His announcement came in a letter to congressional lawmakers two days before Election Day.
In a normal election, the FBI and WikiLeaks factors might be disqualifying for a presidential candidate. As final evidence of how bad are our choices in 2016, Trump’s liabilities, especially on foreign policy, outweigh hers.
His action represents a dreadful mistake that does not serve the American public or the best interest of his agency. It may set a bad precedent for involvement of the FBI in a political campaign.
Senior FBI officials were informed about the discovery of new emails potentially relevant to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server at least two weeks before Director James Comey notified Congress, according to federal officials familiar with the investigation.

WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton’s campaign accused FBI Director James Comey of applying a double standard by disclosing a renewed inquiry into her emails, an hour after the Justice Department offered a bare-bones promise to lawmakers that it would act “expeditiously” to settle the matter. Clinton campaign officials seized on a CNBC report, citing an unnamed former FBI official, that Comey balked at joining with U.S. intelligence agencies Oct. 7 when they blamed Russia for hacking the email systems of U.S. political figures and organizations – including the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign chairman – because it was too close to Election Day.

Dramatic videos of deadly law enforcement encounters and the absence of reliable data about how often police use force contribute to a regrettable narrative that “biased police are killing black men at epidemic rates,” FBI Director James Comey said Sunday. That story line has formed amid a lack of comprehensive, national data about how many citizens are killed or injured at the hands of police officers.
FBI Director James Comey told Congress on Tuesday that his agency granted immunity to Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff because agents wanted to inspect her laptop as part of a now-closed FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.
Think of it this way: A President Hillary Clinton is the only thing standing in the way of a President Donald Trump.
This election could have one of the lowest turnouts in modern times. That would be a sad outcome, especially in a time when, as Obama pointed out, America is far more popular and respected around the globe than many Americans, such as Trump, believe.
He did not want the FBI director to end up as the arbiter of the 2016 presidential election.
Summoned before Congress and aggressively questioned by Republicans, FBI Director James Comey on Thursday strongly defended the government’s decision to not prosecute Hillary Clinton over her private email setup. He said there was no evidence that she knew that anything she was doing was against the law or had lied to federal investigators.
This wasn’t a close call: Not only wasn’t Comey recommending prosecution – he was saying that any prosecutor who did so would be unreasonable.
