Clinton Campaign Trips Over Weiner?

Font Size:

Or: Will Dick Pix Nix Chick’s Inauguration Kicks?

I’d kind of assumed that Anthony Weiner had already done as much damage to Hillary Clinton as we was going to do, if any. He’s a laughingstock, but most people have seemed to be sympathizing with Huma. Her separation from him was just more proof that these strong independent women don’t need any men on the campaign trail, etc. (Except for Bill Clinton and his coat tails, of course, but why quibble over the details?)

But the specter of ol’ Carlos Danger is still haunting President Grandma:

Adam Goldman, Alan Rappeport, Michael S. Schmidt, and Matt Apuzzo, NYT:

Federal law enforcement officials said Friday that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Mrs. Clinton, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.

The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related to the Clinton case — one federal official said they numbered in the thousands — potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.

What does it all mean? I don’t know, and neither do you. At this point I’m skeptical that anything will come of it, but it’s fun to watch all the lefties panic.

Stay tuned!
