Clinton: ‘I was on the way to winning’ until Comey, Russia intervened

Leading Democrats across the country have been calling for a full accounting of Hillary Clinton’s shocking loss to Donald Trump since November. They didn’t get it Tuesday, when the former secretary of state spoke with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

In Manhattan for a Women For Women International charity luncheon, Clinton once again pointed her finger at Russian interference and FBI Director James Comey’s influence as the proximate reasons for her defeat, in her most extensive remarks yet on the topic.

For the first time, Clinton publicly took on some of the blame: “I take absolute personal responsibility,” she said. “I was the candidate. I was the person on the ballot. And I am very aware of, you know, the challenges, the problems, the, you know, shortfalls that we had.”

But she noted, as she has to her friends and donors repeatedly since November, “I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. And the evidence for the intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive.”
