    Witch hunt season. We are operating under such a double standard that political and media leadership should be ashamed. I saw a meme yesterday. It listed: Trump lies about (whatever) Hillary e mails, Trump (whatever) Hillary e mails. It listed a dozen of his more heinous acts and with her - e mails. He's been mean, dishonest, and irratic but she e mailed. It's simply a modern day witch hunt and America should be nothing less than ashamed.

    If our last 15 presidents were incredible I would understand the fear of gender change. Last 15 had 2 or 3 good, 7 or 8 avg., and 4 or 5 bad. Misogynistic hatred by a populace that has been overrated. American voters can right this wrong. Hopefully the will do the right thing. This is a trying time for this young country.

    Yes T.J. There are far more serious issues here than stupid e-mails, which have shown nothing yet that it has harmed the US. I guess we should check all the e-mails of the Pentagon; may be we can find the "billions lost somewhere" and in who's pockets it disappeared. Priorities in this country are always on the wrong thing; we are champions in that respect. Let's investigate why "billionaires" don't pay taxes (or way too less) for instance. Shaking my old head.

    There is just undeniable never going to change prejudices. On GMA it was reported that white men get charged less and get more direct routes on UBER. The results of early voting will be a huge determining factor about prejudice in the USA. If Hillary does well then there is progress.

    I saw where a man said this was because of gender (FBI) and he encouraged women to make up for it with their votes.

    Another story said the FBI has more details about Trump and money from Russia, but it's too close to the election to release it.... Again, the double standard. Wasn't the e mail issue reopening on Friday ? ? ?

    Latest on how many in the bureau are Trumpkins ........

    Perhaps the president needs to stop this misuse of federal power / authority and level the playing field. This is unprecedented.

    Yes Tony it is just infiltration of an"enemy" in this case the GOP; right now they act as in the Hitler time when you had the NSB in the Netherlands who did help the Germans to select and deport all the Jews to the gas chambers. Sorry to say it gives me a feeling to barf.

    I have had on occasion listened to upper career law enforcement and military. Bottom line is to them is "it's a man's world" and all the rest that goes with that type of thinking. Their bottom line is jailing and killing.

    The Addictinginfo article is revealing as it suggests that the FBI has many Hillary haters in it's organization. It will be difficult for Clinton to purge the FBI of her enemies, and Comey may or may not be one of them. He may be caught between a rock and a hard spot, much the same as John Boehner was as Speaker of the House when having to appease the Tea Party faction in his party. Clinton cannot appear to be too "hands on" in meddling in FBI affairs, but if she can replace Comey with a Democrat that she can trust, then that would be the first step. That person can then slowly transform the organization.

    While we're talking about the FBI, we should also realize that other organizations (the military for one) may also be antagonistic towards Clinton. Several military big wigs tried to undermine Obama and they also are a part of history now.

    Yes Schmidt, indeed the military as Trump said, approved him above Hillary. It is time we reign-in the "power" and wasteful spending of the Pentagon. Let's check their e-mails about where all the money went and in who's pockets. Don't we have wars enough? Stop the meddling in the world, stop provoking other world powers as well; lets clean up the mess at "home" first.

    Dutch, Talking to an orthopedic surgeon once gave me a lot of practical insight. He said, "I'm a surgeon, I'm going to cut you". Career military want to fight. They aren't concerned about peace. The military industrial want to make money from killing. There is unbelievable pressure to show the benefit of a well armed army. Hillary will have to deal with that money. Everybody wants to do what they do best. There is one single coalition to unite all the forces and pressures, the President.
