FBI, Puttin jointly cost me elections: Hillary Clinton

NEW YORK: Hillary Clinton laid the blame for her defeat in last year White House race squarely at the feet of FBI director James Comey and Russia Vladimir Putin, saying they had scared off voters. The Democrat, speaking at a charity luncheon in New York, said she took absolute personal responsibility for a series of campaign blunders that contributed to her loss to Donald Trump. But she pointed a finger at Russian hacking and interference and at the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who revealed just before the November 8 election he was re-opening a probe into Clinton use of a personal email server while serving as secretary of state. I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey 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, Clinton said. 02
