Countdown to November 8: Clinton Relieved As Email Controversy “Resolved”

James Comey, the Director of the FBI, has just reported that it has arrived at the same conclusion that was reached in July – Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 emails, and the additional ones recently discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, have no traces of fraud, although she did use a private email server.

We are glad to see that he has found, as we were confident that he would, that he’s confirmed the conclusions that he reached in July,… And we’re glad that this matter is resolved.
– Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton’s campaign communications manager

Poll predictions claim that Clinton’s current 5-point lead over Trump would only increase as a result of the end of this major criminal investigation that has ended in Clinton’s favor. The Trump campaign has denounced the latest FBI announcement, claiming that Clinton is “protected” in America’s “rigged” election system, while further questioning the legitimacy of the FBI’s claims as such a large scale investigation arrived at a conclusion in just over a week – what exactly is the FBI’s role in the 2016 elections?

With Trump’s latest protester attack and his attempt to appeal to women by inviting a grieving mother who lost her son, a fervent Trump-supporter, in a car accident, to campaign for Trump for “Riley’s [son] sake” during one of his recent rallies, the polls have still not shown a significant positive increase in Trump’s predictions/votes, with Clinton maintaining the lead among minority groups and women.
