Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday blamed her loss in last year's presidential race on FBI director Jim Comey and WikiLeaks.
Citing Comey's letter about the investigation into her email server on Oct. 28, which was released just days before the election, Clinton said during an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour: "As Nate Silver, who doesn't work for me, he's an independent analyst, but one considered to be very reliable, has concluded, if the election had been on October 27th, I'd be your president. It wasn't."
"It wasn't a perfect campaign," Clinton said. "There is no such thing. 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. And the evidence for that intervening event is I think compelling, persuasive."
Referencing how, even though she lost the electoral vote, she won the popular vote, Clinton said: "I did win more than 3 million votes than my opponent."
