You’ve Got Mail

On Friday, FBI Director James Comey notified Congress of newly discovered e-mails in a separate case which may be “pertinent” to the Clinton e-mail investigation.

Many outlets reported this as a re-opening (a term the FBI has not used) of the Clinton case while Donald Trump himself responded Clinton’s corruption “is on a scale that we’ve never seen before.”

The reality is: this latest “revelation” is likely absolutely nothing.

100 Days of Summer

The Desolation of Smaug

The first 2016 presidential debate was like watching a political role-play of Greedo shaking down Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. By the end of the night, Clinton walked away tossing a coin to moderator Lester Holt saying “Sorry about the mess.”
