WTF: White House to Remain Neutral in Flap Over FBI Director James Comey 's Letter to Congressional Republicans?

In a comment on an earlier post, I stated that President Obama and Attorney General Lynch are confrontational in their demeanor and outlook:

" Lynch and Obama are not pugnacious individuals who would tell anyone to simply go to hell or shove it....LBJ would do so without batting an eyelid."

That’s what I said when I wrote about Hillary going against white male privilege. 

However, I believe that Obama and Lynch may be setting Comey up.

I still think that Comey will resign within a few weeks of the election.

And,  despite Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid's letter to Comey, which suggests that Comey's actions are in violation of the Hatch Act,  it's a safe bet that he will not be prosecuted for said violations......

(Koshersalaami will post Reid's letter to Comey shortly, I hope....)

Watch this space.....

ABC/ Washington Post Poll has Trump +1 and the LA Times USC Tracking Poll has Trump +4 while ten polls in battle ground states have Clinton up by only 1%.  It's getting ugly.

The Republican strategy is to keep the numbers within the margins that permit litigation and  judicial intervention in the "battle ground" states.

It's already ugly....

The question is:

How much more ugly can it get?

I expect that Trump will contest the results of the election at every level.  The Dems have already filed suit for voter intimidation in four states: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-intimidation-idUSKBN...
