...one week before the elections. Makes you wonder what kind of government position or bribe the head of the FBI was offered. I also wonder whether the Clinton campaign team was smart enough to save some ammo for the last stretch.

The Clinton's are above the law. History has shown us this multiple times.

I don't expect anything to come of this before the election and even if it comes after, it'll be swept under the rug like everything else regardless of if she wins/loses.

Rich people and people with a lot of political influence are very often above the law, especially in the US. Clinton and Trump both exploit that fact.

Wouldn't surprise me if the Trump campaign are getting desperate and trying to bribe their way into office. They've already shown absolute disdain for democracy and the law.

That said, this isn't anything to do with the Clinton servers. That was just a Republican that made a hasty tweet. These emails are from an aide to Clinton, the wife of Anthony Weiner. Apparently the e-mails don't mention Clinton nor do they come from the server.

Perhaps the fact that Clinton's emails are again the topic of discussion less than two weeks before the election is not the work of a corrupt FBI, but of a corrupt DNC who decided that the worst candidate in their party's history had to be their nominee for President come hell or high water. Perhaps by not factoring in the potential influence their announcement would have on the election result, the FBI is just being impartial, like it's supposed to.

... Read the topic. They're only the subject because of misinformation by a Republican representative. The emails in question aren't from the server, nor do they have anything to do with Clinton. 

I also think calling the FBI impartial when they're against Clinton, but corrupt when they dare clear them, is a bit hypocritical. Stick to one or the other. Don't flip-flop like some damn radical :p

"Serio"... Read the topic. They're only the subject because of misinformation by a Republican representative. The emails in question aren't from the server, nor do they have anything to do with Clinton. 

That doesn't really provide me with any reason to believe that the Trump campaign bribed the Director of the FBI, does it?

And when did I say they were corrupt for clearing them? Do you have any more fictional accusations to make while you're at it?

I said I wouldn't be surprised. The man has encouraged voter fraud and intimidation. He's also known to embezzle, and a potential sex offender. Not a long shot that he might be willing to put bribes in a few places to get his way.

[quote="Emperor Benedictine"]And when did I say they were corrupt for clearing them? Do you have any more fictional accusations to make while you're at it?

Again, I didn't say you were. It's a generalized statement. I've seen others go "FBI IS SO GLORIOUS GOING AFTER HILLARY" but then stopping up and calling the FBI corrupt when they clear them.

Neither of the candidates have exactly covered themselves in glory during this campaign. It's at the point where one has difficulty telling the difference between The Onion and the actual debates. You've got a madman and a liar, and neither of them are particularly good at hiding it.

Mind you, as far as the emails go we're talking about a failure that shouldn't have been possible. If you've got sensitive information in your email system why in god's name can you send that information to an arbitrary server?

Don't get me wrong. I'm no fan of Clinton, either, but she'd do a heck of a lot less damage than Trump. I only got genuinely concerned once I started digging into Trump's past. The man's a pathological liar and a creep. Never worked a day in his life, and all his fame is from a reality TV show. Add to that his threats of imposing strict press laws on par with Turkey and China, and imprisoning his political opponents, and there's no bloody way he should be allowed anywhere near the big red button.

It is a bit odd, to be fair. You'd imagine someone with as much experience with the system as Clinton would know not to handle information like that. Worst case? Gross incompetence. Even if Clinton ends up winning, there's no way the debate ends. It won't end until the RNC's demand that the server be made public is fulfilled, which... Will likely never happen.
