The foul ball was when he din’t indict in July when he should have.
Something big is going to come out of these emails. He’s not that stupid that he would throw this out a week before the election if he didn’t have something important. He might have been content to let it go, but possibly he feared being scooped by wiki-leaks.October 30, 2016 at 8:55 pm #24429edselehrParticipant
Okay, let’s dissect that last Bacon post:
“Something big is going to come out of these emails.”
The Right has been saying that for a couple years now. Even the Comey-lead FBI couldn’t find anything valid to charge her with. Just because the right is very good at believing its own bullshit doesn’t make it true.
“He’s not that stupid that he would throw this out a week before the election if he didn’t have something important.”
No, he’s that partisan, or that concerned about his self-image amongst his Republican golfing buddies in Washington. Ambition often trumps intelligence.
“He might have been content to let it go, but possibly he feared being scooped by wiki-leaks.”
Wow – if true, wouldn’t even you agree that an FBI director who’s afraid of WikiLeaks shouldn’t be FBI director anymore?October 31, 2016 at 9:01 am #24434AmusParticipant
This is not another drip from the vast right wing conspiracy.
I’m not sure what your definition of “vast” is, but $100 Million of taxpayers money on fishing expeditions sounds kind of excessive to me.
But you’re certain this time is when we finally get a return on investment!!

Mr. James Comey
November 2, 2016
I am the 15-year-old (now 16) who was the victim of Anthony Weiner. I now add you to the list of people who have victimized me. I told my story originally to protect other young girls that might be a victim of online predators.
Your letter to Congress has now brought this whole matter back into the media spotlight. Not even 10 minutes after being forensically interviewed with the FBI for seven hours, I received a phone call from a REPORTER asking for a statement. Why didn’t you communicate with the local FBI agents that I had just spoken to? They could have scheduled our interview sooner or scheduled a time to interview me later, or change locations of the interview. My neighborhood has been canvassed by reporters asking for details about me.
In your letter, you chose to use a vague approach, meaning the media had to keep searching to try and find out what evidence you had uncovered and how. Every media outlet from local to national has contacted me and my family to get my “story.” Why couldn’t your letter have waited until after the election, so I would not have to be the center of attention the last week of the election cycle?
In his “cooperation” with you and with his love of the spotlight, Anthony Weiner has given information that led to the media finding me. You have assisted him in further victimizing me on every news outlet. I can only assume that you saw an opportunity for political propaganda.
I thought your job as FBI Director was to protect me. I thought if I cooperated with your investigation, my identity as a minor would be kept secret. That is no longer the case. My family and I are barraged by reporters’ phone calls and emails. I have been even been blamed in a newspaper for causing Donald Trump to now be leading in some polls and costing Hillary the election.
Anthony Weiner is the abuser. Your letter helped that abuse to continue. How can I rebuild my life when you have made finding out my “story” the goal of every reporter? When I meet with my therapist next time, she will already know what we are going to talk about before I get there by reading Friday, October 28th, 2016’s New York Times article.
I may have been Weiner’s victim, but the real story here is that I am a survivor. I am strong, intelligent, and certain that I will come out from under this nightmare, but it will not be as a result of your doing your job to protect me. I hope that by making my letter to you public, you will think about how your actions affect the victims of the crimes you are investigating. The election is important, yes, but what happened to me and how it makes me feel and how others see me, is much more important. It’s time that the FBI Director puts his victims’ rights above political views.

Yeah, I don’t think he has much of a future at the Bureau.
