Hillary continues to blame everyone but herself for 2016 presidential loss

Hillary Clinton says a combination of FBI Director James Comey's letter regarding her email server and Russia's hack of John Podesta's emails were to blame for her 2016 presidential election loss.

"I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28, and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off.

"As Nate Silver --who doesn't work for me, he's an independent analyst...-- has concluded that if the election had been on October 27, I would have been your president. And it wasn't. It was on October 28, there was a lot of funny business going on about that.

"Ask yourself this. Within an hour or two of the Hollywood Access tape being made public, the Russian theft of John Podesta's emails hit WikiLeaks. What a coincidence!

"You just can't make this stuff up.

"The reason I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last ten days. I was leading in the early vote, I had a very strong -- not just our polling and data analysis... strong assesment of where we were on both votes and electoral votes," Clinton said.

Clinton tells CNN's Christiane Amanpour that sexism and misogyny played a part in her 2016 presidential election loss to President Donald Trump.

"Yes, I do think it played a role," Clinton said about sexism being a factor in why she lost in 2016. "I do think there were other things as well."

"Every day that goes by, we learn more about some of the unprecedented interference, including from a foreign power, whose leader is not a member of my fan club," she said about Russian president Vladimir Putin.

"It is really troubling to me that we are still grappling with how to deal in an economy to ensure that people who do the work that is expected of them get paid fairly," Clinton also said.
