Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton stated, “If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your president.”
During an interview on Tuesday with CNN at the “Women for Women International” conference in New York, Hillary Clinton was seen blaming her loss in the presidential election due to “intervening events” in the final 10 days of the campaign.
Clinton emerged from her political hibernation and declared herself as “part of the resistance” to Trump’s presidency and went on to spread the blame for the reason why she is not sitting in the Oval Office right now.
Although, she acknowledged that her campaign did make some mistakes; “Of course, I take absolute personal responsibility…… Oh my gosh, yes, you’ll read my confession and my request for absolution,” she said with a reference to a book she is writing. She then went on to add, “But the reason why I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days.”
She talked about how she was very confident in winning the elections until two events that supposedly reversed her course. “I was the candidate,” she said.
“I was the person who was on the ballot,” she stated and then went on to blame WikiLeaks and the FBI Director James Comey that caused her the defeat. “There was a lot of funny business going on,” she said.
“It wasn’t a perfect campaign, there is no such thing, but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. The evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign,” Clinton said.
