Discussion: DOJ Promises Lawmakers Quick Response To New Clinton-Related Emails

A light in the tunnel

How about somebody ask the FBI for some disclosure on possible foreign interference with our election because I really care far more about that than I do any more Hillary Clinton email.

I want to know what the FBI knows about Russia and Trump and I want to know soonest.

At this point there had better be a round the clock effort to determine anything of importance and a full accounting to the public of what is discovered - or ruled out - prior to the end of this week.

An apology to the nation for this fiasco and perhaps a resignation or two would be nice as well, but I won’t hold my breath waiting on those.

Not to mention that Comey refused to disclose the ongoing investigation of Russian hacking, saying “Octobe 8” is too close to the election, but somehow October 28th is not???

The two “weapons” the GOP has are doubt and actual “wrongdoing”. Right now, the former is much more effective. Dealing with it swiftly will have a great deal of upside for Hill at this point. Reminds me of the guy with the blowtorch in the film “Barbershop”, when the torch was cut off.

Imagine that these emails are nothings (duplicates, routine messages, etc.)…and then imagine an aroused Democratic Party on the eve of the most important election in our lifetimes.

Yeah that’s my point and also why isn’t this far more important for the public to know than the email that apparently the FBI doesn’t even know the content of yet.

Come the fuck on - I think foreign interference in our election is way more important.

“The Department will continue to work closely with the FBI and together, dedicate all necessary resources and take appropriate steps as expeditiously as possible.”

A separate letter from the FBI promised:

Director Comey will fully clarify this issue, and answer all questions, in a live press conference.

On November 9.

A quick response isn’t going to gain much traction in the GOP fever swamps…

This letter was sent TO six United States Senators, including Senators Leahy, Carper, Feinstein and Cardin.
That “TO” means a lot right now.

Wading through Anthony Weiner’s email must be a trip. That would take a while, I’m sure.

And don’t forget the ‘attachments.’

Seems like you would need some kind of digital Lysol or Penicillin…

Not a bit…I agree with you. But bear in mind that people like Sam Wang are aware of the fluctuations of the naysayer voters and the doubter voters…who have been the ones who got Hill’s support to what it was after the Debates. Some of Trump’s “gain” has been regression towards the mean. Because of Comey-gate, we will lose a few more people.

But we will make up enough to win comfortably.

Yeah, sure. There is no “quick” response quick enough to put the spotlight back onto Putin’s useful idiot.

I wish LBJ had emails we could wade through. Did you ever here the tape of him telling his tailor to lower the crotch on his pants? Awesome.

This reads like a boilerplate response from a lawmaker’s office to a constituent. “I will keep your thoughts on this matter in mind as I continue to work on this important issue.”

Good. I have a lot more faith in the DOJ than the FBI at present.

How about finding out who these rogue FBI agents are and firing them on the spot for unprofessional behavior? Just completely unacceptable conduct on their part.
