James Comey's wife reveals she was 'devastated' by Trump's election win

Patrice Comey, the wife of former FBI Director James Comey reveals she was 'devastated' by Donald Trump’s victory and still wanted Hillary Clinton to be president, even when her husband reopened the investigation into her emails. 

"I wanted a woman President really badly, and supported Hillary Clinton. A lot of my friends worked for her, and I was devastated when she lost," Comey said.

In an interview with ABC, Patrice Comey opened up about her support for Clinton during the 2016 campaign, saying she was upset with Clinton’s reaction to the FBI reopening her email probe just 11 days before the general. 

"I feel like she attacked the institution of my husband and I was disappointed," Comey said.

James Comey, who was fired as FBI director has a book out documenting his strenuous tenure under Trump and had also told the network that his wife and daughters attended the Women’s March in Washington D.C. the day after the President’s inauguration.

"I knew that they were potentially on a collision course. President Trump was not an ethical person. I knew my husband was," Comey said.
