Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Thursday the Department of Justice will still need to deal with Hilary Clinton’s email case.

“The question of whether it should’ve been prosecuted, and it still may be, it’s not outside the statute of limitations so far as I know, and that’s something the Department of Justice is going to have to deal with,” the Connecticut Democrat said on MSNBC.

But Mr. Blumenthal said that he and other Democrats are still frustrated by the way FBI Director James. B. Comey handled the FBI case against Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, last year. Mr. Comey testified Wednesday before Mr. Blumenthal and other members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Mr. Comey said he had two choices last year, to either keep the investigation secret and be accused of hiding something or inform Congress that he was reopening the case based on new emails found on Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s emails.

Mr. Blumenthal said Mr. Comey’s choice to go through one of those “doors” left many wondering if he intentionally meant to change the course of the election.

“And the reason he chose one of those two doors left many in the room, including me, very frustrated,” said Mr. Blumenthal, adding the decision “played a very important role” in the election.
