A Few Thoughts on the FBI Emails News – From what Comey said in his earlier comments recommending against prosecution, there was little reason to think that additional emails with classified information would have changed the outcome. That just wasn’t the basis of the decision. And determining whether there is any additional classified information on these newly uncovered emails seems to be the main focus of the review. What could change this calculus is if there were new information about the intent behind setting up the private server. Something like that could change the equation. But that seems pretty hypothetical. And again, the primary focus in Comey’s letter was ascertaining whether there was more classified information. Fourth and finally, Comey did not say he was “re-opening the investigation”. Rep. Chaffetz (R-UT) said that. It is to some degree a matter of semantics. The investigation was concluded and closed. Now there’s some new evidence they’re going to review. By some definition that is ‘re-opening’. But obviously the wording is far more explosive, as Chaffetz of course realized. Chaffetz defined the initial coverage because he had the first bite at describing what was happening.
