Hillary Clinton blames herself for election loss, and also misogyny, FBI, Russia

Hillary Clinton says the FBI, Russian interference and misogyny caused her to lose 2016 presidential election

During an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said, "I'm now back to being an activist citizen, and part of the resistance".

The President is extraordinarily touchy about the merest suggestion that his victory is not totally authentic. But she wouldn't apologize for her wonkiness and love of policy detail, even if that made it hard for her to connect with some voters. "Of course", she said.

"If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president", she said.

After Amanpour joked that Trump would likely tweet about that comment, Clinton replied, "Fine".

Although Clinton lost some states by very narrow margins (and easily won the popular vote) - which supports the idea of Russia/Comey tipping the balance - her team also took some states like Wisconsin and MI for granted and paid the price. "Talking about Clinton's numerous attacks against Trump during the interview, Keilar laughed, "[She was] downright trolling him, I think!"

"He should worry less about the election and my winning the popular vote than doing some other things that would be important for the country". Better than the interfering in foreign affairs.

TJ Watt Arrives in Pittsburgh
Sutton was a player I really liked, an intelligent ballhawk who would have gone much higher if not for a broken foot last season. Watt-the All-Pro and three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year-and Los Angeles Chargers fullback Derek Watt in the NFL.

Trump might also be up for a fight. The press came into the campaign with a biased view of Clinton and pre-baked narrative of "Clinton scandals" that they were waiting to fill.

"Remember, I did win more than 3 million votes than my opponent", she said.

"I can't be anything other than who I am", Clinton admitted.

However, Clinton said she was "not convinced [the strike] really made much of a difference" and said she was concerned about possible backroom deals the Trump administration may have made with Russian Federation, notifying them beforehand of the strikes against their ally.

She added, "I am writing a book and it's a painful process, reliving the campaign". "But the reason why I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days".

The FBI announced in the hours before the election that it had not found any evidence of wrongdoing, but not before Clinton's lead had shrunk to an average of two to three points.

Wang Yi and Rex Tillerson to meet amid tensions in Korean peninsula
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov cautioned on Friday that the use of force would be "completely unacceptable ". The UNSC also called for "a political and diplomatic solution" to the issue during the meeting, the statement added.

Her performance did not impress some critics. "There is no such thing", she said.

"I m happy to be the diversion", the former secretary of state said.

The 69-year-old former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state has spent decades in the public spotlight.

The event marks the latest where Clinton, in a stinging rebuke to Trump, both blames herself for the 2016 loss but also casts the current President as someone aided by outside factors, including the Russian government.

But a confidant of Clinton told CNN's Jeff Zeleny that "she is not running for anything - but she's just not hiding".
