As pointed out by Alex Pfeiffer, at dailycaller.com, the leftward media are scared enough of the new email probe to immediately suggest that James Comey – the same James Comey who contorted the law to protect Hillary Clinton just months ago – is trying to toss it to Donald Trump.
Here is a sampling of tweets Mr. Pfeiffer bases this on:
Dropping a letter full of portent but lacking any information 10 days before the election seems like a wild abuse of power, but ymmv.*
FBI statement almost irresponsible in its brevity.
If we don’t hear more from Comey, we just have to conclude that he was trying to swing election. And *that* should be the story.
And that’s just three. There are more.
Here’s a possibility these gentlemen may not have considered: what if Comey has been advised that the next few rounds of Wikileaks is going to contain emails that are found on Ms. Abedin/Mr. Weiner’s electronic devices, and will identify them as such. What if they contain incriminating information? And what if Mr. Comey is then put in front of a house committee to explain why, since he was investigating Weiner and therefore HAD these emails, he WITHHELD them until the election was over? Then it is his backside in a sling, not Hillary Clinton’s.
Think about that, guys.
*In case you were wondering, “ymmv” is an acronym for “your mileage may vary”, and is used as an idiom to mean you may have a different take on this than I do.
