The former FBI director said that President Obama’s attorney general tried to steer his explanation of the Clinton e-mail probe.
Former FBI Director James Comey said before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, tried to direct Comey’s explanation of the Clinton e-mail probe.
Comey admitted that Lynch’s meeting with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac influenced his decision, but said that his resolve was motivated by other instances of impropriety.
“At one point the attorney general had directed me not to call it an ‘investigation’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Comey said.
Comey added that another classified issue (which he could not discuss in a public setting) also influenced his decision to conduct the investigation independent of the Obama administration.
Regarding reports that he had acted on a fake Russian intelligence document, Comey called the allegations “nonsense.”
