NY Daily News On Comey Flub: Now He Tells Us

The New York Daily News is just about as outraged as the rest of America over FBI Director James Comey's late in the game intrusion into the election followed by an "oopsie."

After nearly upending an already-raucous presidential election with an eleventh-hour reexamination of Clinton’s emails, Comey sent a letter to congressional lawmakers that left heads spinning once again.

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” Comey wrote, referencing his recommendation to not press charges for Clinton’s use of a private email server. “I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short period of time.”

Comey’s letter came nine days after a controversial note to Congress revealed the FBI was at it again, probing Clinton emails after discovering new messages tied to the latest sexting scandal involving disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner — the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Comey’s last-minute meddling generated immediate calls for his ouster amid charges that he could have affected the outcome of a close presidential election. Indeed, polls showed Clinton losing support — some surveys showed her falling more than 8 percentage points — over the issue in the crucial final days before Election Day. Millions of people in early-voting states have already made up their minds and cast ballots, with the first Comey letter being their last impression before making their decisions.
