HOWARD FINEMAN ON JAMES COMEY: His carefully maintained nonpolitical image is now starting to fray.

Seeking to protect his reputation for impartiality, the FBI director instead revealed his obsession with politics: the politics of his own image.

He sent Congress a vaguely worded letter about how the bureau had come across new information that “appeared to be pertinent” to the “completed” investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

It soon became clear what he was talking about: emails, the contents of which the FBI hadn’t seen, on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The decision for a new investigation, he said in an internal letter that was quickly leaking, was an agonizing one ― though not nearly as agonizing as it was to the presidential campaign of the woman he had put back in his sights.

Hillary Clinton is, as ever, a victim of sinister forces.

David Burge nails it.
