So Republican FBI Director WON’T name Russia as the one’s responsible for hacking the US because……..
It would be too close to the election – 4 weeks ago……
WILL name Hillary Clinton as investigating E mails found on her aide’s husband’s laptop because…..
Well………he needs to be transparent…….
‘FBI Director James Comey argued privately that it was too close to Election Day for the United States government to name Russia as meddling in the U.S. election and ultimately ensured that the FBI’s name was not on the document that the U.S. government put out, a former bureau official tells CNBC’.
‘The official said some government insiders are perplexed as to why Comey would have election timing concerns with the Russian disclosure but not with the Huma Abedin email discovery disclosure he made Friday’.
‘May not use their official authority or influence to interfere with an election’
Writing a letter to Congress claiming he found more E mails – E mails no one had read – is using his ‘official authority’ to interfere with an election.
So what changed after the FBI tried to influence the election.
Hillary lost AZ, OH, FL and ME to toss up. 61 electoral votes.
And she lost GA & KY to Trump. 24 electoral votes.
Trump is finally over 100 electoral votes.
Even if Trump sweeps ALL the toss ups, he still comes up short.
He would still need 20 electoral votes and they would have to come from states that and secure in Clinton’s camp.
If Hillary were to win ANY of the toss up States, Trump can’t make up the losses.
So while the total has fallen back from approaching 400, unless the FBI Director just makes up more fake ‘news’, Hillary is the next President.
