Comey's Disgrace - Redux

So, in a Sunday afternoon letter to Congress, Jim Comey, the disgraced head of the FBI tells Congress that Hillary is pure as driven snow.  She's clean as a whistle, and ready to assume the presidency.
FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Sunday the agency hasn’t changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails.
Thinking individuals don't believe that Hillary is innocent, but you can bet that's the way her supporters will interpret it.  She didn't do anything wrong, and she's glad to be cleared of wrongdoing.  They believe that she's the savior of the modern era.  It's all a simple misunderstanding.  She didn't intend to be extremely careless with state secrets.

If other reports are to be believed (and who can believed these days) there are still several other FBI investigations plodding along, waiting to see if she gets elected.

It boggles the mind.  There are several things that bother me about this investigation.  First, how does any agency review over 650,000 emails in eight days and make sense of what they're reviewing?   In the 192 hours, they would have to read, digest, discuss and evaluate 3385 emails per hour.  I'm not saying it can't be done, but it certainly stretches credulity. My credulity in particular.

Second, how does Comey's recommendation square with reports that Clinton had her maid printing out classified information?

Jim Comey's disgrace is now not about whether or not Clinton is eventually tried, convicted, and imprisoned.    But, Hillary is central to this story.    Comey has now instituted a two-tiered system of justice in the US, where the politically connected get a pass, while the lesser mortals are jailed.  That is his eternal disgrace.  Second, he inserted the Bureau twice into a political race without a satisfactory conclusion.  Everybody is frustrated with him, for no good reason.  He hasn't told us anything that we didn't know before, except that Clinton will get away with it.

If I ever have the opportunity, I'm going to piss on his shoes and tell him that it's raining.
