On Comey's "Supplemental" Letter

As you've probably heard, yesterday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey sent a "supplemental" letter to Congress following up on his garbage letter about emails found in connection with an investigation into Anthony Weiner.

If you can't view the images, the full text of the letter reads:
Dear Messrs. Chairmen:

I write to supplement my October 28, 2016 letter that notified you the FBI would be taking additional investigative steps with respect to former Secretary of State Clinton's use of a personal email server. Since my letter, the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation. During that process, we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.

I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short period of time.

Sincerely yours,
James B. Comey
I could spend the next eleventy hours of my life writing a response to his mess, and detailing all the ways in which it is breathtakingly unfair, unprofessional, and potentially disastrous for down-ballot races even if it doesn't affect the presidential race, but instead I'll just note:

And I will grit my teeth and go on with my life. Because there's nothing else I can do.
