Hundreds and thousands…or two. It’s really all just fuzzy math. You know, science stuff.

“Investigators ultimately determined that two e-mail chains containing classified information were manually forwarded to Mr. Weiner’s account.”

And, according to other reporting, NONE of the e-mails in those two e-mail chains were marked as classified.

So, it would have been more accurate to note that "two e-mail chains that were not marked classified, but that were later determined to contain some classified information, had been manually forwarded to Mr. Weiner’s account.”

Yes, but “manually” forwarded them? Isn’t that of some interest?

Sorry, isn’t it of interest WHO did the forwarding?

And I’m curious as to whether the information was classified at the time the emails were sent.

Normally, when a person is under oath, relevant falsehoods are called perjury, not “mistakes” which can be corrected at a latter date.

Fixed.

Exactly - which is why I am surprised that many still credit Comey with being such an honorable professional. This isn’t a small error and someone of his stature doesn’t have the luxury of getting “mixed up.”

After what he has put this country through, Mr. Comey needs to publicly apologize to America and resign immediately. He should retire to some remote place and never show his face in public ever again.

As I recall, back at the time of the hearings there was a lot of confusing stuff about how some of the e-mails contained information that would “automatically” be considered “confidential” (a low level of classification). And on that basis the claim was being made that Hillary and/or her staff “should have known” that the information in the e-mails should have been treated as classified, despite the lack of any of markings, and even if no one in any government agency had ever asked that this particular document or the information contained in it be treated as classified. In other words, if you create a ridiculous enough standard, you’re gonna find so-called “violations.”

Trump just fired Comey.

And wasn’t this (whole gobs of classified e-mails) the predicate for Director Comey’s (really, Lordy, hard and nausea-inducing) decision to make his little ‘October Surprise’ a memo to the oh-so-incorruptible yet oddly leak-prone honorable gentleman from Utah?

Official end of any investigation of Trump/Russia, barring a independent counsel.

Pretty much.

Saturday Night Massacre comes to mind. Look how that turned out.

FBI getting to close to the White House on the Russia investigation?

Embarrassment over Comey’s recent Big Lie to Congress about Huma Abedin’s e-mail?

Or is it just that he served his purpose and now it’s time to hand it over to an outright Trump sycophant?

Something else?

Some combination of the above?
