Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book will double down on Russia’s interference and James Comey’s involvement in her stunning election defeat

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 4:01 pm

The following quotes are from a news article I blogged about briefly yesterday, published in “theHill” on which you can read in full at

Begin quote from news article cited above:

The memoir’s focus on how Russia and Comey, the former FBI director fired earlier this year by President Trump, cost Clinton the White House would run counter to recent messaging from Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other Democrats about the party’s disappointing 2016 results.

“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer told The Washington Post earlier this week. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”

End quote

I had no idea that James Comey was involved in the Russian interference in the American presidential election.

This quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

While the book will zero in on Russia and Comey — which Clinton has said are the two biggest contributing factors to her loss — it will also examine other factors she blames for a role in her defeat, including sexism and misogyny…

At a Recode tech conference in May, Clinton said, “I take responsibility for every decision I make — but that’s not why I lost” — a sentiment she has also told allies.

[…]

“She [Hillary] believes she would have won and that Russia and Comey ultimately brought her down,” one longtime adviser said. “She feels validated by all the news circulating out there about Russia.”

  1. Hillary Clinton is worse than Trump in that she’s been pretending to be a public servant all of her adult life whereas Donald Trum used his business acumen and connections, not taxpayer’s money, aquire a fortune and subsidize his extravagent lifestyle. There’s also no whiff of murder attached to Trump…yet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsHq-5OYQTI

  2. Jesus Harold Christ. Let’s talk about the dead aliens at Area 51 . That would be more productive than listening to Clinton cry a damned River

  3. Hilary needs to own up to the fact she had no message and arrogantly assumed her “blue wall” would hold.
