On October 28th, the world learned that the FBI would be reviewing 650,000 emails on “devices” linked to Hillary Clinton. They said that the job would take “many weeks” and that the investigation would not conclude before the election.
Imagine my surprise when I learned they had completed their investigation in a mere ten days and declared Clinton had not broken the law in any way, shape, or form.
How many people did it take to do that?
How many people did it take to scour potentially sensitive emails to get through 65,000 or so per day? Did they round up all the office juniors to help out? The secretaries and administrative assistants?
To get through that many emails, 2708 emails would have to have been read every hour, 24 hours a day, ever since October 28th. Each one would have needed a thorough reading to ensure they were “clean.” Some would have required a second reading by someone else if the first reader that wasn’t sure. At least, that would be the case if it was done properly.
All this has apparently been accomplished in a few days rather than the weeks that the FBI said the investigation was going to take.
They must have found some way faster readers, because the last batch of emails took from March 2015 until July 2016 to investigate.
But they didn’t actually read each one.
The MSM, of course, is condescendingly explaining to the naysayers that “the world has these things called computers now, and those newfangled things can perform much of the heavy lifting in such an investigation.”
Got it. So, the emails weren’t actually all read. We understand now.
I’m sure that no one involved in any of those emails would have had the good sense to avoid using those keywords for which the computers were searching.
When opponent Donald Trump heard the news, he said:
“Right now she’s being protected by a rigged system. It’s a totally rigged system. I’ve been saying it for a long time,” he told supporters in Sterling Heights, Michigan. “Hillary Clinton is guilty, she knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it and now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on 8 November.” (source)
