Hillary Clinton may have conceded to her Republican rival after the dramatic defeat but while she goes down in history as a loser in America’s most bizzare voting results, the Democrat says FBI Director James Comey should take the blame.
Mrs Clinton chose to speak up following the wild protests from her die-hard supporters who are saying NO to TRUMP.
Reports confirm however that what the former Secretary of State is saying isn’t actually what she wanted but what those fanatical supporters expected her to say as the nation is torn into two.
The 69-year-old proved herself a good politician by conceding after a clear loss to Trump, knowing it was in America’s interest to do so.
However, someone has to take the fall for her ridiculous loss. She proceeded with a gracious and diplomatic concession speech but quickly left the stage to blame James Comey [the FBI Director], who she said, carefully or ignorantly plotted her downfall.
In a conference call organized by Mrs Clinton last Saturday, she said Comey’s ill-timed letter to the U.S. Congress which informed the governmental body that fresh email leads had been discovered in her ongoing probe, was to blame for the loyalty switch from supporters.
Clinton’s State Department has been under investigation for an alleged wrongful and illegal email practices.
Comey’s FBI Department retreated from its earlier notification, telling the Congress two weeks later, a few days before America’s presidential election, that the investigation was closed “because his bureau found no merit in the case.”
The ridiculous claim from FBI smeared the office with allegations of corruption and lack of independence, giving Donald Trump an avenue to exploit against his Democratic counterpart.
According to media reports, “Clinton reportedly mentioned that even though the second letter cleared her of any wrongdoing – the damage had already been done and both of the letters were then being used by Trump to attack her in his campaign speeches.”
To prove a point that Mrs Clinton may be right with her accusations, opinion polls ironically showed that she was leading Trump [with a 4 to 5 points] just before the second FBI letter was revealed.
Mr Trump found strength in the alleged control over FBI’s independence and attacked the political system, making claims that the system had been rigged due to Mrs Clinton’s political connections.
He reportedly told his supporters at a rally in the Detroit suburbs, that it would have been impossible for the FBI to review as many as 650,000 emails in such a short time.
He told his supporters in Michigan: “Right now she’s being protected by a rigged system. It’s a totally rigged system. I’ve been saying it for a long time. Hillary Clinton is guilty, she knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it and now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8.”
“The investigations into her crimes will go on for a long time.
“The rank-and-file special agents at the FBI won’t let her get away with her terrible crimes,” he threatened.
Meanwhile, Mrs Clinton is pointing fingers, too. She told New York Times: “There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful.
“Our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.”
For Jim Manley, a Democratic strategist, Mrs Clinton has only herself to blame for her political woes. He wrote on Twitter: “If there had been no private server in the first place there would not have been an FBI investigation.”
