The spincter muscles of the Hillary Clinton campaign have to puckering fiercely right now after FBI Director James Comey announced the reopening of investigation into Clinton's email server.
The Washington Post reported:
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 Adebin, 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.Besides that, the FBI has Clinton's backup device that is sought in a FOIA request by Judicial Watch. The device is called a "Datto device", according to Breitbart.com in an October 13 article. If there are classified materials (or other evidence of wrongdoing) on that device on top of what may be found in Weiner's computer, this could torpedo the Clinton campaign.
FBI Director Comey has been under intense fire for his mishandling of the investigation. This may be an effort to salvage his career. A "Hail Mary!" pass, perhaps?
