He had to say that because if he said something about what was in the emails that would mean he read them. Reading them without a warrant breaks the law. That would violate the original warrant, prevent him from getting another warrant and maybe get him in trouble. So I believe he knew what was in the emails and used protocol for his statement of not knowing. That gave him a free pass to cause a lot of trouble over nothing.

I wish that were true, but the sad fact is that the FBI has inserted itself into our political system since it's founding. J. Edgar Hoover spied on every single major figure in American politics for half a century. That's why he was able to keep his post as the Director of the Bureau of Investigation and then as the first ever FBI director for nearly fifty years.
It's not surprising that the FBI has inserted itself into this election. The bureau is overwhelmingly white and male. It is also filled with plenty of political operatives left over from the Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II administrations.
It is blatantly obvious that Comey knew what was in the emails. He used a false compliance with the law to say he didn't know what was in the emails. So when he reveals there is nothing in the emails he reveals that as an official doing his duty. Then after getting a warrant and upon examining the emails that he officially knows nothing about he then declares them harmless. Hiding behind reality he puts forth an innocent picture. I would give all of jaredsxtn's money and some of mine to hear Hillary examine him under oath. Comey perpetuated the greatest "legal" defamation of a person's character on a world wide exposure in the history of the world. There without a doubt will be objective legal scholars that will crucify his actions taking place in the two weeks before this presidential election. Comey had rationalized objective facts to immunize himself in his mind. Somebody will hold him accountable.
