Jennifer Palmieri, who was Mrs. Clinton's communications director and signed the campaign's almost 2,000-word criticism of the Times report, said on Friday that she and the other advisers did not know at the time of the July 2015 article that their candidate was under criminal investigation. And then he answered with a resounding: "No".
Comey asserts that he didn't sense Lynch interfered with the investigation, even after the highly publicized Phoenix tarmac meeting between Lynch and former President Bill Clinton.
What Comey did next - following a July news conference in which he branded Clinton's handling of classified material "extremely careless" - has left him vulnerable to accusations of having swayed the election.
Clinton has said Comey "forever changed history" with his election interventions.

Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation ultimately decided not to refer Clinton's case for prosecution, Democrats said Comey's announcement damaged her with voters right before the election, and he faced complaints that his moves were politically motivated.
Comey is frank about what a distasteful task the investigation of a major presidential candidate represented for an agency that aspired to preserve its independence in an election rent by poisonous partisanship.
"I don't remember knowingly thinking about that, but it has to have been because I had been operating in a universe where by Hillary Clinton was going to overcome Donald Trump, and thus I'm pretty convinced it had been a factor", Comey explained in a excerpt of an interview aired on Saturday. "From the Democratic side would come predictable stuff about my wanting the spotlight, being out of control, driven by ego". That episode convinced Comey that he needed to step forward with his own public accounting of the email server investigation. He moreover says that he wouldn't have modified his broader conduct, "nonetheless I can take into consideration good and principled people in my reveals making completely totally different selections about some points".
He goes on to say the material is "a development still unknown to the American public to this day".
