James Comey doesn’t think President Hillary Clinton would have fired him.
Axios’ Mike Allen spoke with the former FBI Director and asked him directly if the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate should’ve been charged with a crime. Comey said, “No.”
Allen asked Comey if he wishes Clinton won. Comey thought for a second and said, “That’s not one I’m gonna answer, I don’t think.”
As for how things would be going for him if she had won, Comey said, “I think I would still be the FBI director… Secretary Clinton is someone deeply enmeshed in the rule of law, respect for institutions, a lawyer. And so given that background, I’m reasonably confident that even if she was unhappy with decisions the FBI made, she would not fire the FBI director as a result.”
