Nunes, the FBI NY Field Office and Weiner's laptop

See here from 3:24



I don't think enough has been said about this, it's massive. To spell it out

1. Nunes says "Whistleblowers" came to "us" i.e House Intelligence Committee in "Late September 2016", about additional emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop. "Good FBI Agents" were the whistleblowers, clearly from the NY Field Office.

2. Think about that for a second. Nunes, the GOP and Trump campaign knew about Weiner's laptop a month before Comey.

3. He says "they" couldn't use it because it was "classified". This is clearly bullshit.

4. Why did it take a month for the NY Field Office agents to go to Comey ?

5. Why did the NY Field Office agents feel the need to go to Nunes BEFORE going to Comey ?

6. Why did they leave a month go by before going to Comey ?

7. Oh, and the Ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, said Nunes never told him about this.

8. Is Nunes, by volunteering this to Ingraham (who has a whoa WTF moment), getting out in front of the story ? It didn't seem logical to include that in the discussion.

9. Nunes is saying the FBI Agents came to him. What if a combo of Guiliani and Kallstrom gave it to him, as they are the ones well connected to the NY FBI Field Office ?

10. The Big Picture is that the Trump Campaign got the NY Field Office agents to hold off on going to Comey, until less than two weeks before the Election.

to win back at least one House.

(While I think Democrats can win some Republican seats in the Senate, the likelihood of all 25 Democrats holding onto their seats in the Senate is slim. I'm a numbers person IRL, so I try to be realistic about these things)

The classified letter that Comey sent to Congress about reopening the Clinton investigation.

It was an engineered event to toss the election in trDump's favor.

Who did they leak it to ? It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't have gone to Comey immediately as he had already intervened, and was under obligation to go to Congress if anything else was found.
