Mr. Comey said nothing he’s seen leads him to question his original conclusions.
“I haven’t seen anything that would come near to that kind of situation,” he said. “I know there’s lots of questions, lots of controversy. I’m very proud of the way this was done.”
Republicans said the FBI’s handling of the case is denting the respect the country holds for the storied G-men. “That is not the FBI that I used to work with,” said Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican and a former prosecutor.
Mr. Comey bristled at those words.
“I hope some day, when this political craziness is over, you will look back again on this, because this is the FBI you know and love,” he said. “This was done by pros in the right way.”
