Chris Berg: 11 days until the election, FBI Director didn't drop a bomb today, he went nuclear by sending out a letter to congress letting him know he's discovered emails that may, key word here, may, be pertinent to the original Hillary Clinton email investigation. Secretary Clinton just finished up a press conference a few minutes ago, calling on the FBI to release full and complete details about the premise of this investigation, we'll have more on that for you in just a few moments. Good evening, welcome to Point of View, I’m Chris Berg. Thank you for joining us on what's going to be a fun and packed Friday night. I want all of you at home since it is Friday, just got done with work, just try something with me tonight to see if you can kind of get used to this. After the news that broke today about this investigation, there is a very good possibility that many of you, whether you like this or not, very soon, could be saying these words, President Donald Trump. President Donald Trump.
I’m going to show you why this news may be pertinent. Here’s the thing, which is shocking. This guy should never even be around another electronic device for his entire life. According to the reports, the FBI's investigation, Carlos Danger, otherwise known as Anthony Weiner, for sending, this is disgusting, illicit text messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. Anthony Weiner, married a Clinton top aide, and while the FBI was investigating, or is investigating, Carlos Danger, Director Comey said in the letter, he found emails that appear to be pertinent to Hillary Clinton’s investigation. He’s not certain how significant this info may end up being, or how long this investigation is going to take. And, with just 11 days to go until the election, it's incredible. I went home for lunch and turned on the TV, CNN was on, and the pundits looked like they lost a long lost puppy. Everybody freaking out. A sound bite from moments ago.
Hillary Clinton: It's imperative that the bureau explains this issue in question, whatever it is, without any delay. So I look forward to moving forward to focus on the important challenges facing the American people, winning on November 8, and working with all Americans to build a better future for our country.
CB: Check this out, our DC bureau got a statement from the Clinton camp saying this.
“And it is extraordinary that we would see something like this 11 days out from a presidential election, and the American public should have more information than the letter that was sent to the 8-committee chairman.”
CB: I hope some of you are laughing. What’s extraordinary is the Clinton campaign, demanding more transparency, more honesty. To me, that is about as rich as things can get here. Here's why this is very, very important. I want to remind you, you may remember Michael Steele, awhile back, he had a tweet he put out. This was on debate night, and he was talking about the GOP on debate night, I want to show you this and show you why -- it is not a good idea to make decisions too quickly. Here it is. Remember this, when he had the old atomic bomb thing kind of blowing up, saying, hey, this is GOP at the moment. This, of course, when Donald Trump was doing his thing, and I think it was actually right before the debate, and he brought up the alleged people that Bill Clinton had sexual assaulted and or raped. Steele tweets out that.
But we might want to reverse that saying the democrat party is experiencing the atomic bomb. And here is where. This was tweeted out, talking about the impact these emails could have, come November 8. He says, last time Hillary Clinton was under FBI investigation, her poll numbers plummeted, and she ended up losing 22 states to Bernie Sanders. Absolutely stunning what has taken place today, and you got to only imagine what it's like being inside the DNC right now, and what must be going on, and saying why in the world did we rig this thing for Hillary Clinton, we could have Bernie Sanders right now, and who knows who could be happening. We wanted to share with you this, this was the clip of the second debate. And as I said earlier, get used to it, President Donald Trump. He may actually follow through now and do this...
Hillary Clinton: Awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.
Donald Trump: Because you would be in jail.
CB: Absolutely priceless. We’re going to leave it right there. More later on in the show. Things are happening right now at the protest. Stay with us, when we come back, there's a tight legislative race in Minnesota for District 4B, Paul Marquart has been there quite some time. We’re going to visit with Mr. Marquart after this. We would love to know your thoughts on the new FBI investigation. Does it matter come November 8, or not? Let us know your point of view. We’ll be right back.
