The Los Angeles Times reports that the FBI accelerated its timeline for reviewing the newly revealed emails the FBI Director James Comey told Congress appear pertinent to the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server while serving as Secretary of State:

Investigators had planned to conduct the review over several weeks but, after a torrent of criticism over the weekend, began scrambling to examine the trove of emails, according to law enforcement officials. The FBI hoped to complete a preliminary assessment in the coming days, but agency officials have not decided how, or whether, they will disclose the results of it publicly, and officials also could not say whether the entire review would be completed by election day.

What is the FBI thinking? Comey throws out his bombshell less than two weeks before the election. Then we learn the FBI is talking about 650,000 emails and that they hadn’t even bothered to get a warrant to allow them to review the emails. Nor did they bother to tell Director Comey about the emails for weeks. And now suddenly they get their warrant Sunday and now the say they might “complete a preliminary assessment in the coming days,” whatever that means.

All this makes me think that maybe Hillary has a point. If the FBI can complete a preliminary assessment of the emails before Election Day they owe it to the electorate to do so and share the results.
