WIll Under Political Pressure FBI Director James Comey AGAIN Reopen Hillary Clinton Emails Investigation?

ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2016 Nov 07, 2016 - 08:33 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The FBI tends to flip flop its stance every 10 days on the Hillary Clinton classified documents stored on a private email server saga, depending who is putting the FBI under political pressure at anyone time. So the next date to watch is November the 17th when James Comey could once more be expected to make a statement that oops we did find something after all in the 650,000 emails on Weiner's laptop so the investigation is once more reopening.


The FBI's last minute intervention to boost Hillary Clinton's election chances reeks of establishment political intervention. Clearly the FBI has come under intense political pressure to reverse it's decision of barely 10 days ago that reawakened the American people to the risks of electing a crooked Hillary Presidency. After all early Comey stated that there was no way his investigators could read 650,000 emails before election day. Clearly the establishment elite have come down like a ton of bricks on James Comey, hence forcing the reversal timed for maximum effect just 48 hours from when Americans vote!

And so as can be expected the polls have done an abrupt about u-turn, where Trump had been in ascendancy towards parity with Hillary Clinton by voting day, instead now Hillary Clinton is once more pulling away from Trump, yesterday standing +1.8% ahead of Trump.

Source: Real Clear Politics

The surge in Hillary's FBI political intervention induced polls lead is reflected across the opinion polls based forecasters such as Nate Silvers site which now forecasts a 67% probability for Hillary winning the election against a 33% chance for Trump

http://fivethirtyeight.com

Though Nate's forecast is at the lower end as the likes of the New York Times are giving Hillary a 85% probability of winning -

New York Times (4th November 2016) - Hillary 85%, Trump 15%

Princeton Election Consortium - Clinton 317, Trump 209 (270 winning post)

http://www.electionprojection.com (3rd Nov 2016) - Hillary 48.5%, Trump 46.5%

Moody's Analytics model (1st Nov 2016) - Hillary 332, Trump 206 (270 winning post).

http://pollyvote.com/ (4th Nov 2016) - Hillary 323, Trump 215

https://www.predictit.org (4th Nov 2016) - Clinton 71c, Trump 34c ($1 winner).

As for the betting markets, well they have literally crashed for Trump to above 6 again from a peak of 3.45 just a few days ago. What this means is if one placed a £100 bet on Trump today then if he won that would result in a profit of £500 (+stake). Whilst a £100 bet on Hillary would yield a profit of just £20 if she won, which illustrates that the betting markets are strongly discounting a Hillary Clinton win, which if does not happen would represent a huge shock result.

However, what the pollsters are missing is what I termed as the 'BrExit Factor' which despite the polls, forecasters, and betting markets, means that the election is NOT over and Donald Trump can still win as I explain in my most recent video why :
