I saw some different polls this morning.

They're also predicting 273 electoral votes for Hillary and 180 for Trump if things go as projected.

Did you see that both ex-presidents Bush, 41 and 43, may both vote Clinton? super grin

This is from Reuters, which I hope Inkling considers a "neutral" source.

FBI fear of leaks drove decision on emails linked to Clinton: sources
By Mark Hosenball, Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - FBI Director James Comey was driven in part by a fear of leaks from within his agency when he decided to tell Congress the FBI was investigating newly discovered emails related to Hillary Clinton, law enforcement sources said on Thursday.

The examination of the email traffic is now being carried out under the tightest secrecy by a team at Federal Bureau of Investigations headquarters in Washington, the sources said, requesting anonymity because of the inquiry's sensitivity.

Several sources said it was unclear whether the FBI would make any further public disclosures about its latest review before Tuesday's presidential and congressional elections. Two sources said such disclosures were unlikely.

Another source, recently in contact with top investigators, said: "It depends on how it goes and what they find." The source said that, as of Thursday, "nobody really knows" whether the FBI will have anything further to say before the election.

Dropping like a bombshell on the U.S. presidential campaign, Comey's disclosure last Friday in a letter to senior lawmakers just days before the elections raised questions about his motives and drew criticism from some over his timing.

Comey disclosed that the FBI was looking at emails as part of a probe into Clinton's use of a private email system while secretary of state, without describing the emails' content or how long the inquiry might take. The FBI normally does not comment on ongoing inquiries.

The latest emails examination was moving forward "expeditiously," said one source close to the review.

The new emails turned up as FBI investigators were examining electronic devices used by former Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner in connection with an alleged "sexting" scandal. Weiner's estranged wife, Huma Abedin, is a Clinton confidante.

Two law enforcement sources familiar with the FBI's New York Field Office, which initially discovered the emails, said a faction of investigators based in the office is known to be hostile to Hillary Clinton. A spokeswoman for the FBI's New York office said she had no knowledge about this.

Democratic Party sources said such a faction was likely responsible for a recent surge in media leaks on alleged details of an ongoing FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

The FBI has made preliminary inquiries into Clinton Foundation activities and alleged contacts between Trump and associates with parties in Russia, according to law enforcement sources. But these inquiries were shifted into low gear weeks ago because the FBI wanted to avoid any impact on the election.

The FBI previously had spent about a year investigating Clinton's use of the unauthorized server at her home in Chappaqua, New York, instead of the State Department system after classified government secrets were found in some of her emails.

Comey had said in July that while there was "evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."

The real Clinton email scandal is that a bullshit story has dominated the campaign
Matthew Yglesias, Vox.com 9 hours ago

Some time ago, Hillary Clinton and her advisers decided that the best course of action was to apologize for having used a personal email address to conduct government business while serving as secretary of state. Clinton herself was, clearly, not really all that remorseful about this, and it showed in her early efforts to address it. Instead, email-related talk has dogged Clinton throughout the election and it has influenced public perceptions of her in an overwhelmingly negative way. .

Why, this email/server/security problem is so minor that Huma Abedin has had to disappear from the campaign, her husband is headed to prison, the top FBI officials have been trying to block an investigation of the Clinton Family Foundation, the FBI agents have gone to the media demanding a prosecutor, a grand jury, and an indictment of our innocent Hillary.

We watch as email after email shows collusion among the media, the Justice Department, the State Department, the Hillary campaign, George Soros and more.

The anti-Christian conversations are instructive, as are the bigoted comments.

And there is so much more, all exposed in full or in part because of Hillary's attempt to use her position as a cash machine.

My battery is dead.... C U later...

Hey, let's send classified information to Chelsea! Very Happy Won't that be fun when it gets out to the public! super grin

http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/04/hillary-deleted-email-showing-she-forwarded-classified-information-to-her-daughter/

“Wow — you can’t make this up — sorry to have missed all of that! Let me know if you learn anything else,” she wrote to Sullivan. The State Department released that portion of the email conversation in February.

But perhaps the most significant part of the email is that Clinton forwarded classified information to her daughter, who is and was a private citizen with no government role and no apparent security clearances.

It is unclear when or why Clinton deleted the email. She gave the State Department around 30,000 emails she claimed were related to her State Department work. She deleted a similar number claiming they were personal and dealt with yoga routines, food recipes and Chelsea’s wedding.

Trump Mulls General David Petraeus for Secretary of State Despite Email and Intel Scandal
By Nina Burleigh

Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state is shaping up to be a critical and defining moment for the president-elect. Unlike his picks to lead the Department of Health and Human Services or the Department of Justice, for which Trump nominated Tom Price and Jeff Sessions, respectively, his choice for secretary of state is not just about how the new government will affect Americans, but how it will deal with the world at large.

On Monday, Trump met with yet another candidate, retired General David Petraeus, who pled guilty to mishandling classified information in 2015, three years after resigning his post as CIA director while under FBI investigation.

Trump won the 2016 election at least partly because his supporters were outraged over allegations that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified email correspondence during her term as secretary of state. The FBI investigated Clinton and didn’t recommend charging her with any crimes, but Trump egged on the crowds chanted “Lock Her Up!” and often compared her treatment to that of the scandal-scarred general, saying Petraeus “had his life destroyed for doing far, far less” than Clinton.

The Petraeus classified information and email scandal had a lurid element that Clinton’s chicanery did not. The general resigned as director of the CIA after the media reported he had been having an affair with his hand-picked biographer, Paula Broadwell. The FBI discovered the affair when it investigated Broadwell for sending anonymous and threatening emails to a Lebanese-American socialite named Jill Kelley, who she apparently believed was a rival for Petraeus’s affections. In the course of that investigation, the FBI discovered that Broadwell and Petraeus had shared a gmail account. The shared account served as a drop box, in which the lovers wrote email drafts to each other, erasing them after they read them. The account was not encrypted.

But it wasn’t just the affair that piqued the FBI’s interest. The bureau also discovered that Petraeus had shared eight hand-written notebooks in which he kept highly classified information. The black books were found in his home in 2013 and reportedly included "the identities of covert officers, war strategy, intelligence capabilities and mechanisms, diplomatic discussions, quotes and deliberative discussions from high-level National Security Council meetings, as well as defendant David Howell Petraeus's discussions with the President of the United States of America."

According to the plea deal, Petraeus also lied to the FBI about how he handled the classified information. He eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified materials. Under the plea deal, he was given two years of probation and fined $40,000, significantly less than the $100,000 maximum allowed by the law. A judge later ordered him to pay the maximum.

The Defense Department investigated Petraeus too, but earlier this year concluded he should be allowed to keep his four stars and a $220,000 annual pension. He has kept a relatively low profile since.

Senator Rand Paul is a key vote in the secretary of state confirmation process, and Petraeus could have a tough road if the Twitter feed of his chief strategist, Doug Stafford, is anything to go by. He tweeted: "Hillary does it -- 'Lock her up.' Gen Petraeus does it -- CABINET POST! No."

Quote:
Gen. Michael T. Flynn, Mr. Trump’s pick for national security adviser, has his own checkered past about rules. He installed a secret internet connection in his Pentagon office despite rules to the contrary. Sound familiar?

Petraeus, Flynn, Heaven knows who else among the Republicans.

Why all the hue and cry about Hillary Clinton's server, but not about any of these Republicans'?

I don't see Angela or UnMask complaining about the breach of security when it's a Trump toadie who jeopardizes national security, at the Pentagon to boot??
