FBI Director James Comey testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that he does not regret his mid-election release of information about an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, although he admitted it made him “mildly nauseous” to think he influenced the election.
“They said we found a lot of new stuff,” he said referring to the FBI team who led the investigation into Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s server. “We did not find anything that changes our view of her intent.”
“Look, this was terrible,” Comey said with a pained expression. “It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election.”
“But honestly, it wouldn’t change the decision. Everybody who disagrees with me has to come back to October 28 with me and stare at this and tell me what you would do,” he declared. “Speak or conceal?”
