New York Times: Hillary Clinton Blames F.B.I. Director for Election Loss
Hillary Clinton on Saturday cast blame for her surprise election loss on the announcement by the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, days before the election that he had revived the inquiry into her use of a private email server.
In her most extensive remarks since she conceded the race to Donald J. Trump early Wednesday, Mrs. Clinton told donors on a 30-minute conference call that Mr. Comey’s decision to send a letter to Congress about the inquiry 11 days before Election Day had thrust the controversy back into the news and had prevented her from ending the campaign with an optimistic closing argument.
“There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful,” Mrs. Clinton said, according to a donor who relayed the remarks. But, she added, “our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.”

WNU Editor: I said the same thing when both FBI letters were released. The first letter opening the investigation 11 days before the election helped to suppress her vote, and the second letter saying there was nothing there to investigate only helped to motivate Trump voters to vote. There are also other reasons on why she lost .... but it is clear that for Hillary Clinton .... she lost because of the FBI Director.
