Her Own Damn Fault

Hillary Clinton has made history as the first woman to lose an American presidential election, but now she's blaming FBI director James Comey for her defeat.

"... our analysis is that [FBI director James B.] Comey's letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless... stopped our momentum," she says.

Clinton went on to admit that what should have been good news basically backfired. Comey issued another letter to Congress on the Sunday before Election Day, in which he concluded that the FBI's nine-day probe into newly discovered emails turned up nothing that changed his earlier conclusion that there had been no criminal conduct.

"Just as we were back up on the upward trajectory, the second letter from Comey essentially doing what we knew it would — saying there was no there there — was a real motivator for Trump's voters," Clinton explained.
