Clinton blames misogyny, FBI, Russia, herself for 2016 loss

Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday she was on the path to victory in the 2016 presidential election until late interference by Russian hackers and FBI Director James Comey scared off some potential supporters. "I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot".

"Fine. Better than the interfering in foreign affairs", Clinton said. The release of campaign chairman John Podesta's emails and an October 28 letter to congress by Comey about the FBI reopening the investigation into Clinton's private server are what she blames in the reversal of her lead in the election. "I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had".

Clinton promised to address sexism in her new book to be published this fall.

However, Clinton said she was "not convinced [the strike] really made much of a difference" and said she was concerned about possible backroom deals the Trump administration may have made with Russian Federation, notifying them beforehand of the strikes against their ally.

The popular vote has been a source of contention with Trump, who argues that he essentially won the popular vote over Hillary. "It's not even rookie mistakes, this is political malpractice that she was engaged in".

She also revealed that while she takes "absolute personal responsibility" for losing in November, she believes "if the election had been on October 27, I would be your president".

Nate Silver calculated that the coverage decisions made by the media cost Clinton 3 points in the polls, "Clinton experienced a sharp, 3-point drop in her polls after the Comey letter came out".

"What a coincidence. You just can't make this stuff up", she said.

Clinton went on to say that Trump's campaign goals appeared to align well with the goals of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to McClatchy, Canter's conclusion "is shared broadly by other Democrats who have examined the data, including senior members of Clinton's campaign and officials at the Democratic data and analytics firm Catalist".

She was also faulted for not spending enough campaign time in traditionally Democratic strongholds MI and Wisconsin, states which fell to Trump on election day.

Clinton will also speak on Tuesday at a Planned Parenthood 100-year anniversary gala, where she is expected to slam Trump's handling of women health issues during his first months in office, including attempts to defund the women's health organization. Clinton said during her keynote address at the annual conference hosted by the Professional BusinessWomen of California.

Clinton did give credit to her hardworking staff and volunteers during the election campaign before saying that there it "wasn't a ideal campaign" because "there is no such thing".
