Clinton blames FBI director for her election defeat

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton blames her election defeat by Donald Trump on the FBI director James Comey’s decision to go public on the investigation into her email server. In a conference call with her top campaign donors Saturday, Clinton said that up until that point, she was projected by nearly every national poll as the heavy favorite. Comey’s second statement that she would not be prosecuted, issued two days before the election, caused a surge in Trump support and he took advantage of both statements to turn the tide against her in the upper Midwest, she maintained. DEBKAfile: In blaming the FBI for her defeat, Hillary has chosen to ignore the fact that the national polls in her support have since been discredited as flawed and the momentum they gave her was often artificial.
