Manchin: Hillary Clinton Made 'Horrific,' 'Horrible' Comments About Coal Miners

"It makes me mildly nauseous to think we might have had impact on the election", he said. "But, honestly, it wouldn't change the decision", Comey said in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"If I were her, I would move on", said Axelrod.

Describing Comey as the best thing that had ever happened to Hillary Clinton, President Donald Trump said that the former had given a free pass for many bad deeds.

The former candidate in U.S. presidents from Democratic party Hillary Clinton plans to form a new political group, which will Fund organizations opposed to the President of the United States Donald Trump.

On Tuesday Clinton said she partially blames her election defeat on Comey's decision to tell Congress the investigation would be revisited less than two weeks before election day.

The FBI began a counterintelligence investigation last July into whether Russian Federation had coordinated with Trump campaign associates to influence the American election, but he did not disclose that until a hearing in March, after Trump had been elected and taken office. "I don't know yet, but if I find out that people were leaking information about our investigations, whether to reporters or to private parties, there will be severe consequences", he said.

California's Feinstein cited the amount while questioning FBI Director James Comey at a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing Wednesday.

Even Trump on Tuesday sent a pair of tweets criticizing Comey's decision not to charge Clinton in the investigation, and said that the investigation into members of his campaign and Russians is "an excuse used by Democrats as justification for losing the election".

Trump had previously expressed confidence in Comey and said he had no plan to fire him.

FBI Director James Comey reiterated his agency remains confident Russian Federation tried to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and was behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, as well as the release of hundreds of emails from the party staffers.

Comey said he notified lawmakers about the Clinton-related findings because he "testified under oath repeatedly" that the investigation was over. Clinton paid lip service to making herself accountable for her flawed and failed campaign, just as she paid lip service during the campaign to listening to rural, working class voters and not underestimating Donald Trump. He said the bureau "didn't say a word" about the Russia-Trump probe "until months into it", and that he expects "we're not gonna say another peep about it until we're done".

"Is there any evidence that the Trump campaign assisted or directed those efforts?" Sen. The committee's chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., recused himself after the House Ethics Committee opened an investigation into whether he himself had improperly revealed classified information.
