It's Time, Mr. Comey

Austin Bay does the yeoman work that Comey should have done, putting together the relevant pieces of the puzzle, stitching together public information to show that Hillary Clinton is a criminal.  Plainly, a criminal.  Mr. Bay lays it all out plainly, then challenges Jim Comey to salvage what little bit is left of the reputation of the FBI.
What we’ll call the revelation of the BleachBit Timeline gives you a shot at redemption. The BleachBit Timeline documents obstruction of justice that you cannot ignore.
I've done investigations where I had to sit down in a quiet room with a legal pad and several different documents, to stitch together a timeline from different sources.  This often helps in understanding what happened, when, and what the motivations might have been.  It's called investigation.  As we read down Bay's timeline, we come to this inconvenient bit, that everyone is calling the "oh-shit" moment.
 “On March 25, 2015, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had a ‘conference call with President Clinton’s staff.’ Apparently, in the days following that call, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had an ‘oh shit moment’ when he realized he had forgotten to wipe the PRN server clean as he had been instructed to do back in December by Cheryl Mills.
Therefore, sometime within the 6 days after a call with ‘President Clinton’s Staff,’ that PRN server was wiped clean using BleachBit despite the subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi received weeks earlier on March 4, 2016.”
That looks like Obstruction of  Justice.  The very same thing that got most of Nixon's staff convicted and he himself to resign on the same day that Gerald Ford pardoned him.

Mr. Bay goes on to directly challenge Comey to do the right thing.  He lays out his reasoning, then closes with the challenge.
If you lack the character and guts to recommend indictment, then resign, sir. Resign.
