Who has November 9th in the James Comey deadpool?

Oh dear fuck me. More of this crap.

CNN’s Carl Bernstein said that the FBI’s stunning announcement that it assessing new emails pertinent to its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server wouldn’t have happened unless “it was something serious.”

“Well, there’s no question that the e-mails have always been the greatest threat to her candidacy for president, that her conduct in regard to the e-mails is really indefensible,” said Bernstein…

“We don’t know what this means yet except that it’s a real bombshell,” Bernstein continued…

OOOH. Did you get a kick out of that? Did it AC/DC your frisson? Did it Freebird your amygdala? Boy howdy, brand new emails pertinent to its Clinton investigation! Conduct in regard indefensible! Trump is right! Watergate!

Yeah okay, but wait a minute. Carl? Are you deploying explosives because she had an e-mail account? On her own server? And then she…e-mailed some people?! Is that what’s so “indefensible”? Because that stuff is not remotely a “bombshell.” The kids call that a “spitwad.” Or a “musty fart.” Or lulz, “SRSLY?”

But if you want to know actual facts for yourself, nowadays, and learn the crazy new things, as you once did long ago back when you were, if I remember, a journalist rather than a chintz TV psychic and scandal-chucking pundit, then OK here:

The disclosure by the Federal Bureau of Investigation late on Friday, October 28 that it had discovered potential new evidence in its inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s handling of her personal email when she was Secretary of State has virtually nothing to do with any actions taken by the Democratic nominee…

There is no indication the emails in question were withheld by Clinton during the investigation, the law enforcement official told Newsweek, nor does the discovery suggest she did anything illegal. Also, none of the emails were to or from Clinton, the official said. Moreover, despite the widespread claims in the media that this development had prompted the FBI to “reopen” of the case, it did not…

The e-mails just now discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop were neither to nor from Hillary Clinton. The candidate is also not under investigation, nor has the previous investigation been “reopen”-ed. Try grokking that, Carl.

Frankly, an FBI director’s behavior is supposed to be better than this. For Comey to insert his bureau into the election this way without clarifying what the hell he’s doing, or what in god’s name he’s looking for, is appalling. He’s gonna lob a bombshell! at the country then go kick back in his condo, maybe watch some baseball. I’m sure no one will get the wrong idea about Hillary Clinton, and oh by the way what’s she done with herself lately? What’s that? For president, you say, really? Jeepers, who knew? November 9th he should be canned.

Because I’m a helping sort, and god willing he’ll need a new hobby soon, here’s a little something he can sink his teeth into:

Clintons’ New Chappaqua House Renovated Without Permits

From the lawless Clinton files: it seems the Clintons can’t bother to obtain permits for renovations on their new Chappaqua house…

Maskiell…said as he headed to the basement to talk to the contractor, he noticed the kitchen, floors and walls appeared to have been recently renovated and new electrical fixtures were being installed in the ceiling…

A Clinton spokesperson did not return requests for comment.
