Former President Bill Clinton said Saturday that he disagreed with his wife on the effect former FBI Director James Comey's decision to reopen the agency's probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server within days of the November election.

"We have a slight disagreement about this," Bill Clinton said at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his 1992 presidential victory, The Hill reports.

Clinton sat alongside his wife, the former secretary of state, at the event.

The former president said that the email issue was overblown from the outset.

"If the voters hadn't really been told that the email ... was the most important issue since the end of World War II, I doubt if the FBI director could have flung the election at the end," Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton has repeatedly said that Comey's reopening of the email probe on Oct. 28 — days before the Nov. 8 election — was a factor in her loss to Republican Donald Trump.

In May 2016, Comey had decided against bringing charges against Hillary Clinton for her private email use.
