What if Hillary and the Establishment can't steal the election?

There are a multitude of theories going around as to why the FBI reopened the Hillary email case just eleven days before the election.  I have my own.

I would have thought all of the new information revealed by WikiLeaks would have been enough to see Hillary's case reopened, but that just didn't seem to do it.  It took a set of emails supposedly obtained during the Anthony Weiner investigation to move that mountain.  What are contained in these new emails that aren't in the Podesta emails released by WikiLeaks?  Is there some new bombshell?  Or could it be that because the public doesn't know what they contain, these emails are useful for purely political purposes?  But to what end?

What if it's because they think Donald Trump is about to win the election, and not just win, but win big?  We know (confirmed by WikiLeaks and Project Veritas) that the DNC, media, and pollsters are doing their best to rig the election for Hillary.  But their tireless efforts don't appear to be working.  Just look at the enthusiasm and size of the Trump rallies versus Hillary's.  Combine what is easily seen with the large numbers of people we're told are silently supporting Trump and others who are registering to vote for the first time (to vote for Trump), and it is possible that there could be a big surprise come election day. 

So what (for the establishment) could possibly be worse than a Trump presidency?  I think it would be a Trump presidency with a clear mandate.  Democrats are already crying foul about the timing of this investigation.  Without any bombshell details, though, it will unlikely change many minds at this point.  But that certainly wouldn't be the narrative if Trump were to win and win big.  The existence of this last-minute "partisan" investigation would be used to delegitimize Trump's presidency by claiming that the election was stolen or that he lacks a true mandate of the people.

Perhaps the reason for this surprise "investigation" (one that could end as the last one did following the election) is simply that Hillary and the establishment have conceded that they will be unable to steal this election and have moved on to the next best thing: attempting to steal Trump's mandate.
