Critics of Comey's tenure as FBI director, including Clinton herself, have attributed her loss in part to his decision to reopen that investigation. The FBI ultimately declined to recommend that Clinton be criminally charged.

Comey's post came in response to the 100th anniversary of the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment, which guarantees a woman's right to vote.

"#19thAmendment is an important anniversary but the vote is not enough. We need more women in office. VP and Virginia governor are good next steps," he tweeted. He also shared the image on Instagram.
