FBI Director James Comey is strongly defending his decision to alert Congress that agents were revisiting the Hillary Clinton email investigation less than two weeks before the November election.

Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that he concluded it would have been "catastrophic" to have concealed that development from Congress.
