Which is another way of saying "Hurry up!"

I really thought I was through with this, but then Giuliani dragged me back in:

Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he knew the FBI planned to review more emails tied to Hillary Clinton before a public announcement about the investigation last week, confirming that the agency leaked information to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.  

Or, to put it another way:

Appearing on Fox News on Oct. 25, top Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani could barely contain his excitement as he teased a blockbuster development that would shake up the presidential race in the GOP nominee’s favor.

“Does Donald Trump plan anything except a series of inspiring rallies?” Brian Kilmeade, host of “Fox & Friends,” asked.

“Yes,” Giuliani replied with a massive grin.

“What?” co-host Ainsely Earhardt curiously asked.

“Ha ha ha,” Giuliani laughed. “You’ll see.”

The former New York City mayor promised, “We got a couple of surprises left. . . . And I think it’ll be enormously effective.”

He continued: “I think [Trump’s] got a surprise or two that you’re going to hear about in the next few days. I’m talking about some pretty big surprises. . . .  And I do think that all of these revelations about Hillary Clinton finally are beginning to have an impact.”

Three days later, on Oct. 28, Comey’s letter to congressional leaders about the FBI’s review of the new Clinton emails was leaked by Republicans.

And now this Friday morning, Giuliani returned to “Fox & Friends,” giddy over the tightening of polls in battleground states.

“To tell you the truth, I thought it was going to be three or four weeks ago,” he said.
So did the FBI read the e-mails on Weiner's computer and then, after Comey's letter, ask for court permission (a search warrant) to do what they'd already done?

I know the report that all they had was the "meta data", but not the content of the e-mails.  I don't buy it.  Else why was Giuliani so gleeful and expecting the announcement three weeks earlier than it came?

Inquiring minds want to know what the hell is going on in the FBI and why it is leaking information about investigations like a sieve.
