The idea that the FBI’s actions just before the 2016 election affected its outcome makes FBI Director James Comey “mildly nauseous,” he testified on Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

During the hearing, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) asked Comey to explain his decision to inform Congress ― and therefore, the public ― in a letter that the FBI might be reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server just days before Americans went to the polls.

Speaking “would be really bad” because there was an election in 11 days, Comey said. But concealing would be “catastrophic,” he added.

At that point, Comey couldn’t have known that the FBI would be able to review the emails before the election and determine that they did not change its prior decision.

“Look, this was terrible. It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election, but honestly, it wouldn’t change the decision,” Comey said

During that same hearing Wednesday, Comey said the FBI is investigating possible leaks to Rudy Giuliani about the Clinton email investigation.
