Last Friday’s October surprise by FBI Director James Comey hasn’t helped Donald Trump or damaged Hillary Clinton… at least so far. Early polls show voters knew about the latest email kerfuffle, but that they’d already made up their minds. Many said they wished this campaign were over. The political world is fully engrossed. Was Comey trying to influence the election? Did he violate the law? Did he have any choice? Democrats are outraged. Former attorneys general--even Republican Senators--are asking questions. But the most important won’t be answered until next Tuesday: will it affect the turnout?
An FBI bombshell in the final stretch
