Not My Fault! Hillary Blames FBI Director Comey for Her Loss
Look in the mirror, Hillary.
It is never ever a Clinton’s fault when they fail. Never. Of course Hillary has pointed the finger at FBI Director James Comey while others blame outside forces. The only person who has actually pointed the finger at the Democrats and Hillary? President Barack Obama.
Hillary told major donors that Comey’s letter to Congress a week before the election cost her the presidency:
“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.”
The FBI concluded its investigation into Hillary’s private email server ended in July, with Comey listing all the damning actions by her and her staff, but did not recommend any charges.
Yet, the FBI came across emails on devices used by top Hillary aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner during its investigation into him sexting an underage girl in North Carolina:
In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear pertinent to the investigation,” Comey wrote the chairmen. “I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.
Two days before the election, Comey sent another letter to Congress saying he did not change his mind about prosecuting Hillary. But she thinks that letter made things worse:
Mrs. Clinton said a second letter from Mr. Comey, clearing her once again, which came two days before Election Day, had been even more damaging. In that letter, Mr. Comey said an examination of a new trove of emails, which had been found on the computer of Anthony D. Weiner, the estranged husband of one of her top aides, had not caused him to change his earlier conclusion that Mrs. Clinton should face no charges over her handling of classified information.
Her campaign said they had proof since polling data “said that ‘there is no question that a week from Election Day, Secretary Clinton was poised for a historic win,’ but that, in the end, ‘late-breaking developments in the race proved one hurdle too many for us to overcome.'”
Except they missed ONE thing…those silent Trump supporters. Due to people on both sides destroying Trump supporters, there were many who did not say out loud they planned to vote for Trump. Joe Scarborough and Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post discussed this on Morning Joe in October:
JOE: I know that in Mika and my experiences over the past year, nobody admits it publicly and then whispers as you leave the room, that yes, in fact they’re voting for Trump, and it’s still happening. Do you think there is, possibly, a one or two point hidden vote for Donald Trump out there, for people that are embarrassed to tell pollsters that the guy who’s been on TV for the past week sexually harassing women or insulting them is the guy they’re going to be voting for?
CHRIS CILLIZZA: Yes. And I find it strange even that I’m saying it, because typically and Joe you know this from having run for office, typically the “we’ve got a secret 5% vote,” never works. That’s what you say when you lose.
Obama held a news conference today where he took a few swipes at Hillary and the Democrats for losing this election, particularly for not trying hard enough in alleged hard to win places:
“I believe that we have better ideas. But I also believe that good ideas don’t matter if people don’t hear them,” Obama said, reflecting on Hillary Clinton’s shocking Election Day loss.
In 2008, no one thought Obama would win Iowa. He took that doubt, put it to work, and won. He said he won “in Iowa mostly white state, ‘not because of the demographics’, but because he spent 87 days going to ‘every small town’, fair, fish fry and VFW.”
Obama also said he probably saved a few votes because he took that extra effort to visit the voters:
‘And the challenge for a national party is how do you dig in there and create those kinds of structures,’ he said.
He praised Trump’s ability “in tapping into the enthusiasm of his voters,” which led to victories in Florida, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, and North Carolina:
‘I think that to the extent that there were a lot of folks who missed the Trump phenomenon, I think that connection that he was able to make with his supporters,’ Obama said, ‘that was impervious to events that might have sunk another candidate, that’s powerful stuff.’
Others have blamed sexism on the loss, especially against us females who had the audacity to think the economy is more important than electing the first female president.
Some have said third party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein stole the election from Hillary, but The Wall Street Journal pointed out that Hillary needed a large chunk of their voters PLUS quite a bit of Trump voters.
Maybe…just maybe…for the hundredth time…it’s because Hillary is an awful candidate and we saw through her.

Hitlery Queen Of Denial
“I can remember it as if it were yesterday. James Comey came to our house in Chappaqua. He literally barged his way in carrying all sorts of electronic equipment. Then he began installing this wire and that wire; he drilled holes in the walls, leaving sawdust and plaster all over the place, and made all sorts of noises with hammers, drills, and electric screw guns. When he was done he told me and Bill, actually he was yelling at us, “From now on you WILL use this computer for all your emails. Then he left. The next time I saw him was at that news conference in early July of this year.”
“That man, that man, caused me to lose the election.”
I hope that Comey’s twitchiness did cost Hillary the election. It would mean that she paid directly for her illegal and dishonorable behavior, which would leave a warm feeling in my heart.
It is possible, I suppose, that that is precisely why he did it. He may have wanted to recommend indictment back in July, but was ordered not to by the sycophant at DoJ. He found another way to place vital info about a presidential party nominee. Who knows?
If you hadn’t used a private server, Comey wouldn’t have been investigating in the first place, you corrupt witch.
And I see that Zippy trotted out the old “we didn’t get our message out” bull patty that Democrats use every time they lose.
We’ve had 8 years of their message and it was rejected.
And this is why the investigation(s) need to continue and charges need to be brought against her.
Even if O pardons her.
First we need to toss Hillary in a pond to see if she floats. No action should be taken till the liberal science is completed.
In the pond? If she was a ‘real’ leader she could adapt and overcome adversity. Tie an extra 50# around her neck when you toss her in, and if she swims America will know it made a mistake.
You know nothing about the scientific method of determining who is a witch. Tie weight to the subject!?! Simply not done. Liberal science is far too rigid for that. What can be done is to make a wooden model of Hillary and see if it floats. In liberal science, models are readily manipulated. Reality, not so much.
Wasn’t Hillary’s election loss due to a spontaneous protest regarding a Youtube video?
She’s an incompetent asshole. That’s why she lost.
Steven Speilberg Offered to Train Hillary Clinton to ‘Be More Likeable’ When She Speaks — Clinton declined: “I get $250,000 to give a speech, and these Hollywood jackasses are going to tell me how to do it!”
Clinton’s awfulness was certainly a factor. Absent that, however, I think Trump would still have won.
I lived in England when Mrs. Thatcher won her first General Election and witnessed the “shy Tory” effect first hand. I predicted that the same would happen here and it did.
Let’s see, what are HERSELF!’s accomplishments?
Hillarycare to destroy 1/4 of the American economy? Check
Mysterious trail of ‘missing’ or dead witnesses to illegal activities? Check
Whitewater, Travelgate, rutting Bubba enabler? Check
Introduce major legislation that became law? – Nope
Destabilize Libya, Syria and other Middle East friendlies? – Check
Admits to faults? – Nope
The list can go on. Face it, almost 40 years in the public eye and all she can do is shakedown countries and collect millions.
“Face it, almost 40 years in the public eye and all she can do is shakedown countries and collect millions.”
Which is not a bad gig, if you can stay out of jail and be satisfied with what you have. With some luck, Hillary will fail on both counts.
At this point what does it matter?
And here I thought that I was the one who caused Hillary to lose the election (I voted for Trump).
Be fair to her ( I can’t believe I am saying this ).
This is to her backers. The people who gave her 200+ million. Not to mention speaking fees and donations to the Clinton Foundation.
She has to tell them something other then “I suck as a candidate. You were morons to donate.”
She runs in corrupt circles, so I wonder what will happen to her? I know that if *I* conned the Mob or some Narco org out of 200 million, my days would be numbered. In the single digits.
Many people say that Clinton shouldn’t be indicted – that her humiliating loss will be punishment enough.
Sorry. This woman is a sociopath. She’s already rationalizing and compartmentalizing her humiliation, so that she’s a victim.
For the sake of our country, and to punish this filthy excuse for a public figure, indict her and try her.
She lost because she didn’t listen to her husband, a political genius. Bill told her to go after union whites, but Hillary responded that she would drop coal country for good & West Virginia was long gone.
One trip to Milwaukee or Detroit could have won the Election for her.
Of course it is not easy when you cancel all of your appearances for an entire month, including most of October to “prepare for the debates.” (When the election books are written we’ll find out whether she went AWOL for the critical month of October because she was ill).
She’s an arrogant piece of garbage – she knew best, right?
Most arrogant is Obama – thinking he could put the whole ‘house’ in her care. The greatest irony is her bringing Obama’s and the left’s whole house down.
Couldn’t be better, except if she’s indicted and tried.
While it was certainly gratifying to see the whole Hillarious house of card fall down … I still can’t account for cancellation of the fireworks show. That just doesn’t fit that whole hubristic thing they had going.
Oh, do tell, Clinton. What difference, at this point, does it make?
Not only was she an awful candidate, she IS an awful person. She is spiteful, vindictive, corrupt, filthy-mouthed, hateful, and just plain mean.
She cares for no one but herself and only marginally cares for others if they can do something for her. She didn’t go to the fairs, fish-fry’s, and VFWs because she cannot spend more than a few seconds pretending she cares for these people.
She has been in the spotlight for almost 30 years. There hasn’t been a day in the last 30 years where we haven’t heard her name spoken or seen her photograph on the TV or website. To think that anyone anywhere didn’t know what her policies were is absurd.
The problem with her is that when she spends more than a few minutes in other people’s company, they tend to see her for what she is. Her campaign people knew this so they kept her away from this type of event.
She didn’t go to the fairs, fish-fry’s, and VFWs because she cannot spend more than a few seconds pretending she cares for these people. That is part of it, I think it was a simple issue with standing upright without a podium to hold on to.
What worries me is that Hillary has a legacy, her name is Chelsea.
While I may live to eat these words, I don’t worry very much about Chelsea carrying on the family tradition of corruption, dishonesty, arrogance, and incompetence. Chelsea seems a distant second in the family IQ sweepstakes with the the likability of Hillary and the sociopathy of Bill.
Seems like a perfect NY Congressman but no more.
But she’ll have the resources of the Clinton Charitable Slush Fund behind her. For an idea of what vast piles of money combined with malevolent intentions can do, see Soros, George.
If we can get the courts to destroy the Clinton funding machine, Chelsea will be reduced to a mere noise. That’s why it’s important to stay on the case of Clintonian corruption.
She didn’t go to the fairs, fish-fry’s, and VFWs
Unfortunate for her she didn’t; she’d have had a slight edge over Obama, because she could go to the pig-roasts, which of course he can’t.
And I would’ve gotten away with it, if it hadn’t been for that diddling Weiner!
If Trump is as awful as they say he is, and Hillary is as good as she says she is, a couple of messages from the FBI Director shouldn’t have mattered.
The fact is, she will remain #NOTANYONESPRESIDENT
Ah, good old Wisconsin has been trotted out as the exemplar of how narrowly Hillary’s defeat was. A loss by a mere 27,000 votes.
Except that Donald received about as many votes in Wisconsin as Mitt Romney had, but Hillary received 1.5-million fewer votes than President Obama had. Hillary couldn’t turn out the Democrats, but somehow this is everyone else’s fault.
