Clinton Tells NBC: It’s James Comey’s Fault I Lost, Not Mine

“So I think [Comey], in terms of my personal defeat, was the most important factor,” Clinton told the “Today Show.”

Hillary Clinton said that former FBI Director James Comey was to blame for her election loss during an interview on NBC’s “Today Show” on Wednesday while promoting her new book, “What Happened.”

“What’s the biggest cause of your loss? What part is Comey, what part’s Russia, what part’s you?” NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked Clinton.

“I think the determining factor was the intervention by Comey on October 28,” Clinton responded. “As I write in the book, and I could have put much more into the book, and independent observers like Nate Silver and others say, ‘Yes, but for that intervention,’ I would have won, but it stopped my momentum.”

“So I think that, in terms of my personal defeat, was the most important factor,” Clinton concluded.
