former FBI Director James Comey recently told ABC that when President Trump won the 2016 presidential election, he wondered if the FBI had anything to do with it.
“[Trump] is now going to be the 45th president of the United States,” ABC’s Stephanopoulos said. “The most stunning upset in American political history. And what part of you is thinking, I helped elect Donald Trump?”
Comey responded, “A whole lot of me was thinking, ‘Oh, my God. Did we have some role in this? Did we have some impact on the election?’”
“I don’t know the answer,” he said. “And in a way, I care about the answer. And in a way, it doesn’t matter at all. I really wasn’t making decisions based on political fortunes.”
