Comey also spoke at length about what he characterized as his “no-win situation” in his deliberations over whether to announce publicly, less than two weeks before the presidential election, that the FBI was looking into more emails connected to its investigation of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.

Comey wrote in “A Higher Loyalty” that he assumed Clinton would win — as virtually every major poll suggested — and that he didn’t want to tarnish Clinton’s presidency as illegitimate if it were to be learned later that the FBI had withheld the information.

Comey told ABC News that he would make the same decision again.

“If I ever start considering whose political fortunes will be affected by a decision, we’re done,” he said, according to ABC News. “We’re no longer that group in America that is apart from the partisans and that can be trusted. We’re just another player in the tribal battle.”

James Comey joins Rachel Maddow live in-studio Thursday at 9 p.m., ET, on MSNBC.

CORRECTION (April 16, 2018, 6:10 a.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated James Comey’s title. He is a former director of the FBI, not the current director.
