We now know that the several elements of the FBI, especially the New York Office, are manipulating this election in favor of Donald Trump, possibly in cahoots with Rudy Giuliani.
This is not FBI Director Comey releasing vague memos. Well, there is that, but it is not clear if Comey wrote that damaging memo because he wanted to hurt Clinton, or if it was because he was not fully in control of his agents and was trying to pre-empt a leak. What we now know is that several FBI agents, spread across the country but with a pernicious group in New York, are strong Trump supporters, and have been taking action to hurt Clinton and help Trump. The New York agents, in particular, seem to be doing so in cahoots with Trump Surrogate, syphilitic former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Behind the whole thing is Breitbart, the hard right wing crazies and conspiracy theorists, who took over the Trump Campaign a while back. And behind that, is Robert Mercer.
Robert Mercer, a billionaire hedge fund investor, is the main funding source for Breitbart. Robert Mercer also funds a major pro Trump super-pac. Breitbart and the super-pac have supplied the Trump campaign with their campaign manager, deputy campaign manager, and CEO. If Trump wins this election, Putin won't be the main guy in charge of the US. It will be Robert Mercer pulling the strings.
This group of unsavory characters and their colleagues are linked to the right wing organization known as the "Government Accountability Institute" which produced an anti-Clinton (both Clintons) book, which has apparently become the Conspiracy Bible for a number of FBI agents, who attempted to use this source as the basis to launch at least one investigation against Hillary Clinton. Higher level, relatively normal, FBI personnel put the kibosh on that effort, but the Trump supporting agents apparently continue to agitate against Clinton and in favor or Trump.
Comey's release of the memo was either an attempt to get ahead of those agents, whom he felt were going to send the info around anyway, or in support of these lower level efforts.
And all of this has a vague relationship to the concept of having sex with piles of hay, trees, and mulch. You'll have to watch this excellent report by Maddow to get that, and to link together all these details.
It is a long report but very much worth watching every minute:
We already know from [nope. No links from the Russians on this dite, please. I don't want to invite hackers. ]
This broadcast is a must watch. Incredible awful how American elections are being done today. It seems that various states and politicians in the world suffer from internal heatingprocesses. A look of these politicians in their own mirrors might do miracles, showing themselves their own worst ennemies. Timeout for a cooling down. Laren NH, Friday 4 November 2016, 21.47 PM Dutch time.
We have a saying in Dutch: "Wie een kuil graaft voor een ander valt er zelf in", translated: 'who digs a hole for some one else, will fall in it himself'. So we may wonder what will happen next. Some other powerful forces in the USA are not amused. Watch the broadcast. Will they keep quiet and stay quiet? The elections are in trumpoil, I mean turmoil. Laren NH, Friday 4 November 2016, 22.02. What will happen next?
The question to ask is who started all of this.....private server was set up by HRC.......nough said....
"B-b-b-but she started it."
What are you like five?
"private server was set up by HRC…….nough said…."
Your "point" is anything but valid. However, since you seem to be all butt hurt about it, I will assume that you were equally upset by the previous Secretaries of State who did the same thing? No? Oh yeah, they were Republican.
But I'm sure you were upset about the earlier presidential administration that set up a private server under the control of its national political party, then "lost" millions of emails that had been requested for an investigation? Oh, that was a Republican, so no, you aren't upset.
You aren't upset on principle, nor are you upset based on facts. You're simply another hypocrite from the right.
I think the folks who habitually misunderstand this issue and so easily blame Hillary have never worked in any capacity of responsibility for any government agency (including educational institutions).
For years, those of us who worked for major institutions of higher education, for example, used AOL, CompuServe, private servers, etc. because we could not get anything done otherwise.
private server was set up by HRC
Who knew that HRC was a computer system administrator before she got into politics!
Tu quoque is a logical fallacy. Thank you for playing, @notlurking.
So now we have an announcement that, just in the other investigations, nothing illegal appeared in the emails. We can only hope the necks of the mouth breathers on the right will snap from their whipping from support for Comey to berating him in the blink of an eye.
