Super-slime! The FBI’s Clinton and Weiner investigation streams have officially crossed


**Written by Doug Powers

Early Friday afternoon, FBI Director James “she didn’t intend to do it” Comey sent this letter notifying Congress that the Clinton investigation has been reopened:

What’s that all about? Well, the thought-to-be-closed investigation into Hillary’s shady email practices has collided with the investigation into the perverted husband of Clinton’s top aide to form one, giant, super slimy investigation:

Federal law enforcement officials said Friday that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Mrs. Clinton, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.

The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related to the Clinton case — one federal official said they numbered in the thousands — potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.

In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said that emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, and that they “appear to be pertinent to the investigation.”

Mr. Comey said the F.B.I. was taking steps to “determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”

The buried lede here is that investigators found a Clinton-related mobile device that hadn’t yet been hammered into oblivion.

This is quite the Algonquin Round Table of sleazeballs that Democrats seem very excited about putting (back) into the White House.
