Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey swiped at Hillary Clinton this week, saying the twice-failed presidential candidate “still doesn’t understand” what her investigation was all about.
Comey was giving an interview during his international book tour when he was asked if he owed Clinton an “apology” over the botched probe into her mishandling of classified information.
“No,” stated Comey. “It shows me that -even at this late stage- she doesn’t understand what her investigation was about. It was not about her use of a personal email system.”
“It was about communicating about classified topics on that system when those topics have to be done on a classified system,” he added.

FLASHBACK: Comey Threatens ‘HUGE TROUBLE’ for FBI Agents Who Use GMAIL
Former FBI Director James Comey found himself in hot-water Thursday after the IG report detailed his repeated use of a private gmail account to conduct bureau business; raising serious questions over his decision regarding Hillary’s private email server.
According to CNBC, Comey was singing a different tune in the summer of 2016, when he threatened FBI agents with “huge trouble” should they use private email accounts to transfer FBI-related emails, even with fellow colleagues.
“If I did what Hillary Clinton did I’d be in huge trouble,” asked an FBI employee.
“If you used a personal email, Gmail or if you [had] the capabilities to set up your own email domain, if you used an unclassified personal email system to do our business in the course of doing our business even though you were communicating with people with clearances and doing work you discussed classified matters in that, in those communications, TS/SCI, special access programs, you would be in huge trouble in the FBI,” Comey said.
