CLINTON BLAMES THE FBI, RUSSIA, AND WIKILEAKS FOR HER 2016 LOSS
At the Women for Women event held in New York on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton gave an explanation on why she thinks she did not emerge victorious in last year’s Presidential election.
However, the former United States Senator and Secretary of State refused to take full responsibility for her loss at last year’s polls. She blamed the interference from Russia as one of the reasons for her loss and the FBI director, James Comey’s decision to release a letter pertaining to the investigation into her email practices just few weeks to the election.
She Claimed --“If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your president,” said the former Democratic nominee. “I take absolute personal responsibility, I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had.”
Clinton further reiterated her belief that she was on track to becoming the first female president of the United States of America but for some factors that changed the whole phase of the race for the American presidency.
“It wasn’t a perfect campaign, there is no such thing,” she said. “But I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on Oct. 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off,” Clinton said. “There was a lot of funny business going on.”
She claimed that potential contact between Russian agents and the Donald Trump campaign team swung the race in favor of the current American president. The alleged Russian contact is under investigation by the FBI.
“The evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive,” she said. “And so we overcame a lot in the campaign. We overcame an enormous barrage of negativity, of false equivalency, and so much else”. “As Nate Silver has concluded: if the election had been on October 27, I would be your president.”
