcement threw the Trump camp into an apoplectic tizzy. Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, turned on FBI director Comey claiming he had "mishandled the investigation" from the outset.
Moments before the FBI announcement, Trump running mate Mike Pence was heaping praise on the FBI:
I'm confident that they'll handle the investigation in a timely and professional manner."
