Hillary Clinton blames herself - and misogyny, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Russian Federation - for defeat

Speaking at an event hosted by Women for Women International, Clinton admitted that she didn't run a ideal campaign, but she said the election still would have been hers if not for Comey's letter that seemed to reopen the FBI's investigation into her private email server.

After saying Comey, WikiLeaks and sexism were among the reasons for her losing the election, she said she took "personal responsibility" for the loss and acknowledged that she did not run a "perfect campaign".

Clinton also added, "I was the candidate". But on October 28, FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress, telling lawmakers that the bureau was looking in to additional emails that could have been sent from an unsecured email serves that contained sensitive information. It's really troubling to me we're still grappling with how to deal in an economy to ensure that people who do the work that's expected of them are given a fair wage.

"It's possible to say you take responsibility while also acknowledging what is very clear, what independent analysts have shown over and over again. which was that the Russian WikiLeaks and Comey had had an impact on the election and were probably determinative".

She said it's fair to question President Donald Trump's legitimacy due to supposed Russian involvement in the election.


Just for good measure, she also blamed the media and woman-hating for her failure to take the top job. If he wants to tweet about me I'm happy to be the diversion.

She sarcastically noted the "coincidence" that an hour after the story of Trump's lewd comments on an "Access Hollywood" taping broke, WikiLeaks revealed it had more than 50,000 private emails sent by her campaign chairman John Podesta.

After spending the past six months in relative hibernation, Clinton made a rare public appearance on Tuesday (local time) and ruminated extensively for the first time on her loss. I didn't publicly support it because that wasn't my role.

She added, "If the election was on October 27, I'd be your president".

Hillary Clinton believes misogyny, Russian interference and questionable decisions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation influenced the outcome.


In March, Clinton called the Trump-backed health care bill "disastrous" and knocked the plan for doing away with a maternity care requirement in health care.

"I'm now back to being an active citizen", she said.

The former secretary of state also criticized cuts that Trump proposed for the State Department and foreign aid, noting that even his secretary of defense, James Mattis, said that strategy was unwise.

Clinton praised Defense Secretary James Mattis for making the case for maintaining U.S. foreign aid funding, despite a budget request by Trump that would cut it.

The memoir, she said, is due for release in September.
