Comey’s October surprise: Dud.

Comey’s bombshell came at us like a meteor and hit with a surprising amount of force. The FBI Director’s little cry for attention made a pretty good crater, no doubt about that.

We’ve been circling the smoking device for days. Late last week we began poking at it, daring it to go off. Sometime Friday we finally got sick of the damn thing, and we demanded the boys in the munitions squad haul it off. Now they tell us it was only packed with confetti.

Just over a week after FBI Director James Comey dropped a bombshell into the presidential race by revealing newly-found evidence in the Hillary Clinton email probe, he offered what amounted to a “never mind” Sunday, notifying Congress that the newly-discovered messages wouldn’t change the bureau’s conclusion that no prosecution of Clinton was warranted…

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” Comey wrote. “I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short-period of time.”

Goodbye James Comey. Goodbye Donald Trump. Goodbye Breitbart news and Pepe the Frog. Farewell, so long.
