Former FBI Director James Comey said that his assumption that Hillary Clinton would be elected president influenced his decision to reopen the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email practices during an exclusive interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

Stephanopoulos asked Comey whether at some level his decision to reveal that the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clinton was influenced by his assumption that Clinton would be president.

“It must have been. I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I’m sure that it was a factor,” Comey said.

“I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she’s going to be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out,” he added.
