Cazart! Even the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Attorney-General of the United States couldn't make the "nothing to see here, folks" story go down the throat of the American public. So today, in what can only be an unpleasant and huuuuuuge surprise to Hellery, the FBI announced that it will now conduct an additional investigation into e-mails from La Clinton's private email server.
FBI Director James Comey just about nailed the lid down on the case in July, when he tut-tutted at Mrs Clinton for being "extremely careless" in her handling of classified information when she was Secretary of State, but didn't think her deliberate flouting of the laws warranted any criminal charges.
Today, however, Mr Comey sent a letter to Congress -- whose subpoena Shrillery likewise disobeyed -- in which he said the FBI had discovered "in connection with an unrelated case, the existence of e-mails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation." Imagine that! After all those 1000s of man-hours of meticulous police work, they must have missed something! Mr Comey said his team of dogged investigators would "review these e-mails to determine whether they contain classified information" -- whatever that means -- and "assess their importance to our investigation."
"Although the FBI cannot assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work," the FBI Director concluded, "I believe it is important to update your committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony."
What Mr Comey did not say was when the Bureau's "further investigation" would be concluded and the "update" given to Congress. If you think it will be before November 7th, Walt has some land in Michigan's Upper Peninsula he'd like to talk to you about.
