6. There wasn't a "Trump-Russia" investigation at the time.

You also misunderstand what he said about his thoughts about the October surprise. He said it was because he knew the FBI would take a big hit because of these add'l thousands of emails that had to be reviewed, so he decided to take the hit personally. No matter what they did, they were screwed; half the country would be angry. He also said that in the back of his mind, he thought it wouldn't affect HRC much because she was so much ahead, anyway.

He screwed up big time. I don't think that cost HRC the election. I think Russia did it, and HRC did win. The Comey thing changed her momentum, but she was still leading in almost all the polls. She didn't take that big a hit because of it.

(The other investigation going on by the FBI was still a Russia investigation at that time...not a Trump team-Russia investigation. There had been some things come to light...but nothing concrete or something, Comey said. When Comey was fired, it had become a Trump team-Russia investigation by that point.)
