From a Brit news site: Why Comey reopened the investigation

Combination of things according to this:
James Comey's decision to revive the investigation of Hillary Clinton's email server and her handling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents in the FBI, including some of his top deputies, according to a source close to the embattled FBI director.
But Comey's decision to reopen the case was more than an effort to heal the wound he inflicted on the FBI. 

He was also worried that after the presidential election, Republicans in Congress would mount a probe of how he had granted Hillary political favoritism.
So agents pissed at him have been causing enough pressure, and enough people resigning(which I've not heard anything about previously; 'threats to resign', yes, but not actual paperwork), combined with "This is making me look like crap!", added to fear of a real investigation into all this.

Hey, Comey, know what would've prevented this?  Doing your damned job honestly in the first place.

I don't think so, Firehand.

Comey was a political shill, bought and paid for by Clintons. Guy like that would run the FBI into the dirt just as long as he got his cut.

My guess is that there is stuff in those emails that are gonna get Hillary shot and pissed on for treason - and possibly her fart catchers as well. Comey is trying to distance himself like a rat fleeing a sinking ship.

You may be right; it would fit well with all the other crap
