The FBI has been investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails for months, and now the investigation is publicly picking up pace.
So on Tuesday, when FBI Director James Comey announced a surprise press conference, it really perked up the ears.
Headed soon to @FBI where Director James Comey plans to make a public statement at 11am EST. No topic provided in advance.

One potential topic: Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Just last week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton held a private airport meeting in Phoenix. While it was described as merely a social call, rumors quickly swirled that it involved the email investigation.
To tamp down on the rumors, Lynch swiftly announced that she would defer to the guidance of the FBI and career DOJ prosecutors.
Then on Saturday, Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI, as the Daily Caller first reported.
President Obama is scheduled to join Hillary Clinton at a rally in North Carolina later today, and a Twitter user pointed out that it’s unlikely Obama would do so if an indictment were on the way:
A decision on indictment is predicted before the election, and conservative commentator Ben Shapiro has a guess on what you’ll hear at 11:
Prediction: Comey says the investigation is continuing, that nothing corrupt has happened, that Hillary answered all questions.
