FBI Director James Comey said on Sunday there is no evidence in the new emails, the ones reportedly associated with Anthony Weiner, to warrant criminal charges against Hillary Clinton.
Why it stinks: There has been much hoopla and speculation as to why Comey publicly announced the FBI was looking at more emails in the first place, especially this close to the election. The FBI did not technically re-open the Clinton case to look at the emails in the first place, but instead, it was looking at the emails to see if it needed to re-open the investigation. As it turns out, they didn't. But Donald Trump's campaign praised the media spin and mis-reporting from the first Comey letter, and Clinton's supporters condemned it as an oddly political move that could affect possibly the most contentious election of the century.
