According to CNN, the White House says they didn’t know the FBI was reopening the investigation into Hillary emails until they saw it on the media!

You know, I believe that actually. In fact I’m betting Loretta Lynch may not have known either or she’d have tried to put the kibosh on this.
There is a serious pressure campaign on Comey right now. I’ve already heard the same talking points from several different people, including the campaign spokesperson:
POLITICO – Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta on Friday called on FBI Director James Comey to immediately release more details about the new evidence it is reviewing as part of its probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server at the State Department.
He also expressed frustration at the timing of the letter from Comey to lawmakers, informing them of the new evidence.
“It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election,” he wrote, adding, “The Director owes it to the American people to immediately provide the full details of what he is now examining. We are confident this will not produce any conclusions different from the one the FBI reached in July.”
That’s exactly what they are all saying right now, which means Hillary is PISSED that this just happened and they are trying to pressure Comey to undo it.
