Less than two weeks before the presidential election, the FBI announced the re-opening of the investigation surrounding Hillary Clinton, which includes focus on Anthony Weiner, the husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The Washington Post’s David Ignatius tried to lecture Comey about the timing:

A couple years ago, Ignatius called Obama “perhaps the least political president in modern U.S. history,” so nothing should be too surprising.
