FINGER POINTING

Clinton: FBI Cost Me Election

In a 30-minute conference call with donors on Saturday, Hillary Clinton pointed the finger at FBI director James Comey for her loss. According to the New York Times Clinton said, “There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful … our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.” Clinton also claimed that the second letter, which cleared her a second time, actually caused even more damage because it fed into Trump’s argument of a rigged system. Clinton said that after Comey’s letters, her numbers dropped in battleground states where she had been leading.
