Somewhere in a basement, the strategists for the Donald Trump campaign are already fiercely plotting for how they are going to steal this negative news cycle away from Hillary Clinton. And that might be a challenge, because this is going to be a big one:
(CNN)The FBI expects to publicly release as soon as Wednesday the report the bureau sent to the Justice Department in July recommending no charges in the Hillary Clinton email server investigation, according to multiple law enforcement officials.
The release is in response to numerous FOIA requests including from CNN.
Also to be released is Hillary Clinton’s 302, the FBI agent notes from Clinton’s voluntary interview at FBI headquarters. The report is about 30 pages, and the 302 is about a dozen pages according to the officials.
It’s difficult to predict exactly what will be in the report, but given the public blistering Hillary received from FBI director Comey on two separate occasions, it’s safe to say it won’t be good for Team Hillary.
It will be interesting to see if Trump does the smart thing and lets the media chew on this for longer than about thirty minutes before he goes on television and beheads a live puppy or something just to get the cameras turned back in his direction again. If I were a betting man, I wouldn’t put money on it.
