In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation … 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. …” – FBI Director James Comey

ACCORDING TO NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Abigail Williams, a producer for NBC covering the State Department, State was not notified of Director James Comey‘s letter that was sent to select congressional leaders.

NBC’s justice correspondent Pete Williams said the “law enforcement sources” told him that this new comment by Comey is not about the main email server investigation, which Andrea Mitchell also confirmed.

In 1992, Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger was indicted just a few days before Election Day for lying to prosecutors about Iran-Contra.

Democrats and Republicans may want clarification but Director Comey is not obliged to give any. There is no reason not to take his statement at face value, though no one is.

It’s being reported that at the bottom of this story is — wait for it — Anthony Weiner’s sexting.

One thing that’s factually incorrect is that the Clinton email server investigation is not being “reopened,” which is being incorrectly reported by Rep. Chaffetz, as well as ABC News. It’s never been closed because it takes time for these things to official shut down.

As the reporting stands right now, Comey’s new statement does not relate to the main email server investigation. It’s “well outside the bounds” of Clinton’s initial email server investigation, according to Pete Williams.

When Hillary Clinton and her team heard about it, they were on a plane with no wifi, so everyone got hit with the news when they landed in Iowa.

Senate Republicans on the Judiciary Committee had no idea this was coming and Comey’s letter is not a response to anything they have asked about, according to reporting.

There could have been “a device” found, according to Williams, and the FBI must ascertain whether there are classification issues with the emails on this device. We now know that device(s) is Anthony Weiner’s.

The Russian Wikileaks email hack and dissemination of private emails told us a couple of very good things about Hillaryland. When it came to Secretary Clinton’s private email server decision and usage, John Podesta, Robby Mook and Neera Tanden were caught completely flatfooted about its existence and its use.

Their comments about Hillary’s decision to utilize a private server are classic. Tanden’s remarks could keep her from the rumored chief of staff position that’s been floated.

What should worry every Democrat is whether Hillary Clinton learned the lesson.

With Director Comey’s announcement today, one thing seems clear.

Republican hyperbole will be on scorch for the duration.

Politically, this is a nightmare October bombshell that will not be solved or closed anytime before the election, which means HRC and her team will be asked about it over and over again.

At the bottom of this story, there is nothing new directed from Comey towards Hillary Clinton over her private server.

It won’t sound like that on cable or talk radio.
