“Strategy No. 1: Demand more details from Comey

This was Clinton’s initial strategy during her brief press conference on Friday, where she said that ‘the American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately.’

Voters may fill in the blanks when words like ‘FBI,’ ‘Clinton’ and ‘investigation’ appear in the same headline, even if there’s more smoke than fire to the case. But as more information about the case has come to light, the implications seem less severe for Clinton than they did at first.”
