US Elections: Blame game begins, Hillary Clinton posts it on FBI
New Delhi : Hillary Clinton has blamed FBI for her loss against Republican candidate Donald Trump in the recently concluded US Presidential Elections. She claimed that decision to revive probe into her email accounts played a major role in breaking her momentum towards historic victory.
"There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful. Our analysis is that Comey's letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum," Clinton told fundraisers and donors during a conference call yesterday.
Clinton claimed that everything was running in her favour till the time FBi Director James Comey wrote a letter to the Congresional leadership asking them to reopen the case against her.
It all became suspicious and sounded politically motivated when the FBI cancelled their probe two days before people went in to cast their vote.
"The second letter, even that gave her the clean chit, hit her more as this energised Trump's supporters. Although she got more popular votes, Trump was declared the winner as he grabbed more than 270 electoral college votes, required to win the presidential elections," said the 69-year-old former Secretary of State.
"We dropped, and we had to keep really pushing to regain our advantage, which going into last weekend we had," she said.
Well, someone has to take the blame, and quite clearly Hillary won’t let it fall on her shoulders that easy.
