Trump supporters are in an outrage as Comey announced that Hillary is basically off the hook again.
The FBI has announced it will not make any changes to its July decision on Hillary Clinton’s emails, meaning the Democratic nominee will not be charged.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz tweeted out the massive news on Sunday afternoon.
‘FBI Dir just informed us “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Sec Clinton”,’ Chaffetz wrote.
Here’s the tweet:

Speaking to reporters with Clinton in Cleveland, Ohio, Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri confirmed the camp had seen Comey’s letter.
‘We have seen Director Comey’s latest letter to the Hill. We are glad to see that he has found, as we were confident that he would, that he has confirmed the conclusion that he reached in July, and we’re glad that this matter is resolved,’ Palmieri said.
The investigation was reopened on October 28 – sparked by a DailyMail.com story that revealed Anthony Weiner was sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl. The emails in question were found on Weiner’s laptop.
Reacting to the news shortly after 4pm, Donald Trump claimed Hillary in being protected by a ‘rigged system’.
Wow. You can bet there will be outrage on Twitter and vague apprehensiveness on the streets.

I have no idea what is going on at the FBI, but Comey is surely destroying their credibility completely through his actions. The only question is whether all those reports to right wing media about “furious” FBI agents were a smokescreen, because if they were real, we’ll surely hear repercussions from it.
