"I would make the same decision", Comey declared during a lengthy hearing Wednesday in which Democratic senators grilled him on the seeming inconsistency between the Clinton disclosure 11 days before the election and his silence about the bureau's investigation into possible contacts between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
He also denied that he had treated disclosures about investigations into Clinton's emails differently than potential connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Clinton translated the criticism as "the media says I can't talk about" interference. In that, if I understood you correctly, you said Ms. Abedin forwarded hundreds or thousands of classified emails to her husband on a non-government, non-classified computer.
Comey said he has been interviewed by the Justice Department's inspector general as part of an internal investigation into how he, his top deputy and the FBI handled the Clinton case.
Among them: "I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off".
"It's like everything was a mess, between Russia, Wikileaks, Comey. we don't know what happened. you saw Russia involved, but we will never know had they not been part of it what the real outcome would have been and that's the saddest part for our country".
"I voted for Clinton on November 8 and thought she'd be a good president", he explained.
In other words, Clinton still has not accepted responsibility for her loss.
Gallup consulting company reported back in July 2016 that "as the Democratic National Convention gets underway in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton's image is at its lowest point in the 24 years of her national career, with 38% of Americans viewing her favorably and 57% unfavorably". It seems she is still plagued by the same problem. One is that she's an unpopular figure. For example, numerous security officers who served in her protection detail in both Arkansas and the White House claim she is a nasty person with a disgusting temper. "Listen to her, another day for the election and she would have won".
Clinton, like Biden, both of whom have been fierce critics of President Trump's policies, urged the public to resist the controversial bill.
As a marketing strategy, this is a smart play. His column, titled, "Hillary Clinton shouldn't be writing a book - she should be drafting a long apology to America", lays out the reasons why Clinton lost the election, despite her failure to admit even one.
