March 1, 2016: FBI Director James Comey says he is “very close personally” to the Clinton investigation.

Speaking to Congress, Comey comments about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s emails. “As you know, we don’t talk about our investigations. What I can assure you is that I am very close personally to that investigation to ensure that we have the resources we need, including people and technology, and that it’s done the way the FBI tries to do all of its work: independently, competently and promptly. That’s our goal, and I’m confident that it’s being done that way, but I can’t give you any more details beyond that.” (The Hill, 3/1/2016) 

These are very similar to comments Comey made on October 22, 2015.
