Will FBI exonerate Hillary PRIOR to election on new email evidence? (READER POLL)

Will FBI exonerate Hillary PRIOR to election on new email evidence? (READER POLL)

Hillary and MSM on the attack demanding everything be released before election

The FBI letter to Congress stating that it is reopening the investigation into her handling of classified information set off the expected reaction, documented in our prior post, Mother of all October Surprises – FBI reopening Hillary email case.

Ed Morrissey suggested on Twitter that this might be another case Lucy (James Comey) pulling the football away from Charlie Brown (Hillary opponents) once again at the last minute.

Hillary and Team Hillary are on the attack, demanding that Comey release everything he has on Hillary:

Expect this to be a deafening chorus of demands from the mainstream media, acting in unison. It’s all she and they can do — try to cast doubt by demanding something Comey likely cannot give in such a short time period.

So what is your best estimation of what will happen?

Seems to me there are several choices before the election as to Hillary:

1. Comey does nothing more publicly.
2. Comey releases more information, but doesn’t resolve the case.
3. Comey releases more information, clears Hillary.
4. Comey releases more information, recommends charges against Hillary.

What do you think?

For electoral impact purposes, I think it’s a narrower choice.

Comey either exonerates Hillary or not. If yes, he’s Lucy, everyone celebrating today is Charlie Brown, and Hillary could recover from whatever impact today’s announcement has. If No, then the issue lingers through election day and can only help Trump.

Yes or No. That is the Question:

Will FBI exonerate Hillary PRIOR to election on new email evidence?

This is the final nail in the Trump coffin. Hillary will “slick” through as she has all other incidents. That’s how corrupt this administration and the political elite are.

Can’t vote YES.
Can’t vote NO.

I’ll wait.

At this point…

Hillary getting out in front of this one makes me hope, hope that there is some traction to it. But I no longer have much faith in my fellow Americans’ awareness or ability to think critically, so the cynic in me says this too shall pass.

Comey exonerates Hillary, Huma goes under the bus.

The question assumes that there will be a legitimate investigation. That is an assumption that I am not willing to make.

Why should I trust the FBI after their previous Hillary email investigation? What’s changed other than the date? Same people, same administration — Why would I expect an honest investigation THIS time? The leaked emails demonstrate the left always has a plan to deceive.

I said right here, before the primaries, that Obama would like to get rid of the Clintons without leaving any of his fingerprints. Has to do with who owns the party. This way, Hillary hangs herself by being herself. And all her allies are ousted from the DNC. And the godfather’s wife kissed Hillary before the hit.

Trump tweeted this exact scenario a year ago. Complete with Weinerman.

This is like living in a season of Mr. robot.

They are demanding that he release the information, because they know that he cannot and will not do so.
They feel that it makes them look “innocent” (always dangerous to use that word with the Clintons) to demand release of the emails, and they feel that there is very little chance that Comey will actually do so before the election.
When was the last time you saw an investigating officer or prosecutor release the evidence to the public before a decision had been made to charge or not charge someone?
Never, that’s when.

Rick the Curmudgeon | October 28, 2016 at 8:47 pm

Not only will Comey not exonerate H->illary! before the election, everything discovered on Weiner’s phone, etc. will be taken out of circulation under the guise of an “ongoing investigation.”

So I’m going with “1. Comey does nothing more publicly.”

Rick the Curmudgeon | October 28, 2016 at 8:48 pm

Not only will Comey not exonerate H->illary! before the election, everything discovered on Weiner’s phone, etc. will be taken out of circulation under the guise of an “ongoing investigation.”

H->illary! supporters still get to play the “She’s never been convicted or even indicted” card

So I’m going with “1. Comey does nothing more publicly.”

Comey is a criminal. Comey’s intervention in this election is unreal! This announcement hurts Hillary’s election. Remember, Comey has been a helper of the Clintons for more than 20 years, so he did not intervene to bring her down.

Just a few days before the election Comey will say the new evidence shows the is no evidence of any wrongdoing by Hillary and she is clear of any wrongdoing.

It is unreal to think that Comey would do this to undermine Hillary. Comey is a Hillary supporter and Comey is a criminal!

    What you say makes perfect sense but fails to explain why. Refusing to indict Hillary again avoids destroying her but doesn’t really help. It will cause her to stop sinking in the polls but won’t bring her back up.

    So the question is, if the fix is (still in) – why even go through the motions at this point? Why not just keep quiet and let her coast to victory?

      snopercod in reply to irv. | October 29, 2016 at 8:06 am

      why even go through the motions at this point?

      That’s the main question in my mind. It’s way too late for Comey to save his reputation. Pressure from the FBI troops? I doubt it. Hillary has something on Comey that she might use against him if she became president? Maybe, but he’ll be leaving in January anyway and he’s set for life regardless. What does he care? I just don’t know.

    Just a few days before the election Comey will say the new evidence shows the is no evidence of any wrongdoing by Hillary and she is clear of any wrongdoing.

    “Fine, then show us the evidence and let us judge for ourselves.”

    (Hard drive crash epidemic.)

buckeyeminuteman | October 28, 2016 at 9:01 pm

Political posturing. Comey will recommend charges rather quickly and the DOJ agrees and she is found not guilty. All before Jam 20. They probably realize she is losing and she wants to save herself from Trump’s Administration. If she is acquitted before he becomes President, she can never be found guilty, thanks to Double Jeopardy.

    If she is acquitted before he becomes President, she can never be found guilty, thanks to Double Jeopardy.

    Only on those particular charges. She could still be charged with other crimes.

    Her life has been one long crime spree. If she loses her protection from the top, she’s toast. Her only options are (1) get the top job herself, where she’s untouchable, or (2) get Obama to give her one of those general-purpose pardons for everything she’s ever done.

    Number (2) is risky; Obama hasn’t shown any great interest in bailing others out, even those he’s a lot chummier with than the Clintons; and it would be a blot on both their records. Saint Barry’s self-image, though entirely imaginary, would find such a blot distasteful.

      Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to tom swift. | October 28, 2016 at 9:59 pm

      Or (3) Bag-ass out of the country to a place that has no extradition with the U.S. Maybe she’s going to go babysit that $1.8B she and Bill sent to Qatar…

The FBI has already exonerated Hillary once. Why exonerate her twice? Found on Weiners computer must be damaging.

No exoneration, and it will make no difference.

    Massinsanity in reply to Romey. | October 28, 2016 at 9:26 pm

    Likely so but Hilary will take office as the first president to serve a 4 year lame duck term.

    She is corrupt to the core and even the left wing media recognizes it.

I say no exoneration. I also say it helps Trump.


    Clear as a bell.

    snopercod in reply to Leslie Eastman. | October 29, 2016 at 8:34 am

    I agree this will help Trump win but, venturing into conspiracy theory land, maybe they want him to win. If the insiders have realized that the polls are totally bogus (they are) and that Hillary is going to lose anyway, Trump would make an excellent scapegoat for the coming chaos. The GOPe already hate the guy and so do the all democrats. Could they be setting up Trump as a fall guy for when (___fill in the blank___) happens. I’ve thought for a long time that the Fed is waiting for a Republican president so they can pull the punch bowl and tank what’s left of the U.S. economy. Let’s not forget that Comey was a Wall St. insider – on the board of money laundering HSBC. Not only has Obama racked up more debt than we can ever repay, but he has neatly set the world up for WW III. Lots of bad stuff could happen in the next four years. Social Security and Medicare could collapse. We know the dems fight the long war so are they making a sacrifice play here? If the inevitable happens while Trump is president, then it will be like LBJ notoriously said about the Civil Rights Act of 1964: “I’ll have them n***ers voting democrat for the next 200 years.” The insiders could be setting Trump up to fail in order to kill off the Republican party forever. /tinfoil hat removed

      CloseTheFed in reply to snopercod. | October 29, 2016 at 8:54 am

      There’s no doubt the Fed can’t keep interest rates this low forever. And it’s simple math that once the interest rates go up, the cost of the federal debt becomes crippling….

      That’s all it takes to set up serious problems. Nice of the Fed to be so kind to Obama…… and so vicious to Americans’ financial well-being.

Roy in Nipomo | October 28, 2016 at 9:30 pm

I can see this as a ploy to prevent any disgruntled agents from going public. They can hammer them much harder for leaking info from an “ongoing” investigation than from a “closed” one. Of course, I’m cynical.

All very odd.

If Comey is planning to let Hillary skate, why bring this new stuff up at all?

And if he isn’t, and has something solid, why follow it now? He blew off the solid stuff he had before.

Is he trying to force Obama to give Hillary a preemptive pardon? Why?

Did he find some solid grounds for an espionage charge against Huma? But he’ll look like a prize chump if he did, and missed it the first time around because he didn’t examine her e-mails properly when the FBI was investigating Hillary. And if he has a case against Huma, why reopen the case against Hillary? Does he need to do that to pursue a perjury charge against Huma? But if perjury is all he has, I can’t see him pursuing it. Outright espionage, maybe; perjury, probably not.

The situation remains cryptic.

With all of the early voting being pushed in our brave new world, there are votes against Hillary generated by today’s action that could be made between this morning and whenever a supposed quick exoneration occurs. Thus, I don’t see it likely that the Comey plan is to have this Friday action followed by a pre-election exoneration.
obama and his crew work very hard for each fraudulent vote: It is hard to see them orchestrate an action that is bound to lose them some votes.

I think Comey is doing this to save face with the rank and file at the FBI. However, to keep Obama placated, Hillary will get another pass because, as we all know, she didn’t really mean to violate the Espionage Act, she was just extremely careless. Huma might get a slap on the wrist but will get something like probation with a parson, if needed. Weiner is the one that they will gladly throw under the bus. If I were him, I’d make sure that I had something on someone important (Huma, Hillary or Bill) to avoid serious jail time.

    RodFC in reply to dug23. | October 28, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    I think you hit on something accidentally. odds are Weiner has the emails and is not a happy camper. Which means the emails will get out no matter what Comey does.

    So he’s probably covering his ass in case the emails do leak.

“Will FBI exonerate Hillary PRIOR to election on new email evidence?”

He’ll neither exonerate nor recommend charges. In July he provided a long nasty assessment against Hillary, but then declined to recommend indictment. I think he felt it was too close to election, that having an unresolved ongoing case would be prejudicial to the candidate’s race, so he provided all the ugly stuff so that voters could decide on it and vote accordingly.

Now he’s found additional evidence against Hillary from the Weiner investigation, but the situation’s the same – too close to the election (in Comey’s opinion). So, I think he’ll do like he did in July. Press conference, lay out the new ugly stuff for voters, decline to recommend charges, and let the voters do what they will.

C’mon another FBI spouse running for office might be in need of a Clinton cash infusion. The price probably went up significantly…. kind of like Iran with hostages

Seriously, if the other 100,000,000 Clinton scandals haven’t swayed indy voters, nothing will.

This whole thing smells like Hillary was stupid enough to explicitly order Huma to do something illegal in one of her emails.

I’m guessing the agents in charge of investigating Weiner told Comey he could either reopen the case or they were going to leak them to the press and publicly demand he be fired.

Remember when it was reported that some email came out and Huma’s reaction was “can I have a copy of that email?” I thought it was strange, but maybe she was keeping her own copy of dangerous emails at her own house to cover her butt. Emails could also have been retained for blackmail purposes.

Still sloppy investigation if they never looked at all the potential computers.

I do not trust Comey.

Whatever this is, it’s big, and Comey could not ignore it, could not even delay it.

It comes out at the worst possible time for the Clinton crime syndicate, at the end of bad news from the wiki monster, now this. It will hurt. Only requires a few points of movement to change the election. (of course, I had Trump winning all along)

There will be no exoneration before election day. There will be lost votes in early voting. Comey couldn’t even keep this off the front page for a few more days.

It is what it is, and that is bad news for Clinton.

It’s a beautiful day.

Do not forget the Wikileaks wild card.

“Obama would like to get rid of the Clintons without leaving any of his fingerprints. Has to do with who owns the party.”

There is another angle too:

The consequences of a President’s failed policies don’t usually come home to roost until the next administration. And Obama is nothing if not Vain.

If Trump is the one to clean up Obama’s mess, Obama can be assured that the Media will tar Trump with the blame. Same as they excused the first Black President by claiming it was all Bush’s fault.

But if Hillary is the one to clean up Obama’s mess, there is a new factor in play – the first Woman President. And the MSM will create all kinds of fantasy narratives to protect her.

Which would mean telling the truth about how incompetent Obama really was. And he can’t have that.

“smells like Hillary was stupid enough to explicitly order Huma to do something illegal in one of her emails.”

Not stupidity, complacency. She’s been above the Rule of Law for so long that she got lazy and sloppy.

Its how most men are caught cheating. First time, they shower afterwards so they don’t smell of her perfume. They check their shirts for lipstick. They create elaborate alibis to explain why they had to work late.

Forth and Fifth time, they stop checking their pockets, they stop dropping their own clothes at the cleaners, they stop intercepting the credit card bill.

Because they have been investing much energy in the deception, but realize they are not under an equal amount of scrutiny. So they stop being so careful.

Eleventh time, they have their mistress in their own bed, and play until 6pm because they are assure their wife wont get home until 6:15….

And I thought the one who worn dresses was goofy.

Assume not assure. Edit function sure would be nice…

I went with ‘Comey will do nothing else publicly… Until November 9.’

Reasoning: Comey has been in the Clinton’s pocket since many years ago, BUT this way he gets to play both ends against the middle.

If Hillary wins: Comey can wash his hands of the mess by passing the watered-down/redacted results of the week-long study of the emails to the AG (Lynch), and let all the flack fall on the appointee who only has another month or two in office. Nothing will come of it, the FBI will have done its investigatory duty, and Comey’s fine until the end of his term.

If Trump wins: Comey can pass all of the facts along with ‘deep regrets as to the lawbreaking of the nominee’ and give every indication he expects to be testifying at her trial. Obama will pardon her on the way out the door (or not, depending on how much they still hate each other) and Comey can claim vindication, using such phrases as ‘a high bar to charge a former SecState and presidential candidate’ and ‘the evidence finally warranted the results.’

Where’s Rags? He could straighten this out for us.

    Ragspierre in reply to Petrushka. | October 29, 2016 at 1:05 am

    It’s getting so I can’t go out for a nice dinner with friends and leave you kids at home without a sitter…!!!

    I dunno, hell.

    Rush thinks that this is a Hellary gambit to take attention off Wikileaks.

    The Deemocrats are acting like it’s a dirty trick.

    Der Donald is just doing exactly what you’d expect and making hay out of it.

    I’m the guy who counsels that we suspend instant judgment for facts to develop in almost all cases. I like that approach here. Reading some of your ASSumptions and wild speculation is fun, however.

Just something to remember. Comey did not “exonerate” Hillary, in his previous statement. In fact he was very critical of Hillary’s actions. What he did was say that, based upon the evidence available at that time, “no prosecutor would prosecute anyone”. Being an attorney, as well as a politician, Comey left himself an out. It was simply CYA, on his part.

This announcement hurts Hillary’s campaign. Why it was made is not clear. Remember, in this semi-organized enterprise [the Establishment], Hillary Clinton is little more than a middle manager. There is at least one level of power brokers above her, if not more. And, they exercise considerably more power than she and her husband do. So, Comey does not work for her. He probably works for someone else, higher up. We could speculate as to the reasons for this action, but it would all be baseless speculation, at this point. Let’s wait and see what happens over the next few days. Then, we might get a better idea of what is going on here.

This is NOT about emails and a personal server. It is about treason and the sharing of “secrets” to Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood. It goes well beyond Huma (who was the conduit) and Hillary (who is a dupe in the entire scheme) to the President and Valerie Jarett (sic).

All the immunity deals given out by Comey are null and void if a prosecutor ( meaning someone taking over when Trump becomes President ) can convince a jury that Comey was part of an ongoing process to obstruct justice.

His ass is really out on the line right now, and he may be thinking of becoming th4e new John Dean. Or maybe he is scared someone will turn John Dean and he wants cover before it happens.

I think at this point he is just running scared and covering his ass. Especially since he probably didn’t know these emails existed.

    RodFC in reply to RodFC. | October 29, 2016 at 1:31 am

    Let me clarify by an example.
    Assume Rudy G is appointed special prosecutor, and he would really like to go after Mills, but can’t because Comey gave her immunity.
    If Rudy can prove that Comey was involved in a criminal conspiracy when he granted her immunity, then the immunity no longer applies.

    The result being that now Comey has a big target on his back. He is is trying to cover his ass because he stuck it way out there in the first place.

    TX-rifraph in reply to RodFC. | October 29, 2016 at 5:34 am

    I am unfamiliar with offers of immunity. Is truthfulness a typical condition? If Huma, for example, lied after being granted immunity, is the immunity offer void?

My assumption is this announcement was made to bury whatever evidence is on that laptop. If whatever has been released on Wikileaks and such isn’t enough to turn you against Clinton this sure won’t, so the announcement has no real effect on Clinton’s election chances. Making it part of an active investigation allows hardline tactics against leakers and puts physical control of the laptop in Comey’s hands (or one of his lackeys). After election day it will be announced that nothing of substance was found and that the the laptop was destroyed (so nobody can contradict the official narrative regarding what was or wasn’t found).

Whatever is the emails, Comey and the FBI would have been ruined if he held it until after the election, so it had to come ought now. He blew the first chance, so now he has to do the right thing unless he wants to guarantee his reputation as a political wh0re.

VladimirPutin | October 29, 2016 at 1:53 am

Apparently Preet Bharara is in charge of the Weiner investigation.

I think he found the emails, notified the FBI, and said if they didn’t go public with it, he would. The SDNY is pretty independent–Preet doesn’t care about political pressure. So they had no choice. I don’t think this is part of the Clintons’ plan. They seemed like they were completely blindsided by the news, and they aren’t good actors.

Carlos Danger | October 29, 2016 at 2:39 am

She’s so caught up in taking her seat in the White House as the Queen Bee in charge she’s completely lost her mind. She just enough off the deep end to do something drastic if she doesn’t get her way.

I am going with “2. Comey releases more information, but doesn’t resolve the case.”

If so, Hillary wins with smaller margins than she has now.

Off topic, something I came across. part of Trump’s recent interview with George S.

Boy did George step into that one.

    Exiliado in reply to RodFC. | October 29, 2016 at 7:12 am

    That was a good one.
    I’m not a fan of Trump, but when you see things like this, you understand why so many people want him in Washington.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | October 29, 2016 at 8:20 am

He won’t exonerate her. He will thread the needle. He’ll make a public announcement next week to disclose the status. He’ll say how many emails were discovered. Then he’ll say that the investigation is ongoing, but at this early stage “x%” are duplicates that were examined in the first investigation and “y%” are emails the FBI has not seen before.

Clinton herself asked the FBI to release the emails and the Clinton people are saying they are duplicates. If they are not dupes it is crazy to make those assertions because the truth will leak.

I hope I’m wrong, but I think anti-Hillary folks have worked themselves into a frenzy and they are going to be disappointed.

A few months ago, LI asked if Comey would recommend prosecution or not. I could not accept that Clinton’s corruption would run so deep as to reach a Conservative director of the FBI. I voted that he would recommend prosecution, but the DoJ would decline to pursue charges. I was wrong about Comey.

Now, I’m afraid to vote. Logically, he will not, even if he wants to. I believe Comey will released a few non-incriminating emails for show and then downplay others. He will work to minimize the impact of any incriminating emails, which he will withhold until after the election. He may express some personal doubts about the case, hoping to influence any undecideds.

I don’t think he could justify an exoneration after an 8 or 9 day investigation. Even shorter if he wanted to give Hillary’s campaign time to regroup. I think he will avoid any comments or mentions and hope Hillary can rebound on her own. If she wins, he may come out shortly afterwards and exonerate her. If she loses, I think we are in for a few months of investigations.

Have there been any serious investigations of the relationships between HSBC, Loretta Lynch and James Comey?

As the US Attorney General for the Eastern District of New York, her office crafted a sweetheart deal for HSBC after they has been caught in the largest money laundering scheme in US history:

A few months later, James Comey is appointed to the HSBC Board of Directors:

Then there are major clients of HSBC contributing $81 million to the Clinton Foundation:

Let’s move on folks, there’s nothing to see here.

Has CAIR, that beacon of freedom, whined about this yet?

Will FBI Director Comey give immunity to Weiner and destroy his laptop?

If this was a setup to exonerate her I’m thinking it was a breath-takingly bad tactic to use Carlos Danger to do it with.

Apparent Carlos Danger had some of the emails in a folder named” Life Insurance “according to one sorcr.

Maybe Carlos rolled on his soon to be ex wife.He is facing hard time for his escapades with the 15 year old.
And we all thought that any sex scandal that took down Hillary would be Bills .

I think Comey had a heads up of what is in the future wikileaks to come and is now just trying to restore trust in the FBI and avoid a mutiny of his staff.
