Simple answer he felt a legal obligation to inform congress we both differ as to why he felt that way. But he still ant compromise the investigation if he does it opens up him and the FBI to further problems. He has to treat this as any other investigation meaning he cant release anything until its complete.
So Comey will go into hiding until...whenever. No giving in to the screams and demands for more information?

I see what your saying however from my (vague) knowledge of the law something sticks out. Just because they have the information legally doesn't mean it's admissible in court.
For instance, let's say there is classified information on the laptop owned by Weiner and Abadin. They have it but don't own it and certainly aren't classified to see it.
Once the FBI realized that they may infact need this for evidence in another case, they decided to get the warrant.
According to a March 31 Time magazine report: “In 1996, after months of work, Comey came to some damning conclusions: Hillary Clinton was personally involved in mishandling documents and had ordered others to block investigators as they pursued their case. Worse, her behavior fit into a pattern of concealment: she and her husband had tried to hide their roles in two other matters under investigation by law enforcement. Taken together, the interference by White House officials, which included destruction of documents, amounted to ‘far more than just aggressive lawyering or political naiveté,’ Comey and his fellow investigators concluded. It constituted ‘a highly improper pattern of deliberate misconduct.’”
Comey decision was Whitewater II

I don't think the Democrat party officials and surrogates are playing this whole thing very well. Seems to be a lot of finger pointing at Comey and grabbing unsubstantiated information and positioning said information as fact, like no emails to or from Clinton, etc.
It seems they are willing to blame everyone but Clinton in public, whilst behind the scenes we already know from wikileaks they are tearing their hair out over how Hillary has handled the whole email affair.
It will be very interesting indeed to see how the American people react.
