Hillary Clinton is still insisting that the FBI and Russia sunk her presidential campaign.
On Tuesday, the former secretary of state pointed to the letter FBI Director James Comey sent to Congress and the Wikileaks email dumps for sufficiently damaging her campaign to lose to Republican Donald Trump.
“But I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian Wikileaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York.
“And the evidence for that intervening event is I think compelling, persuasive. And so we overcame a lot, we overcame an enormous barrage of negativity, of false equivalency, and so much else.”
What planet is Hillary Clinton living on? An entire book was written detailing her failed leadership during the campaign. Hillary Clinton lost the election because she is Hillary Clinton, and there were no external circumstances that could’ve changed the outcome, as many were quick to point out:
What @HillaryClinton didn’t say: She missed the mood of the country. Email server and paid speeches were big deal. All but ignored rural USA

Hillary Clinton blames misogyny for her election loss.
Did misogyny force you to never campaign in Wisconsin or Michigan? ??

.@HillaryClinton blames “unprecedented” interference from Russia on her loss…such interference that has STILL never been proven

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” Clinton said.
Whatever helps you sleep at night, madame secretary.
