32. That may be true, but the intel professionals who signed this memo are pointing to...

...political delay. Could be the FBI have gone too far, as to dotting i's and crossing t's, in fear of the shitstorm that will hit them if they recommend indictment or even if they report serious malfeasance or incompetence. They have been investigating for a year, and we are now in the middle of a hotly contested presidential nomination, with this extremely serious matter hanging over one of the candidates. It's a strange situation, to say the least.

Hillary Clinton, instead of debating Bernie Sanders in California, is likely being interviewed by the FBI on a matter that, on the face of it, means she wouldn't even quality for a low level security clearance, let alone president and commander-in-chief.

I think she miscalculated how dimly California voters view someone who blows off the west coast in this way, by refusing to debate here, after promising to do so, just as she horribly miscalculated the dangers of using a private, insecure email server for State Department business. The incompetence of the email server miscalculation is stunning. Her reniging on her pledge to debate in California may not be incompetence but it sure looks like fear.
