James Comey Responds to Hillary’s Claim the FBI’s Reopened Investigation Cost Her the Election

Failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed for months after her defeat that the FBI’s reopened investigation into her emails cost her votes. Former FBI Director James Comey announced they were resurrecting the investigation just 11 days before the election.

“I was on the way to winning,” she said in May 2017, “until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. And the evidence for the intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive.”

“I respect her view,” Comey said in response in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday. “I accept the criticism. It doesn’t change how I think about it though.” . . .

“My view, and the view of my team was, we cannot conceal from the American people that the investigation we told them, and fought to tell them, is done, is not done,” Comey reasoned. “And the result could change. We just couldn’t do that.” (Read more from “James Comey Responds to Hillary’s Claim the FBI’s Reopened Investigation Cost Her the Election” HERE)
