    Days before the November 8th polls, the US presidential race was rocked by the announcement that FBI Director James Comey had reopened an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, in a move applauded by some but denounced as a conspiracy by others.

    The FBI came across these emails while going through a computer that was owned by Hillary’s top aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner, as they were investigating the latter for suspected child pornography in an unrelated case.

    The media is awash with reports that FBI agents, already in a near-mutiny over their disagreement with Comey for refusing to press charges against Clinton back in July, were on the verge of an all-out rebellion once they found out about the new discovery, and that they were largely responsible for pressuring the Director to change his mind and reopen the case.

    Coming this close to Election Day, however, this announcement can’t help but shake the very foundations of America’s democracy.

    Andrei Baklanov, deputy head of the Council of the Russian Diplomats Association, former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia (studio guest); Richard Magda, American businessman working in Moscow, vice-president, Prologic company; and Eric Shiraev, Professor in the Political Science department, at George Mason University joined us to discuss the topic.
