Hillary Clinton attended the very important Women for Women International conference in New York City where she was interviewed by CNN’s international (because she has an accent) correspondent Christiane Amanpour.
In the interview, Hillary said she should be our president and the reasons why she’s not are the FBI announcing they were going to reopen an investigation of her and Wikileaks exposing behind the scenes corruption in her campaign. She also mentioned she lost because people don’t like strong women in power, blah blah blah.
As she says in the interview, while minding her own business, she was “on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian- Wikileaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off. And the evidence for that intervening event is, uh, compelling, persuasive…”
In spite her saying in the interview that she takes full responsibility for losing the election, clearly she doesn’t. She also isn’t taking responsibility for the reasons why the Comey letter and Wikileaks hurt her as well. If I were Christiane Amanpour I would ask, what was it about those things that “scared off” voters from voting for you? Either they had good reason to not vote for you or they didn’t.
No matter what resulted from the FBI investigation into Hillary’s emails, it could not end well. The law is clear about the handling of classified information which is why Hillary was quick to deny there was no such information in her emails. She was either going to be indicted or it was going to look like a political whitewash. She could have survived a whitewashing but then husband Bill was caught paying a visit to the Attorney General in an Arizona tarmac days before it was announced she would not be indicted. The Clintons just don’t let up. Just when they’re out they pull themselves back in.
They somehow survived that (or did they?) but then her glorious emails found their way into the computer of disgraced former congressman Anthony Wiener, who was being investigated for pedophilia behavior. By now the country is really sick of her emails. FBI head James Comey was duty bound to inform Congress they were re-opening the investigation one week before election day. It’s understandable for the country to ask, just what are we voting for here? Hillary said in the interview all this “raised doubts” about her. Well, yea. Shouldn’t it? She’s correct in saying that it did but oblivious into the real reason why it should. It’s as though it had nothing to do with her.
Then there’s Wikileaks. That supposedly derailed her campaign too. But what was that about? Wikileaks was about exposing the Hillary campaigns successful attempt at swaying media coverage of her campaign along with the attempt to fix the primaries even going so far as cheating in the primary debates. “Russian hacks” were all about Hillary’s sordid behavior that we weren’t supposed to know about, so yeah, Hillary was right to say people were “scared off” from voting for her but she doesn’t seem to think it had anything to do with her.
What’s astonishing but not surprising is that “Russian hacking” is a Trump scandal. Hillary and the media are not the bad guys, Donald Trump is because a Russian guy slept at Trump Towers or some ridiculous nonsense and so that’s the collusion we should be focused on. Wikileaks was so damaging to Clinton you would think Trump was in collusion with Russia to publish it. But the leaks were damaging for a reason and it had everything to do with Hillary’s corruption. It’s remarkable how that key aspect is ignored. It’s as though corruption is a normal aspect of Hillary and we’re supposed to live with it.
In Hillary’s attempt to blame her loss on these factors she’s pretending she had nothing to do with them. Wikileaks and her emails just come out of the sky and hurt her for no fault of her own. All they did was tell the truth about Hillary but that’s tantamount to a smear. Hillary either lost because of the reasons she says or she’s attempting to not accept responsibility for a failed campaign. However you look at it there is no scenario to which we can attribute her loss that doesn’t have to do with why she should not be our president.
But she’s still the darling liberal by the media that sees her as a victim who was once again cheated out of her privilege.
