Hillary Points Fingers the Wrong Way for Losing to Trump

Politics / US Presidential Election 2016 Nov 13, 2016 - 03:16 PM GMT

By: Stephen_Lendman

Politics

Hillary consistently blames others for her deplorable public record as first lady, US senator and secretary of state - serious wrongdoing enough to land ordinary people in prison longterm for committing any one of her numerous high crimes.

In a Saturday conference call to donors contributing $100,000 or more to her campaign, she was at it again, blaming FBI director James Comey for reopening his investigation into her email scandal in late October after 650,000 new ones were discovered.


According to her assessment, whitewashing her wrongdoing a second time days later, after earlier in July, wasn’t enough to undo damaging her politically.

“There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful,” she said. “Our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.”

After Comey said “we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton” - less than 36 hours before polls opened for November’s election - her spokesman issued a statement saying:

“We were always confident nothing could cause the July decision to be revisited. Now Director Comey has confirmed it.”

One news report said Hillary “basked in the glow of vindication” after hearing the good news, expecting an electoral triumph on November 8.

Vindictiveness and finger-pointing the wrong way followed defeat. “We were…up in all but two of the battleground states,” she said, “and we were up considerably in some that we ended up losing.”

An internal campaign memo said “there is no question that a week from Election Day, Secretary Clinton was poised for a historic win. (L)ate-breaking developments in the race proved one hurdle too many for us to overcome.”

The NYT cited unnamed Democrats, saying her “instinct to shun any personal responsibility angered” them. Campaign officials were so confident of victory, they celebrated with champagne before Tuesday’s defeat.

According to Edison Research, exit polls found undecided voters choosing who they preferred in the final week before November 8 went for Trump by a 47 - 42% margin.

Before Comey’s announced investigation into her email scandal, then reopening it a second time for a brief eight days, Hillary said “(w)e felt so good about where we were. We…had a real wind at our back.”

In a Friday conference call with campaign volunteers, she said “(l)ook, I’m not going to sugarcoat it. These have been very, very tough days.”

In earlier articles, I explained voters had to choose between the two most widely reviled presidential aspirants in US history.

Independents like Jill Stein have no chance to overcome a system rigged against them, duopoly power unchallenged, proving democracy in America is pure fantasy, power brokers and supportive media scoundrels keeping things this way.

The good news is Trump’s triumph likely dodged a bullet - saving humanity from a possible nuclear war holocaust had Hillary defeated him.

She’s politically dead, but true to form, not going away quietly - discussed earlier post-election and today in a separate article.
