She keeps insisting that she accepts responsibility for her loss, but her words say otherwise.
In her new book “What Happened,” Hillary Clinton makes sure that the reader knows her spectacular electoral defeat was actually the fault of former FBI Director James Comey and Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election.
Throughout the course of her book, Clinton mentions Comey’s name at least 114 times, and mentions Russia and Putin at around 220 points in the book.
Clinton’s chapter on Russia’s interference alone is the longest in the entire book, running 52 pages. In fact, no other chapter runs longer than 40 pages, and references to Putin and Russian interference pepper the rest of the book, no matter the chapter focus.
Clinton features Comey prominently in the chapter on her emails, blaming the FBI director for the investigation instead of her own blatant disregard for the law.
“It was a dumb mistake. But an even dumber ‘scandal,'” she wrote. The former secretary of state complained that Comey revealed the nature of her investigation, while neglecting to publicize a counterintelligence investigation involving the Trump campaign.
In her last chapter, Clinton asks in the title, “Why?” and summarizes the contents of the book, attempting to explain the election loss. She dedicates a total of 14 pages, out of 34, to reiterating her complaints about Comey and Putin, but adds the racism of Trump voters as another reason that she lost.
Clinton clearly continues to place most of the blame from her 2016 election loss on external forces.
