Clinton says collusion cost her election loss

Clinton says collusion cost her election loss

The former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee also touched on technology's role in the election at the Code Conference at Terranea Resort, hosted by tech news site Recode.

Clinton, who lost on Election Day to Trump and believes she would have won had it not been for Russian interference, said the current president and his allies are constantly trying to create diversions. "It's undisputed how close the margin was in the three states that made the difference", said Terry Shumaker, a longtime Clinton friend and former USA ambassador to Trinidad. "That changed this time".

Hillary Clinton has blamed her unexpected defeat in the U.S. presidential elections on a variety of factors including Russian meddling, her own party, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the media and "a very broad assumption that I was going to win". Wherever Trump campaigned, he took thousands of votes from her. "I got paid for the speeches I made", she said. "And then it was reignited and it became the major reason toward the end ... that I lost ground and ended up losing". "I'm looking forward", Mr. Ellison, Minnesota Democrat, said on MSNBC.

However, at the same time, Clinton also feels she was "the victim of the very broad assumption" that she was going to win. After posting, my tweets got way more attention than I'd expected, and most of it wasn't from people who actually cared about DNC data; it was from people who either wanted to re-argue last year's elections or enjoyed watching Dems fight amongst themselves. "It's absurd to suggest that any Democratic candidate who was using the DNC data in 2016 was inheriting nothing, as Secretary Clinton said".

Even with nearly 50 reporters devoted to constant attacks on Trump during the entire campaign, she couldn't stop him.

"What do you do to try to contain the weaponization and manipulation of that information?"

Abedin responds that she thinks it's okay, to which Clinton reiterates that she would rather have her own plane "of course".
