Trump sneers at FBI’s latest flip
Donald Trump sneered at the FBI's director decision on Sunday night, telling his supporters in Michigan that he rejects the bureau's latest move to exonerate Hillary Clinton.

FBI director James Comey had told members of Congress hours earlier that his agency had reviewed 650 000 emails in just days, but was not changing its earlier view that Clinton had been careless but not criminal in using a private email server.
The new trove, discovered on a laptop belonging to sex pest Anthony Weiner, had reinforced Comey’s July 5 decision to let her off the hook. The announcement points to a cover-up, Trump and his supporters say.
Trump was incredulous at the FBI’s ability to review all the new material made available to them in such a short time. “You can’t review 650 000 new emails in eight days! You can’t do it, folks!” Trump exclaimed.
“The rank-and-file special agents in the FBI won’t let her get away with her terrible crimes – including the deletion of 33,000 emails after receiving a congressional subpoena. Right now she’s being protected by a rigged system!” Trump told a huge crowd in the Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights.
“The investigations into her crimes will go on for a long, long time,” he said.
“Hillary Clinton is guilty, she knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it is up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8,” he added.
Comey’s decision means the Democratic presidential nominee will not be charged with a crime related to her mishandling of thousands of classified documents on a homebrew email server she had set up while serving as secretary of state. WikiLeaks have exposed how the Clintons accept money from foreign powers.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz fist tweeted out the latest bombshell news Sunday afternoon, even before FBI Director Comey released a letter that said the investigation was now closed, pointing to more insider wrangling. Comey’s initial letter last month revealed that agents were reviewing the newly discovered email and forced the director to announce an investigation.
The investigation was reopened on October 28, when it was revealed that Weiner was sending sexually explicit messages to a minor. Hillary’s emails were found on Weiner’s laptop, but no explanations were forthcoming from Clinton or her surrogates.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus issued a statement reminding voters that the Clinton’s charity was still under FBI investigation: “None of this changes the fact that the FBI continues to investigate the Clinton Foundation for corruption involving her tenure as secretary of state. Hillary Clinton should never be president.”
In the latest twist, the former secretary of state, Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out documents containing classified information. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance. Clinton nevertheless expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets.
Trump could win in Michigan, a traditionally blue state that is expected to flip on Tuesday. He appealed to African-American and Latino voters, labor union members and other traditional Democratic constituencies.
