Clinton blames misogyny, FBI, Russia, herself for 2016 loss

"It wasn't a ideal campaign - there's no such thing - but I was on the way to winning until a few things happened". But on October 28, FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress, telling lawmakers that the bureau was looking in to additional emails that could have been sent from an unsecured email serves that contained sensitive information.

"I didn't publicly support it because there was, you know, that wasn't my role but I did support it", she continued. "But 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".

On foreign policy, Clinton said broader negotiations involving China and other countries in the region were critical for convincing North Korea to rein in its nuclear programme.

Drawing less scrutiny at the time was the hacking of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's emails, the contents of which were widely reported with damaging effect on the Democratic nominee.

Wolf, after covering Hillary Clinton for more than 15 years and looking at many of her public appearances, I found this to be perhaps the most astonishing Hillary Clinton appearance I've ever seen. Did we make mistakes?

Clinton was withering on her critique of President Trump's performance so far, including his obsession with recasting the result and what appears to be his lack of preparation on important issues. While she took responsibility for her role in the loss, she emphasized that FBI investigations into her emails and the scandal surrounding Russia Wikileaks are the real culprits. "We've got lots of other things to worry about".

"The reason why I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days". Did I make mistakes?

Later in the same conversation, Clinton also suggested debate questions were to blame, saying moderators didn't ask about how the candidates planned to created jobs. That's incontrovertible. We don't know the exact impact but just because she screwed up with her judgment and in the investigation of the e-mail server, does not mean she should have been subjected to something no citizen should be subjected to, including the leaks of interviews that were done in the process of the investigation by the FBI.That was absolutely totally appropriate.

Not missing her chance to take more jabs at Trump, Clinton cites the popular vote and asserts that she did win the majority vote in the election.

It doesn't appear Clinton is now planning another run for office. Clinton vowed to instead use her voice to help Democrats and speak out against any actions under the Trump presidency she considers to be harmful. She said he's not one of her fans and that misogyny is "part of the landscape, political and socially and economically".
