Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said the Justice Department will still have to address Hillary Clinton's email case, The Washington Times reported.
"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," he told MSNBC, according to the Times.
Blumenthal's remarks came after FBI Director James Comey testified before Blumenthal and other members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Comey defended his decision to notify Congress about new emails in the case just before the election, The New York Times reported.
"It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on th election," Comey told the committee. "But honestly, it would change the decision."
But Blumenthal said the decision left him "very frustrated" and he maintained it "played a very important role" in the election.
