And you thought House of Cards was fiction: FBI re-opens Clinton email investigation

You thought House of Cards was fiction didn’t you? Well, you were wrong, it is actually a documentary.

The FBI, under severe criticism for shelving Clinton’s email investigation earlier in the?year has announced they have re-opened the investigation 10 days out from the November 8 election.

Newly discovered emails found on a computer seized during an investigation of disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner have prompted the FBI to make new inquiries related to Hillary Clinton?s private email server, according to three people familiar with the deliberations.

FBI Director James B. Comey informed congressional leaders Friday that the agency would take ?appropriate investigative steps? to determine whether the newly discovered emails contain classified information and to assess their importance to the Clinton server probe.

The emails were found on a computer used jointly by both Weiner and his wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, according to a person with knowledge of the inquiry. Federal officials have been examining Weiner?s alleged sexually suggestive online messages with a teenage girl. The link to the Weiner probe was first reported by the New York Times.

Comey?s announcement appears to restart the FBI?s probe of Clinton?s server, which previously ended in July with no charges.

The announcement, coming less than two weeks before the presidential election, could reshape a campaign that Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has been leading in public polls. It was immediately hailed by Republican nominee Donald Trump, who, told supporters at a New Hampshire rally that, ?perhaps, finally, justice will be done.?

#weinerleaks is now trending in the US.

Officials familiar with the inquiry said it was too early to assess the significance of the newly discovered emails. It is possible, they said, that some or all of the correspondence is duplicative of the emails that were already turned over and examined by the FBI.

In a brief letter to congressional leaders, Comey said that the FBI, in connection with an ?unrelated case,? had recently ?learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the Clinton investigation.?

Comey wrote that he had been briefed on the new material Thursday. ?I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,? he wrote.

An FBI spokesman on Friday declined to elaborate, and a spokesman for Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch declined to comment.

Between the?bought media and dodgy FBI chief we are seeing the dirtiest election ever…and it is all Democrat driven.

Looks like some people may need to do some remedial reading on whether or not a President can be indicted while in office. The short version is that they can.

I guess we better start looking a bit more closely at Vice President candidate Tim Kaine. House of Cards seems to be coming true.
