Former FBI Director James Comey said that he has carried “around a sense of slight sickness” that his decision to reopen the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices resulted in Donald Trump becoming elected president during an interview with BBC “Hardtalk” on Monday.

BBC’s Stephen Sackur asked Comey whether he was haunted by the fact that, in essence, Comey dictated the results of the 2016 presidential election by reopening the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email practices days before Election Day 2016.

“I’m not haunted by it, but I carry it around a sense of slight sickness in my stomach,’ Comey said.

Comey explained that the FBI could not consider the political impact of his decision “because if we do that, we’re just another partisan player in Washington.”
