There was a lot of anticipation after James Comey reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. More were found on Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner’s laptops, with a total of an incredible 650,000 e-mails. Yet it only took eight days for Comey to declare that no new charges would be filed.
General Flynn, a retired four-star general, had a pretty good question about that.
It took 1 year to review 60K and 8 days to review 650K? Smart machines or not, something does not jive. Thoughts?

Flynn previously served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, as well as the chair for the Military Intelligence Board. And he makes an excellent point. How did it take a year to go through a much smaller number of e-mails? Or was this entire thing a joke?
