In his first remarks since the Justice Department’s inspector general’s report was released, former FBI Director Jim Comey said Tuesday he doesn’t regret the way he handled the Hillary Clinton email case – despite the report’s harsh criticism.
Comey initially responded in aNew York Times op-ed last Thursday.
“I was strongly criticized in a report that came out last week – a report that I urged be done because I wasn’t certain that I was right. When you’re making hard decisions, anyone who’s certain is a lunatic. I thought we had it right but I thought other people might see it differently. And the inspector general, the watchdog for the Department of Justice, sees it differently,” Comey said while during an interview in Berlin with the German newspaper Die Zeit.
