James Comey allowed edits to his now famous remarks about Hillary Clinton before the election. This is huge. He basically allowed his words to be watered down to favor Hillary.
Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin blew the lid off of this by releasing the edits on Twitter:

FOX News explains:
Comey edits revealed: Remarks on Clinton probe were watered down, documents show
Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.
In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”
Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.
Now we need a new investigation – of James Comey.
