While speaking to a crowd at a New Hampshire rally, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump commended the FBI and its director James Comey for the decision to re-investigate Hillary Clinton's emails. Comey's decision was made after discovering that Huma Abedin, a leading Clinton aide and estranged wife of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, had a laptop computer that was linked to Clinton's email server. The FBI made this discovery while investigating Weiner's emails and texts because of allegations that he sent graphic, lewd and inappropriate pictures of himself to a 15 year-old girl. Abedin and Weiner shared the laptop computer until the couple separated earlier this year.

Trump describes FBI probe as a "criminal" investigation

In keeping with his reputation as an exaggerator, Trump described the newest FBI probe into Clinton's emails as a "criminal" investigation. Trump's exaggerated depiction of the probe was made without any evidence whatsoever that there is anything "criminal" about the newly discovered emails on Abedin's laptop computer. So far as anyone knows at this point in time, the emails did not contain any classified, secretive or sensitive information whatsoever because there is no evidence that any of the emails did contain such information. Until it is known for sure that anything classified, secretive or sensitive was sent in any of the emails in question, it is only right to assume that such information was not conveyed in any way, shape or form whatsoever by either Abedin or Clinton.

Trump's O'Reilly Factor interview

On July 5, 2016, Trump was interviewed by Bill O'Reilly on the show "The O'Reilly Factor." In that interview, Trump reacted to Comey's midsummer decision not to recommend prosecuting Clinton. Comey stated that there simply was not enough evidence with which to recommend prosecution and that the emails did not rise to the level of a "prosecutable" offense. In that interview, Trump implied that Comey's decision was suspect and that the Clinton campaign was somehow culpable in Comey's decision. Once again, Trump had no evidence for any and all of his allegations and was basing everything he said simply on his own, personal, unfounded beliefs.

Trump's demand that election be "called off"

Trump apparently has not felt very secure about the likely outcome of the election because he called for the cancellation of the election just a few days ago. In the 240 year history of the United States, no election has ever been called off, not even in 1964 when it was known ahead of time that GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater was going to be defeated by Lyndon Johnson in a landslide.

If Trump felt more confident about his chances of attaining a victory in the election on November 8, 2016, he would not be calling for the cancellation of the election. Despite the fact that the poll numbers for Trump and Clinton basically are running even, Trump does not seem to be very confident about his chances of attaining a victory in the election. Ordinarily in presidential races or politics in general, nobody would call for the cancellation of an election about which they felt very secure and knew that they were going to be the winner. But then again, there is nothing ordinary about Donald Trump.
