Comey: I Announced The Hillary Investigation Because Polls Showed Her Ahead

Comey feared making Clinton an “illegitimate president”

That episode convinced Comey that he needed to step forward with his own public accounting of the email server investigation.

Comey said in his new tome that he would have made different choices regarding the email probe.

According to Axios, Comey writes in "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership" that there are things he wishes he had done differently in announcing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not recommending charges in its probe of Clinton's use of a private email server.

What Comey did next - following a July news conference in which he branded Clinton's handling of classified material "extremely careless" - has left him vulnerable to accusations of having swayed the election.

"Although we did not uncover clear proof that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues meant to violate authorized tips governing the coping with of labeled information, there could also be proof that they'd been terribly careless of their coping with of very delicate, extraordinarily labeled information", he acknowledged on the time.

"I$3 f I had it to do over again, I would do some things differently".

Trexquant LP stated it has 35,243 shares or 0.38% of all its holdings. 271,092 were reported by Factory Mutual Ins Communications. The firm has a market cap of $263,563.13, a PE ratio of 19.64, a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 3.24 and a beta of 0.54.


Trump initially pointed to Comey's handling of the Clinton investigation as the reason for his dismissal, though he later acknowledged that he had considered the FBI's probe into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation as part of his decision to fire the top cop. "I would avoid the "Seacresting" mistake by saying at the beginning of my statement that we weren't recommending charges", he said according to Axios.

"But I believed - and still believe, even in hindsight - it was the best thing for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and for the Department of Justice" to go public about Clinton, he writes.

Sitting down with ABC news during the promotional tour for his book, Comey said that he anxious, "if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out".

"Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general's independence in connection with the Clinton investigation", Comey writes, according to ABC.

"A Elevated Loyalty: Actuality, Lies and Administration" is due to be launched on Tuesday.
