FBI sifting through 650,000 emails… could take WEEKS…



For those Trumpers who believe that Hillary going to be imprisoned before the election, the Wall Street Journal has some bad news – it’s going to take weeks to just get through the emails:

As federal agents prepare to scour roughly 650,000 emails to see how many relate to a prior probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use, the surprise disclosure that investigators were pursuing the potential new evidence lays bare building tensions inside the bureau and the Justice Department over how to investigate the Democratic presidential nominee.

Metadata found on the laptop used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, suggests there may be thousands of emails sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter. It will take weeks, at a minimum, to determine whether those messages are work-related from the time Ms. Abedin served with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe.

The FBI has had to await a court order to begin reviewing the emails, because they were uncovered in an unrelated probe of Mr. Weiner.

I don’t understand why it’s the Trump campaign’s strategy to pretend that there’s a smoking gun already and they’re sizing her up for a prison jumpsuit. Yes, it damages her in these pivotal days where non-committal voters are making their final decision, but won’t it blow up in their faces if it turns out to be nothing?
