Along with the FBI doing its part for the Clinton campaign by dumping on the Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend its notes from their interview of Hillary Clinton concerning her e-mail scandal, MSNBC swept some of the most disturbing elements under the rug in its first two segments on it and concluded that they’ve helped them see “a little bit better why Director Comey” didn’t recommend charges. 

NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker provided both of the initial segments on what she and her producers found both at 1:53 p.m. and 2:01 p.m. Eastern with the first one setting the scene after the story broke earlier when Welker only read from the FBI’s summary page explaining why they were releasing them.
