The dramatic developments in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton portend great trouble for her candidacy. The threats are numerous, on several different fronts, and each has the potential to be lethal.

Huma Abedin probably lied under oath when she told the FBI she had turned over all emails and devices in her possession. The Wall Street Journal reported 650,000 new emails have been found on the computers seized at the Weiner-Abedin apartment.

She had been given immunity by the Justice Department, but her lies under oath likely vitiate the deal. If Huma is vulnerable to a perjury or obstruction of justice charge, it could lead her to turn on her mentor. In any case, Hillary has to fire her.

Included in the 650,000 emails might be some or all of the ones Hillary had deleted before she turned over the remainder to the State Department. If any of those deleted emails contained classified or top secret material, she is in very, very deep trouble and would likely face criminal charges.

The Wall Street Journal reports the FBI is also investigating the Clinton Foundation and has been doing so since February. The Justice Department opposed the investigation and has tried to rein it in but the FBI — and local U.S. Attorneys in four cities — are determined to proceed.

Was that what former President Bill Clinton spoke to Attorney General Loretta Lynch about on her plane in Phoenix on the tarmac? The Foundation is so riddled with pay-for-play scandals that investigating it could be very dangerous for the Clintons.

So what about between now and Election Day? None of this new evidence can be processed in the remaining week, so don't expect clear results. But the fact of the investigations and the public announcement FBI Director James Comey has already made are likely to sink Hillary's candidacy.

It puts her email and Foundation scandals squarely on top of the public agenda in the critical final days before the election.

GOP nominee Donald Trump had been gaining every day the week before Comey spoke. Obamacare premium increases, the onset of Trump's effective negative advertising, and the ongoing (and still coming) WikiLeaks revelations have all played a part.

Most shocking, was the memo from Bill's chief aide Doug Band. Confronted with charges from Chelsea Clinton he was ripping off her father (how stupid could Chelsea get?), he prepared a 13-page list of all the income he had channeled to the former president.

It came to over $60 million and provides a playbook and scorecard for the pay-for-play scandals at the foundation.

In one moment, the advantage has shifted decisively back to Trump.

Morris is the co-author of the book, "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary." (Humanix) with Eileen McGann. Available on B+N and Amazon.
