Hillary Clinton Blames Election Loss on FBI Director James Comey

Hillary Clinton is placing the blame on her loss in the presidential election on FBI director James Comey.

The Democratic nominee had a conference call with donors on Saturday (November 12) and said that resurfaced suspicion of her emails barred any positive movement in her campaign.

“There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful,” Hillary said on the call, a donor told The New York Times. “Our analysis is that Comey‘s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.”

Comey sent a letter to Congress days before the election announcing that he was looking into the email server once again. Two days before the election, Hillary was once again cleared by the FBI, but she says this letter was even more damaging.
