Clin­ton blames misog­yny, FBI, Rus­sia, her­self for loss

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Hil­lary Clin­ton says she is tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for her 2016 election loss but be­lieves misog­yny, Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence and ques­tion­able de­ci­sions by the FBI also played roles. The for­mer Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee re­flected Tues­day on the pres­i­den­tial con­test dur­ing the Women for Women In­ter­na­tional’s an­nual lun­cheon in New York. Clin­ton said she was “on the way to win­ning” un­til a com­bi­na­tion of events in the fi­nal days. She cited the FBI di­rec­tor’s let­ter to Congress res­ur­rect­ing ques­tions about her email prac­tices and Wik­iLeaks’ re­peated re­lease of her cam­paign’s in­ter­nal emails that “scared off ” peo­ple.
