RUSH: “Comey is just doing this to take everybody’s attention off of the WikiLeaks email dump. He’s gonna make everybody think for the next three or four days that there’s really something to be forthcoming here. I mean, opening the investigation, reopening it is a big deal. He knows that everybody’s gonna say, ‘Wow! There must be something brand-new that’s dynamite. There must be something that’s gonna just end it for her.'”
And then everybody focuses on what it is, and they drop reporting the WikiLeaks scandal, which is starting to have negative impact on the Clintons. The WikiLeaks scandal right now is starting to hurt because it’s exposing the fraud and the hustling and the collusion and the corruption that’s going on at the Clinton Foundation. You start messing around with things that are supposed to be charitable to serve humanity, you end up profiting personally from it, that’s easy to understand. Everybody knows that’s not nice.
Everybody understands that you are not supposed to get rich off of a charity, and the news here is that the Clintons have done that and are doing that. That’s easy to understand. So, as Hillary starts plummeting in the polls — eight points down in the Washington Post — riding to the rescue is the Lone Ranger, James Comey, announcing that they’re reopening the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Everybody stops talking about what is easily portrayed and is easily understandable in the WikiLeaks story and starts speculating on what Comey and the FBI are doing.
All the while, nobody knows.
That’s the cynical view. The cynical view is that Comey is still carrying water for Clinton and is trying to get everybody to stop paying attention to the WikiLeaks dump because it’s starting to have an impact. So you announce you’re opening the inquiry, get everybody all hot and bothered and focused on it, and then after three or four or five days, announce that it was a false alarm, nothing to see here. The investigation is now officially over — and, meanwhile, in that five-day period everybody’s forgotten about be WikiLeaks.
