Rush Called it: Comey Retracts one week later Update: So did Conservative Treehouse

On Oct 28th at Hot Air Allah­pun­dit reported this reac­tion by Rush con­cern­ing the Comey Let­ter #1

His idea of how this is going to go is that Comey will come back a week from now and announce that the new inves­ti­ga­tion is over, no wrong­do­ing was found, and Hillary Clin­ton is free and clear again. That’s pos­si­ble, I guess, but if the feds were that close to resolv­ing this, Comey could have sim­ply waited until they’d reached a con­clu­sion and then announced the whole thing in one shot

One week later the Drudge Headline

CON­FUSED COMEY CLEARS HER AGAIN!

This dropped Sun­day after­noon just in time so that every sin­gle news­pa­per can lead with it on Mon­day and the entire MSM can cruse with it on Tuesday

I guess I was right both about the last minute Hillary dump and Comey still being in the tank but wrong about his worry about the FBI ‘s rep­u­ta­tion. Or it could be a case of pulling a Chief Jus­tice Roberts in the face of lib­eral anger.

But either way Rush saw it and called it. The ques­tion is did Comey wait to long for the pivot to re-​save the day??

Update 3 thoughts:

  1. It’s amaz­ing how fast a Fed­eral gov­ern­ment agency can go through a half mil­lion emails when the full force of the MSM and the left is attack­ing you isn’t it?
  2. And not just the MSM and the left, a lot of very rich and con­nected peo­ple gave mil­lions to the Clin­ton foun­da­tion, you didn’t expect them to let their invest­ments go to waste with­out a fight did you?
  3. This is all about depress­ing and Demor­al­iz­ing trump vot­ers and reas­sur­ing scared Hillary vot­ers, while it might help with the first, I can’t think of any­thing that will get them more furi­ous or more con­vinced the fix is in.

Update 2: Rush wasn’t the only one to see this coming

A solid argu­ment can be made that FBI Direc­tor Comey is yet again help­ing the Clin­ton team by pro­vid­ing some­thing that will soon evi­dence as a big nothing-​burger. This helps to hide the real con­tro­ver­sies within Wik­iLeaks and other scandals.

Repub­li­can politi­cians, and lesser skilled Machi­avel­lian types are very eas­ily baited into moun­tain build­ing by strate­gic place­ment of mole­hills. His­tor­i­cally, no-​one is more skilled at the shiny mole­hill place­ment than the Clin­ton family.

That was writ­ten last week before today’s bombshell

CONFUSED COMEY CLEARS HER AGAIN!

This dropped Sunday afternoon just in time so that every single newspaper can lead with it on Monday and the entire MSM can cruse with it on Tuesday

I guess I was right both about the last minute Hillary dump and Comey still being in the tank but wrong about his worry about the FBI ‘s reputation. Or it could be a case of pulling a Chief Justice Roberts in the face of liberal anger.

But either way Rush saw it and called it.  The question is did Comey wait to long for the pivot to re-save the day??

  1. It’s amazing how fast a Federal government agency can go through a half million emails when the full force of the MSM and the left is attacking you isn’t it?
  2. And not just the MSM and the left, a lot of very rich and connected people gave millions to the Clinton foundation, you didn’t expect them to let their investments go to waste without a fight did you?
  3. This is all about depressing and Demoralizing trump voters and reassuring scared Hillary voters, while it might help with the first, I can’t think of anything that will get them more furious or more convinced the fix is in.

Update 2: Rush wasn’t the only one to see this coming

A solid argument can be made that FBI Director Comey is yet again helping the Clinton team by providing something that will soon evidence as a big nothing-burger. This helps to hide the real controversies within WikiLeaks and other scandals.

Republican politicians, and lesser skilled Machiavellian types are very easily baited into mountain building by strategic placement of molehills. Historically, no-one is more skilled at the shiny molehill placement than the Clinton family.
