Ahead of his highly anticipated book release this week, former FBI Director James Comey sat down for five hours with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos to discuss the inner details of the book. The final interview aired on Sunday on a special edition of “20/20.”
If we decide there is no criminal case there and we recommend no prosecution, the Republicans will be screaming that we let, you know, the greatest crime go since the Rosenbergs were executed for selling our nuclear secrets. And if we prosecute her, the Democrats will scream that we’re just doing it out of some sort of partisan bias because I’m a former Republican appointee and so the system is rigged against Hillary Clinton. Either way, we were going to be attacked.
It’s now long known that in September 2015, about three months into the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directed Comey to refer to the Clinton email probe as a “matter” instead of “investigation,” which was a more apt description.
That directive made Comey uncomfortable, he explained after being asked whether he believe Lynch sought to protect Clinton.
“I didn’t know exactly why she was doing that,” Comey said. “It worried me. It gave me an uncomfortable feeling.”
