FBI Director James Comey is sick and tired of talking about Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
So much so that he wrote a defensive two-page memo to FBI employees Wednesday, saying the bureau acted with integrity, Vice News reports.
In the memo, Comey said he expected the lawmakers to question him more about the Clinton investigation while he testifies before a Congressional oversight committee later this month about unrelated bureau work.
“Despite all the chest-beating by people no longer in government, there really wasn’t a prosecutable case” against Clinton or her aides, Comey wrote.
“You may be sick of this, but let me leave you with a few words about how I have been describing the email investigation in private to our former employees as I meet them around the country,” he wrote. “I explain to them that there are two aspects to this: (1) our judgment about the facts and prosecutive merit; and (2) how we decided to talk about that judgment. I tell them that the difficult decision was actually the second part, not the first. At the end of the day, the case itself was not a cliff-hanger.”
