The FBI dropped a bombshell on Hillary Clinton's campaign today by announcing that they were reopening their investigation into Hillary's e-mail scandal based on new e-mails they had discovered on one of former Rep. Anthony Weiner's electronic devices. Weiner is the husband of Hillary's top aide and confidant Huma Abedin, and the FBI has been investigating him over allegations he sexted a minor.
According to the New York Times, FBI Director James Comey felt the new evidence from Weiner warranted the revived investigation on Hillary, just 11 days before the Nov. 8 election.
Now here's another shocker.
CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller reported that President Obama had no prior notice that the FBI was going to make this announcement. And the Loretta Lynch was equally blindsided. According to an NBC alert reported by Breaking News, the Department of Justice wasn't notified either.
That's especially noteworthy because of the close ties between the White House, the DOJ, and Hillary, as well as Comey's repeated insistence — as he was grilled by House Republicans in July — that there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute Hillary. Comey's persistence led many to believe that he was in Hillary's pocket. But now he's firing flaming cannonballs at her campaign.
What do you think about this?
