Could that be what really has the Democrats in a lather?
Now that James Comey is no longer FBI director, it’s a whole new ball game with an entirely new set of rules — U.S. rules, not the former director’s rules — and Hillary Clinton could be in trouble.

At least that’s the opinion of Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, whose group has been instrumental in uncovering many of the former secretary of state’s secrets.
Fitton appeared Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“I think [Clinton’s case] needs to be reevaluated not only under a new FBI director but under the new leadership of the Justice Department,” he told host Tucker Carlson. “Comey misdirected the investigation by suggested they needed to prove intent when in fact, common sense tells you that they mishandled it and knew what they were doing was wrong which is enough for a prosecution. It’s gross negligence under the law. The [Obama] Justice Department never wanted to have a serious investigation.”
And with a new team it’s a new game.
“I still think she faces legal jeopardy. If the system is working, she still faces legal jeopardy,” he continued. “The Justice Department under President Obama protected her. The FBI Director repeatedly misstated the law suggesting they needed intent. They had plenty of intent.”
At his July 5 press briefing last year, Comey laid out in excruciating detail why former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s extreme carelessness when handling official communications containing classified information should have made her criminally culpable.
But when he was finished, instead of hitting the ball right out of the park as he should have, he bunted — and he missed.
He recommended that no criminal charges be brought against her, giving Democrats a huge sigh of relief but leaving legal professionals scratching their heads.
The day after the briefing, former FBI assistant director James Kallstrom told then-Fox News host Megyn Kelly that something was fishy about Comey’s findings.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Comey used to work for him when Giuliani was a U.S. attorney and he said he was shocked.
Current FBI agents believed that a deal had been struck.
