Felt nauseous to think I could have influenced U.S. election: Federal Bureau of Investigation chief

Share

Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey was responding to a line of questioning from Sen. "This was bad. It makes me mildly nauseous to think we might have had some impact on the election".

In one exchange on Wednesday with Kennedy, Comey revealed longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin "had a regular practice of forwarding emails" to her now-estranged husband Anthony Weiner to print out.

"What they could see from the metadata [on Weiner's laptop] was that there were thousands of Secretary Clinton's emails on that device, including what they thought might be the missing emails from her first three months as secretary of state".

But the appearance comes just one day after both President Donald Trump dismissed "phony" ties between his campaign and Moscow, and Clinton partially blamed Comey's handling of the investigation for her stunning loss.

Yet the statistics appear to confirm that Ronaldo's latest goal for Real Madrid was, in fact, his 399th for the Spanish giants. The 32-year-old is now just one goal shy of 400 goals for Real Madrid alone.

FBI Director James Comey went before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday where is was grilled by partisan Democrats about his supposed influence in Hillary Clinton's defeat.

Republicans, such as Chuck Grassley of Iowa, were upset about leaks of classified information about the Trump and Clinton investigations and asked Comey directly whether he leaked or authorized others at the FBI to leak information to the news media - charges he denied. "If I did something wrong, I want to hear that", he said.

Comey and other intelligence officials have publicly said they're counting on Russian Federation trying to influence United States elections from here on, using similar tactics to what they used in 2016. "I've gotten all kinds of rocks thrown at me, and this has been really hard, but I think I've done the right thing at each turn".

"Fine. Better than interfering in foreign affairs", Clinton said.

Nigeria official says 62 Chibok girls released
Boko Haram has established a caliphate in northeastern Nigeria and has led an eight-year insurgency against the government. The group representing the families of the girls said they were awaiting direct confirmation from the government.

Comey answered that it was a matter of timing - that the Clinton probe was only confirmed after it was underway for three months, while the Russian Federation investigation was much younger at the time.

He said WikiLeaks can not claim protections as a journalism organization, because it has become "simply about releasing classified information to damage the United States of America". Comey agreed when Graham asked him if, from a funding perspective, terrorism would get worse if this happens.

Graham also questioned Comey about Carter Page, a former adviser to President Donald Trump and oil industry consultant with ties to Russian Federation through his energy investment firm Global Energy Capital LLC.

Comey testified a day after the unsuccessful Democratic presidential nominee said that she believed Comey's unusual letter to Congress on October 28 had essentially tilted the close race to her rival, Donald Trump.
