In today’s news, Comey announces the FBI have reviewed all 650,000 emails found on Anthony Wiener’s computer and determined there’s nothing new. Some have questioned whether this could be done in 8 days. Of course it could be — those were 650,000 emails to Wiener, not Hillary.
Trump’s team is spreading the meme that there are only 692,000 seconds in the eight days during which the FBI had been looking at these emails, so how could they have scanned 650,000 emails? Frankly, this is a no-brainer. As this article explains, these are Anthony Wiener’s emails, and the first step was to find which ones mentioned Hillary Clinton or Huma Abedin. You can do this on a Mac with a smart mailbox: total time, less than a minute. From there, it’s pretty simple to compare the Message-ID: headers of these new emails with ones the FBI already has.
It’s not rocket science, but Trump’s people want you to think it is. And they can get away with it, because most people have no idea how these things work.
