Comey Confirms That Hillary Clinton's Inevitability Was Her Undoing

Former FBI Mind: assumption Clinton would Triumph a Element in Re Search Report: Comey Admits Mishandling Hillary Clinton Email Investigation
Sammy Stanley | 15 Апреля, 2018, 06:03

In his book "A Higher Loyalty", scheduled for public release next week but excerpts of which were published by news organizations Thursday, he defends his decision to tell Congress in October 2016, just weeks before the election, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was re-opening its probe of Mrs. Clinton's handling of classified information using a private email server as secretary of state.

"One of the president's greatest achievements will go down as firing Director James Comey", she added.

But months later, just days before the November election, he publicly disclosed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had reopened the Clinton probe to review additional emails that had been recovered. A lot of them have been damning accusations or insults about Trump's White House, but the book also reportedly delves deep into his handling of the Clinton investigation, The Guardian reported Friday.

In early 2016, the US government became aware of information from a classified source, and "the source and content of that material remains classified as I write this", according to the book.

"She said, with just the slightest hint of a smile, 'Try to look beat up, '" Comey wrote in the WaPo excerpt. However, in the book Comey acknowledges that he assumed at the time that Clinton would win the election. The Republican National Committee plans an aggressive response to an upcoming memoir by fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. That episode convinced Comey that he needed to step forward with his own public accounting of the email server investigation.

In his book, Mr. Comey said he publicly announced the re-opening of the probe because he feared not doing so could make the future president look "illegitimate". Trump called Comey a "slime ball" on Friday.

Comey said in his new tome that he would have made different choices regarding the email probe. "More important, I would have tried to find a better way to describe Secretary Clinton's conduct than 'extremely careless'".
