This is really serious stuff - of course, since Comey seems to be part of the endeavor to take down Clinton, he won't do much, but any actual leader should be on the mic RIGHT NOW talking about how indefensible it is, and within the organization heads should be rolling.

But they won't.
They should be appointing a special prosecutor to investigate COMEY (and on down the line).
Giuliani isn't a member of the press. Put him before a grand jury and ask him questions about who leaked to him, who tattled to them, etc., etc.

I'd like to see (or hear about) Mr. Verbnoun911 squirm.
Yes please. :pray:

In fact, Baier said, after checking with his sources, there is no evidence at this time for either statement.
But, as Kellyanne has told us, that doesn't matter. Once people hear it, they can't/don't/won't un-hear it.
So it becomes fact.

on approximately Walter Cronkite's birthday, this all just hurts my soul.

"not changed our conclusions" - Trumpkins will think that says SHE IS GUILTY!!!, Hillbots will think that says SHE IS INNOCENT!!!

From: Barack H. Obama, President of the United States of America
To: James B. Comey, Director Federal Bureau of Investigation

Dear Director Comey:

I have reviewed your actions regarding the handling of the investigation into the emails sent and received by Secretary Hillary Clinton. My conclusion remains the same. You fucked up big time and you are fired.

Best regards,

In all honesty I have lost a great deal of respect for the FBI. I wonder how many others have too.

I have totally lost respect for the FBI. I am all for what Sugar says about "promoting" the members of Trumplandia to varied positions in scattered places. That rat's nest needs to be broken up.

Nikita had a place in the middle of his country that needed populating. I don't expect Putin to provide such accommodations for certain members of the FBI once Hillary takes office.

The market has not been happy with a possible Trump administration and a lot of folks have moved to cash positions and to gold as always in a time of uncertainty. When Hillary gets over the EV hump, we can expect a big happy day for the market as well as an anxious international community.

Best way to bet on the election is to buy S&P Indexes Monday about an hour before close. (The Indexes will jump in price tomorrow morning and then poop out by the end of the day. They will go up a little on Tuesday and go nuts Wednesday morning.)

I've lost a lot of respect for the NYC office and much of the leadership, though I still have a great deal of respect for the vast majority of the agents and the work hey do. It saddens me a lot, though. I've often wished that I had known as much about crime and world politics as I do know (which, admittedly, still isn't all that much) and had been able to be on an educational and career track that would have allowed me to work in an analytical position for the FBI or CIA. (I have no desire to be an actual cop or spy, but I would have loved being able of be one of the people who helps bring all the information together to figure out what it means....)

Actually, the FBI is more like a bunch of CPAs and accountants with guns than it is cops with college degrees. They have always been much stronger as an investigatory agency than enforcement. They are at the top of their game when they are digging through esoteric financial records or analyzing forensic evidence or negotiating for the release of hostages. When they are involved in foot chases, gun battles or felony take-down arrests, not so much.

Those are the kind of things I'd've been most interested in doing - the more mental aspects rather than the physical :)
