Comey Factor Tuesday

1a

FBI Director James Comey was under attack from some of his own agents and members of Congress on Monday over his handling of an inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s emails, but the White House was remaining supportive, for now.

In stunning fashion, Comey has injected the Federal Bureau of Investigation, meant to be politically neutral, into the thick of the 2016 U.S. presidential race, making a series of announcements on the inquiry.

The latest was on Sunday, when he said the FBI stood by a July decision not to recommend criminal charges against the Democratic presidential candidate. Sunday’s announcement came days after Comey disclosed the FBI was examining a trove of newly discovered emails.

With the election coming on Tuesday, Comey’s statements and the FBI’s overall handling of the emails controversy has drawn fire from congressional Democrats, who criticized the agency for clouding Clinton’s campaign so close to the election, while Republicans questioned why the new inquiry ended so quickly.

FBI “field agents have felt the derivative impact of the criticism fired at Director Comey as a result of the Clinton email scandal,” said Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association Foundation, which represents more than 3,500 FBI agents.

He said some agents disapprove of Comey’s handling of the investigation and think he should resign, while others support him, but do not appreciate being in a political crossfire.

    I’ll wait till the Electoral College determines the next Prez, I voted permanent absentee to avoid standing in line. With the College in the mix anything can happen.

    Nice day out so I took the sticks for a walk. First up to the CUB for an errand, continuing to the end of Grimes Way and then back to the Hillside Cafe, all in 84 minutes. Could tell I haven’t been exercising enough. Just three birds out at the cattle stations.

    Day 3: 46+84=130 minutes.

    Just in case you want to stay up-to-the-minute with this election, you can cruise over to HUFFPO where it is updated every 30 seconds.

    So far it looks like rich boy is ahead, ugh.

    The night is young. It could move away from “rich boy” — VA just moved in HRC’s favor with 94.02% reporting.

    MI with only 27.58% reporting could still move to HRC but now it’s Orange Man 50.0% and HRC 45.1%

    In my book, neither one is any prize. We’re f**ked in the drive-through with either one of them…only for different reasons.

    Roller coaster ride from Hell with Satans minions at the controls, seat belts can’t save us now!

    What? I know it’s only 32.25% counted in WA state but the map shows The Evergreen State leaning to RED….49.6 Trump and 45.7 Clinton.

    Back to my novel about The Great War…

    The Morons have spoken!

    I would jump out my window but it is 3 feet to the ground, ouch anyway!

    OK try to blend in, buy lots of camo clothing…

  12. Den says:

    Lots of Nervous Nellie’s in the stock markets right now, on the brink of who-knows-what.

  13. Den says:

    Personally I need to let go and have another shot and hope when I awake the nightmare is over and just a faint hangover remains.

    Sailing To Philadelphia

    I am Jeremiah Dixon
    I am a Geordie boy
    A glass of wine with you, sir
    And the ladies I’ll enjoy
    All Durham and Northumberland
    Is measured up by my own hand
    It was my fate from birth
    To make my mark upon the earth

    He calls me Charlie Mason
    A stargazer am I
    It seems that I was born
    To chart the evening sky
    They’d cut me out for baking bread
    But I had other dreams instead
    This baker’s boy from the west country
    Would join the Royal Society

    We are sailing to Philadelphia
    A world away from the coaly Tyne
    Sailing to Philadelphia
    To draw the line
    A Mason-Dixon Line

    Now you’re a good surveyor, Dixon
    But I swear you’ll make me mad
    The West will kill us both
    You gullible Geordie lad
    You talk of liberty
    How can America be free
    A Geordie and a baker’s boy
    In the forests of the Iroquois

    Now hold your head up, Mason
    See America lies there
    The morning tide has raised
    The capes of Delaware
    Come up and feel the sun
    A new morning has begun
    Another day will make it clear
    Why your stars should guide us here

    We are sailing to Philadelphia
    A world away from the coaly Tyne
    Sailing to Philadelphia
    To draw the line
    A Mason-Dixon Line

    Nate Silver has some explaining to do.

    I wonder how many Brexit-type surprises are lurking around the world.
