Response to Bucky (Reply #16)

17. I'm talking about your outlandish ideas!

Comey is not compelled to send letters to Congress informing them the FBI may have found some emails that might have some classified material that might pertain to Hillary - 11 days before an election.

Also, I have never heard of a "political" criminal investigation, much less the FBI would be doing one.

In this sense, the "separation of powers" defines what each branch can and cannot do constitutionally. The "checks and balances" are also constitutional, and where issues come up involving the separation of powers, that is a constitutional matter.
