10 things we learned from FBI Director James Comey's Senate hearing

Comey told the panel he felt he had to speak out past year about the email probe because he had repeatedly told Congress the investigation was over.

Comey said he knew it would be unorthodox to alert Congress to that discovery 11 days before Americans picked a new president.

Republicans slammed the supposedly impromptu chat between the ex-president and the country's top prosecutor, alleging the fix was in regarding the feds' probe into Hillary. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa., asked Comey if the FBI was investigating whether members of the Obama administration leaked information about the Trump team to the media.

Asked whether he gave Clinton "a free pass", Comey said: "No, that was not my intention certainly". Tell me what you would do.

"Fine. Better than interfering in foreign affairs", Clinton said.

The former US Deputy Attorney General said the thought that his actions in October might have influenced the election result makes him feel "mildly nauseous", but insists he made the right decisions.

Green pulled out after a month of calls for President Donald Trump's administration to choose someone else. In a statement , Green said it was with "great regret" that he withdrew his name from consideration.

Comey said he met with his investigative team on October 27, where they showed him metadata from Weiner's computer that included "thousands of Secretary Clinton's e-mails on that device, including what they thought might be the missing emails from her first three months of secretary of State".

Politicians in Washington, she said, are doing everything they can to roll back "rights and progress that we've fought so hard for over the last century".

"The FBI and the Justice Department have provided me material inconsistent answers in closed setting about its reported relationship with Mr. Steele", Grassley said. "I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had", she said.

Here are some key quotes from his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Obviously I would want to do that in close coordination with the department.

"It takes a lot of work to lose to Donald Trump", Axelord told hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota.

Comey and other intelligence officials have publicly said they're counting on Russian Federation trying to influence USA elections from here on, using similar tactics to what they used in 2016.

Adjusting the color balance can be a quick fix but for the OC ones, you can probably wait for the official software update. And in CR's labs, they found with the damage-resistant Gorilla Glass 5, the S8s are more scratch-resistant than the S7s.

During his testimony, Comey also disputed a claim from Trump on Tuesday night that the Federal Bureau of Investigation director "was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds".

Comey called Wikileaks "intelligence porn" that simply pushes out information with no regard to how it's used.

But he added that he thinks he behaved appropriately and had no regrets about his decisions.

What has Comey said about the Russian Federation investigation?

"The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security "leakers" that have permeated our government for a long time", Trump tweeted in two messages.

"Activism is more important than ever, and it's working, from the women's marches across the country and around the globe to helping to bring down the Republicans' bad health care bill", Clinton said earlier this year in Texas.
