The Hill reports:
The former president, who is an elector for New York, said Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton fought through “everything” during the campaign, including the FBI’s “bogus” investigation into her use of a personal email server while secretary of State.
“I never cast a vote I was prouder of,” Bill Clinton said to reporters after casting his electoral vote for his wife.
“You know, I watched her work for two years. I watched her battle through that bogus email deal. She fought through that. She fought through everything, and she prevailed against it all and then at the end … the FBI deal — she couldn’t prevail against that.”
Bill Clinton has criticized FBI Director James Comey’s decision to send a letter to Congress just days before the election about possible new evidence in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. After a review of newly discovered emails that surfaced while investigating another case, the FBI ultimately concluded that it would stand by its decision not to recommend charges against the former secretary of State.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has largely blamed Comey’s letter for losing the election.
