Clinton Blames FBI Director for Her Loss

The defeated Democrat still thinks the email issue was bogus, even though she also thinks it cost her the election.

C-SPAN

After several days of soul-searching, Hillary Clinton has arrived at a hard-to-accept conclusion about why she lost the election: It was all James Comey's fault. In a conference call with major donors on Saturday, The New York Times reports, the Democratic presidential nominee said her campaign was derailed by the FBI director's announcements concerning a newly discovered cache of email that crossed the private server she improperly used as secretary of state. "Our analysis is that Comey's letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum," Clinton said.

Comey's handling of the emails—which were found on a computer belonging to former congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of key Clinton aide Huma Abedin, during an unrelated investigation of allegations that Weiner had engaged in online sex talk with an underage girl—was puzzling and controversial. He revealed their existence in a letter to members of Congress just 11 days before the election, then announced two days before the election that there was nothing in the correspondence to change his conclusion that it would not be appropriate to file criminal charges against Clinton in connection with her mishandling of classified material.

Clinton surely is right that the fresh attention Comey's statements brought to the email controversy did not help her, although it's debatable whether his statements played as big a role as she implies. But assuming that late-deciding voters held the issue against her, she has no one to blame but herself. For six months after her email practices at the State Department were revealed by The New York Times in March 2015, she treated the story as much ado about nothing, an annoying pseudo-controversy that was not worth addressing on its merits. Even after conceding that she had made a "mistake," she continued telling lie after lie in an attempt to minimize the gravity of her actions. That record of mendacity goes a long way toward explaining the amazing fact that voters in some surveys trusted her less than the notorious prevaricator she was running against.

Even in defeat, Clinton is still minimizing, saying concerns about her email practices have "proven to be…groundless." The fact that Comey did not recommend criminal charges does not mean there was no legitimate reason to be troubled by her arrogant disregard of State Department rules, her "extremely careless" handling of "very sensitive, highly classified information" (as Comey described it last July), or her consistent dissembling on the subject. Even Comey's conclusion that charges were not justified without evidence that Clinton knowingly broke the law is legally questionable, since people can be prosecuted for exposing classified information through "gross negligence."

Clinton still thinks the email issue is bogus, even though she also thinks it cost her the election. On Saturday, according to the Times, Clinton said Comey's second letter, confirming his conclusion that there is no basis to prosecute her, was "even more damaging" than his announcement that the FBI had found more emails to examine, causing a last-minute drop in swing-state poll numbers. In other words, a conclusion that Clinton views as completely exonerating her was not perceived that way by voters. Evidently they did not agree with her that she should not be faulted for her recklessness and lies as long as her actions fell short of a felony.

  1. “Evidently [voters] did not agree with her that she should not be faulted for her recklessness and lies as long as her actions fell short of a felony.”

    And perhaps some voters believe her actions *were* felonies.

    1. ^^^^THIS^^^^

      1. I’ve got my FIRST check total of $4800 for a week. Working from home saves money in several ways.I love this. I’ve recently started taking the steps to build my freelance Job career so that I can work from home. here is i started… https://goo.gl/52ubga

    2. Yeah, when the FBI director allows you to skate on acts of lawbreaking that are obvious to anyone with a security clearance (or, at least, anyone that can look up the relevant laws and read them), while fully pursuing prosecution for far lesser breaches of cybersecurity, being reminded again of the double-standard that will be applied to you with the levers of power in your hands tends to depress public support.

      1. I had to take my annual training on handling classified a couple months ago, and the training video actually said if you mishandle classified you can face prison time. Bitter laughter was all I could muster.

      2. Exactly! But I love the fact she blames Comey. It means she doesn’t have a clue why she really lost – and who is going to tell her? Bill? And if they did tell her, would she listen? Of course not.

        The more misguided and out-of-touch the Demoncraps are, the less credible a threat they are to humankind.

        I hear their solution to appealing to Trump voting Demoncraps is to get a black muslim to head up their party! Hil-freaking-larious!

  2. I’m not shocked that she puts the blames every one but herself. Seeing her political career ended is sweet,and her whining makes it more more so.

    1. Goes to show that these types of people are not in politics for The People. They use political office like a piggy bank and hers got hit with a hammer and the change is needed to pay bills- big quid pro quo bills.

      1. Hadn’t thought of the repercussions until you mentioned piggy bank — I wonder what the loss of power will do to her speaking fees and donations to her foundation? I wonder how many foundation donors will think they are owed a refund? I wonder how many will threaten public exposure if they don’t get a refund?

        1. She will still make millions and Bill ain’t no chump on getting high speaking fees. The problem for Hillary is she made promises that she now never can repay because she will never be president. The cronies will just move on to the next corrupt politician.

          Look at Hillary’s face during her two appearances after the defeat. She knows and is scared that she is going to prison. I will even give her the spread that she will be indicted and then be acquitted by a sympathetic jury.

          1. I wouldn’t be shocked if Obama, citing Ford & Nixon, gave her a blanket pardon on his way out the door “so the country can put this behind us and move forward.”

            1. I don’t think President-elect Trump has any intention of prosecuting her, but he will leave it hanging in hope that President Obama will take the bait and give her a pardon, harming the President in the eyes of the public and convincing people who weren’t sure, yet, that she is indeed a crook.

            2. How could he pardon someone who hasn’t been charged?

              1. How could he pardon someone who hasn’t been charged?

                Because you don’t need an indictment, just the threat of criminal action–that’s why Ford pardoned Nixon, even though he hadn’t actually been charged with anything yet. His whole purpose was to avoid a years-long public fight and get the country focused on other things.

                He and the party paid for it in the short-term, but that was probably going to happen anyway. In the long run, it probably saved the country a lot of divisive heartburn.

                Trump damn well should indict the bitch, but I suspect he won’t because he’s got bigger fish to fry now than enacting a political vendetta that won’t do anything but further piss off the already unhinged leftists rioting in the streets right now. Preet’s already digging into the Foundation, so Trump will probably just give him free reign to be the attack dog while keeping his own hands clean in the process.

              2. I gave you a specific example in Ford/Nixon.

          2. She’s not going to prison, you idiots have been fed a steady stream of propaganda for 25 years and you are not in touch with reality.

            1. She’s not going to the White House either, and that is really all that matters, isn’t it?

            2. Can I buy stock in your salt mine?

            3. Did the widdle guy get hurt feelings? Tell us where it hurts.

            4. Thanks for Correcting the Record.

        2. I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that 2016 will go down as the record year for Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative donations.

          However, they didn’t call him the Comeback Kid for nothing.

          1. I will also go out on a limb and predict that in 2017 Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative donations will disappear like a fart in a hurricane.

            1. I’ll take some of that action. The Foundation will be alive and well, riding the coattails of next line oligarchy, Chelsea.

              Honestly, I hope beyond hope, that the FBI continues to investigate the Foundation, and eventually can also ensnare Chelsea to prevent her from ever reaching a political office.

          2. Without the quid pro quo, the essential power and influence behind the Foundation, it will whither. Or do you honestly think those contributors were handing over huge sums of cash for the betterment of humankind? Seriously? You’re kidding, right?

            1. The donors may want more than their money back. Watch your back Hillary

        3. ” I wonder how many foundation donors will think they are owed a refund?”

          It will be a cold day in hell when a Clinton gives money back to donor. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if a number of donors fail to make good on their pledges.

        4. I wonder what the loss of power will do to her speaking fees and donations to her foundation?

          If it were a publicly-traded corporation the Dodd-Frank implications would be delicious.

          1. She would have to report her RoHS and REACH data?

            /annoyed engineer who has to deal with this crap instead of working on designs

        5. her speaking fees will go up because she is now the woman who was damaged by the right wing conspiracy and how all women need to continue to fight on. the Foundation will fade away until Chelsa needs it when she runs for office

    2. Seeing her political career ended is sweet,and her whining makes it more more so.

      I wouldn’t bet on her political career being ended. Remember, she is good friends with the President-elect and he may very well have some use for her talents.

      1. Trump should appoint her ambassador to Libya.

          1. *continuing thunderous applause*

            1. I third that thunderous applause.

        1. Nice!

        2. WTF-
          Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

      2. I doubt Donald Trump is THAT dumb. He’s not going to put himself between a Clinton and power.

    3. Dont assume it’s over. Think like a magician… It’s quiet from camp clinton… Too quiet.

      1. Clintonbot can now take her hundreds of millions of dollars and invest it in Cyberdyne Systems instead of using taxpayer money to build Skynet. As long as I don’t have to hear that horrible shriek for a few years, I’m ok with that.

  3. She can blame whomever she wants for her loss. If you believe what she says at all, you should get your head examined.

    She lost for many reasons including the the USA still being in the Great Recession, her economic plan, her catering to special interests, her many bad years of government service, her mishandling classified information and violating FOIA laws, her being an interventionist, her being a progressive liberal, etc.

    1. not to mention those incredibly crappy pants suits or the creepy cackle laugh to go with the creepy cankles…

    2. And a decade of progressives telling white voters that they are racist, Islamophobic, homophobic, xenophobic, cis-gendered, white-privileged shitlords … even if they were raised in a trailer park and now work 60 hours/week striving to eke out a lower middle-class standard of living, which has only gotten more difficult under a progressive regime.

      1. Yes. This.

        The conventional wisdom is Trumpkins are white supremacists, racists, etc. From my perspective, it is the progressive left that is racist, but their racism is quite acceptable to them and any attempt to point that out is shouted down by them as RACIST.

        We are doomed.

  4. Whan an entitled, arrogant elitist! She should be kissing the FBI director’s ass for trying to save her from the sort of criminal punishment a peon would get for the same conduct. But she’s mad at him for publicly contemplating the possibility of criminal prosecution, even though he later decided against it.

    The USA had a narrow escape. Trump would have to work overtime to be as sleazy and vindictive as this. I’m not saying he won’t manage it, just that it would be tough.

    1. The media is working over time to dictate to the new Trump administration that having her reinvestigated and indicted by the government would make her a martyr.

      Who cares, if she becomes a martyr? She should be properly investigated, indicted, arrested, given bail and given a jury trial like every one else.

      1. What they don’t mention is that they (the media) are the ones who would proclaim her a martyr.

        And if Hillary’s treatment of Comey is any indication, she won’t show any gratitude to Trump if he lets her off the hook.

        1. The talking heads are saying letting her off is good for the country.

          What is good for the USA is restoring Rule of Law. Indicting that corrupt bitch is super helpful to restoring that.

          1. Trump’s a NYC real estate developer (well, at least originally). He’s not exactly new to this rodeo. He’s not going to pardon her and he’s not going to prosecute her. Having her prosecutable at his convenience is exactly where he should want her.

      2. It just occurred to me that their might be some other countries that want a shot at her but don’t have the evidence. Just send a bunch of documented corruption and graf their way and let them do the dirty work

        1. You mean for he behavior as Sos? That wouldn’t be a good idea, dragging her into foreign courts.

          1. As much as she belongs in prison, it would be a yuuuge distraction right now. I’d rather Trump concentrate on rolling back executive orders, restoring gun rights, repealing Obamacare, and in general rolling back all the trash of the last 8^W16^W24^Wzillion years.

            1. Trump will do all that in 3-6 months.

              Her Due Process trial proceedings would take years. By the time Hillary’s fate is coming due, Trump will either be super unpopular and a single term president, Trump will be fairly popular or Trump will be needing everyone to block his authoritarian Executive.

      3. She deserves a fair trial and a first-class hangin’.

        However, I think a South African style truth and reconciliation commission would be in order for the Clinton Crime Family. Allow 12 months for all participants from the capo di tutti capi to the lowest of its soldiers to come forward and publicly confess their crimes without fear of criminal prosecution. After that, fair trials and appropriate punishments for all. A first-class hangin’ would be appropriate for murder and treason, and supporting Al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria might just qualify.

        1. The fair trials and appropriate punishments are for all those who failed to come forward.

    2. The FBI should make known to the Clintons all the evidence of corruption they have against them and leak a few choice bits to the press. In exchange for not prosecuting and further ruining their reputation the Clintons agree to go away, forever.

      1. That is corruption!

        You don’t make deals. If there is probable cause, you indict and let a jury decide.

        1. It’s a clean solution to what would be a distraction to the more important goals of the new administration. And hopefully one that the Clintons would respect as that is how they operate.

          Not that seeing them behind bars would be something I would love to see.

        2. Yes it is. And what makes you think Donald Trump is above corruption?

    3. With half of Washington out for our ass, most of us would welcome and appreciate somebody like Comey who was willing to put his ass on the line to let us keep our freedom and fortune intact, and the only punishment being that we wouldn’t get a job we wanted…but the Clintons don’t appreciate people who sacrifice for them, they expect it. From all that I can tell, you don’t want them as an enemy and you don’t want them as a friend, you just don’t want to know them.

      1. Sorry, but Comey was not being brave nor putting his ass on the line.

        He made a deal and helped try and protect Hillary. He should be investigated and indicted for corruption.

        Trump was pretty brave going after all these corrupt government types. He has Obama, Hillary, Lynch, Comey and all Hillary supporters looking scared shitless.

        I just hope the Secret Service continues to do a good job and protect him, so he can drain the swamp. He might fill it back up again, but at least we can see Hoffa’s body.

        1. yes nothing fights corruption like a single party state. Look at Obama’s first 2 years or post 9/11 Bush administration …. clearly we have learned that removing all of that separation of powers nonsense prodcues solid governance like the Iraq war, ACA, torture, drones, et al. now that the One True Party has congress & the white house under the esteemed Dear Leader all civil rights will be restored & social problems solved.

  5. Interesting post-election period we are having, huh? The press went through about a 12 hour stretch of self-examination. Even the NYT came out and “rededicated” themselves to being fair and accurate in their reporting.

    And then last night we get the first post-election interview with the new President elect. Among the questions in the friendly interview, she pressed him to take responsibility for all of the hate crimes that have followed his election. So he duly condemned such actions.

    Meanwhile, after a week of demonstrations and riots fomented, cheered and supported by her supporters and surrogates… nothing from Hillary. Complaints that her election defeat wasn’t fair. But no real concession (remember, she said “I called to congratulate him”, never directly offering her congratulations in public). And nobody has called on her to quell the unrest and violence being perpetrated in her name. Nobody has called on her to repudiate the racist attacks that have taken place in her name. Nobody has called her to account for what her largest supporters are saying and doing – people like Michael Moore, Madonna, etc., groups like Acorn and #BLM..

    Nope. The press has gotten over their 12 hour fit of conscience and moved on with carrying out the HRC campaign agenda, pressing stories that the campaign wants pressed, taking angles that the campaign wants them to take, ignoring stories that it wants ignored.

    And folks wonder why the people don’t trust them.

    1. This is Nanny-Police-State ain’t going to keep going without the dedication of slavers like Hillary.

    2. To tie the connection in a little bow, from what I can tell the “racist attacks” that have actually been documented are largely people yelling racist things at anti-Trump protesters and holding racist signs in counter protests.

      Which appears to be one of the goals of the activist portion of the anti-Trump protests. Get a mob to run around calling white people racist long enough and you’ll troll out a few actual racists to give you the finger. Or maybe not even an actual racist, just someone pissed off enough at being called names that he responds in kind.

    4. “Even the NYT came out and “rededicated” themselves…”

      I initially read that as “redacted” themselves, which would be far more preferable.

    5. “…all of the hate crimes that have followed his election.”

      False. Flags.

      1. No not false flags. Progressive on conservative violence.

        The video of the Trump supporter in Chicago getting beaten is harrowing.

        Progressives are God Damn Fascist assholes!!

        1. Case in point. I haven’t seen any national news outlets running that story. I’ve seen video clips and pictures of swastikas though. And a clip of someone yelling the dreaded N word at an anti-Trump protest. Those things make the national news… even if the provenance is questionable.

          But clips of actual hate crimes – violent attacks based on race and explicitly inspired by HRC Anti-Trump motives? Nah, that didn’t merit a mention. Because it doesn’t fit the narrative, but more importantly it runs against the agenda.

          I’ve probably complained a half-dozen times over the last year on this board about people forcing me into the position of having to defend Trump, and here we go again. We have a reality in which there is some degree of organic anti-Trump reaction, and a whole lot of ginned up protest in support of the DNC and progressive agenda intended solely to damage the president-elect, and all of the news coverage is slanted toward just how bad this means Trump is and how he must somehow atone and assuage the protesters.

          At this point the part that really worries me is that such transparent and stupid tactics are taken seriously by people who aren’t mentally ill.

    1. Through a cracked mirror of their own propaganda?

  6. Her tie-in with Watergate, as a lawyer for the hearings, is quite the coincidence. That was the first real political scandal I paid attention too, other than the corrupt and incompetent Vietnam War. Nixon and his gang continually claimed “I know nuthink, nuthink!” and I figured either they were lying their asses off or they were so blindingly incompetent they they didn’t deserve to run my life too.

    Same here. Either she is so blindingly incompetent that she belongs in asissted living, or she’s so fucking evil that she belongs in prison.

    1. I can’t recall?

    2. she belongs in assisted living, or … she belongs in prison.
      Both.

    3. “Either she is so blindingly incompetent that she belongs in asissted living, or she’s so fucking evil that she belongs in prison.”
      At this point what difference would it make?

  7. Even Comey’s conclusion that charges were not justified

    Yeah, except that was Comey’s conclusion. Instead it was that ‘no reasonable prosecutor would,bring charges at this time’. Which is pure supposition in his part, and reflective of the political situation at the time – not the underlying facts of the case – as proved by his later assertion that any other person acting in a similar way would in fact be prosecuted.

    1. If you parse Comey’s words correctly, you’ll understand that he was quite correct when he said, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.”

      A reasonable prosecutor would consider the fact that he couldn’t persuade a jury to convict a Clinton, even if he were to survive long enough to argue his case before a jury. And, even if he were to survive, he’d understand that the Clintons would summon all the dark forces at their command and expend any resources necessary to ruin his career and his reputation regardless of verdict.

      1. It was a political cop-out by Comey.

        “reasonable” prosecutors bring charges that they know a jury will not convict more frequently than people think.

        I think Hillary might actually find a single jury member sympathetic to her cause and vote not-guilty and hold firm. Hillary would never take a plea bargain.

        The point is that there is probable cause for a grand jury to indict Hillary and that process should be started after Trump is inaugurated.

  8. Hillary, and I mean this with all due respect, it’s time to go the fuck away and never come back.

    Good riddance, bitch.

    Again, with all due respect….

  9. Oh and clearly her loss is more the fault of the Russians and Pepe.

    KEK!

    1. know who else’s fault it was?

      1. This time the answer is Trump, always Trump.

        1. Did you not read the article? haha. Its Comey!

      2. Hitler?

  10. Hillary should be kissing Comey’s feet in gratitude for all the backflips he did to avoid charging her with a couple thousand felony counts. The Espionage Act doesn’t require intent at all, negligence is quite sufficient.

    Not to mention the fact that her entire purpose of running her own e-mail server in the first place was to evade her legal duty under the FOIA and the Official Records Act.

    -jcr

    1. Mishandling classified information is bad.

      I could see the argument that violations of the FOIA are as bad or worse.

      Mishandling classified information might or might not hurt American interests (not saying that is necessary to charge her). Purposely avoiding open government by violating the FOIA, always hurts American interests.

  11. Hillary was responsible for setting up a private server to evade FOIA. In the course of an investigation of sexual misconduct of a child involving the husband of her closest aide, e-mail related to Hillary’s private server was discovered among the 650,000 e-mails on the pervert’s computer. This is pretty scandalous. In fact, it’s criminal.

    Obviously, Hillary Clinton lost the election due to Comey’s failure to cover up the scandal. Loretta Lynch did her part. The media did its part. Obama didn’t betray her despite their history. Obviously, it’s all Comey’s fault. Well, maybe it’s a little bit Obama’s fault for not coming down on Comey like a ton of bricks.

    1. Comey would have just resigned if Obama came down on him too hard.

      A deal was made between Comey, Lynch, Obama and Hillary. I suspect a more cushy job for Comey. The Hillary investigation was going to be leaked, so Comey agreed to damage control. It didn’t work.

      1. That’s pretty much my point. It’s all Comey’s fault.

        1. My point is that its Hillary’s fault along with Comey, Obama, Lynch and other conspirators.

          It’s a conspiracy for real!

    2. “Obviously, Hillary Clinton lost the election due to Comey’s failure to cover up the scandal. Loretta Lynch did her part. The media did its part. Obama didn’t betray her despite their history. Obviously, it’s all Comey’s fault. Well, maybe it’s a little bit Obama’s fault for not coming down on Comey like a ton of bricks.”

      Whoa easy there chief, remember this is the most transparent administration ever. Truth and accountability. This administration is making sure that you have all the facts. They wouldn’t lie to you or cover up things. Besides it just personal emails. Do we really need to know about Hillary’s new edible underwear for Bill, or how her increased fiber intake has helped keep her bowels motile.

  12. You messed with the bull, you got the fucking horns. Evil arrogant bitch needs to go away and never be heard from again. I was amazed at the number of Proggies that have FINALLY started to accept that Clinton was the most derptastic, corrupt, mendacious and venal career politico they could have nominated. The DNC flamed out the same way the RNC did in 2012 with Mittens.

    The only thing that I can hope for (and even that is fading fast) is that we will cease drone bombing brown people all over the Middle East and begin disengaging our military leviathan before we really pick a fight we can’t win. As it is, we’re heading for that fiscal cliff anyway and I’m unsure if we’re gonna slam on brakes or just stomp on the accelerator (given Drumpf’s statements, I expect the latter).

    1. There are a number of areas where I think Trump will be better than Clinton: Supreme Court, 2nd Amendment, curtailing the expansion of the regulations especially global warming regulations, taxes. He’ll probably be better at working with Russians rather than antagonizing them and, if we’re lucky, he might be less prone to engage in stupid wars. But on all other matters military he’s probably going to be as bad as or worse than Hillary. And that’s pretty horrible.

      Fun facts: Obama also the only two-term US president to have been at war every single day of his presidency, wars that he commanded against Muslims. Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize chiefly for his Cairo speech on Islam in 2009.

      1. LBJ was a war president too. Advisors in Vietnam were getting killed. War is hell!

  13. I don’t see what Hillary has to complain about. She got a pass on an obvious crime simply because she is a high-placed member of the political elite. Must be nice.

    1. It’s not enough. It’s never enough! *bloodcurdling cackle*

  14. Not surprising that Clinton would refuse to take accountability. No doubt this is how she would have ruled as well.

    1. As to that there is 0 doubt; she has never taken responsibility [vast right wing conspiracy, anyone?] so why would she have started there.

      Now she can live out the rest of her life and go to her death bed mouthing “Comey, fuck Obama and black people who couldn’t bother to vote, deplorables, it was my time…”

  15. In a close election, lots of different things can be correctly blamed for a loss.

    I find it nauseating to suggest that there’s something wrong with the system itself because Hilary lost.

    “Because Hillary Clinton lost” isn’t a good reason to change anything.

    1. Ken, Ken, Ken…how can you be so callous…don’t you know when someone like Hilary Clinton is denied her birthright, there is an obvious flaw in the system!!!!!

  16. “Clinton still thinks the email issue is bogus, even though she also thinks it cost her the election.”

    You may not agree that it was either, but I don’t see how this is a contradiction.

    1. She thinks the email issue is bogus because she thought the rules others have to follow don’t apply to her.

  17. I blame my dog for my farts. Hillary is blaming everybody for her lost.

    1. but your farts are no were near as sweet as Hillary’s loss…

  18. Her inability to have a concession speech prepared because she didn’t consider the possibility she could lose, speaks volumes.

    1. Deliciously so.

    2. I think she wouldn’t have been able to deliver one even if she had it. My guess is she was too busy throwing a tantrum and breaking things, while blaming everyone for her loss. She chose to leave her own supporters hanging.

      Reminds me of that joke about the politician that gives his concession speech by saying: “A big FU for all of those that voted against me, and a bigger FU for those that did”…

    3. Volumes indeed. Speaks directly to character and ineptness. How can you not be prepared with such a basic thing?

      She’s no leader of citizens. All she knows is contempt.

  19. Shrillary Dear,

    You lost because you are a felonious, self-centered, unprincipled, leather-lunged bitch. Even with the media excusing your every blunder, you lost against Trump. This suggests that you would have difficulty running against a teetotaling candidate in Glasgow. Please take your marbles and go the fuck home.

  20. Uh, her actions did not fall short of a felony. They were, by definition, felonious. Comey as well stated outright that one of us peasants would have been skullfucked to the fullest extent of the law for doing exactly what we all know she did.

  21. Where did you drag up that soft-focus shot of the bitch? Her ‘staff’ must have spent hours ‘shopping that image.

  22. Her cluelessness is astounding. Maybe we should start taking bets on whether she tries to run again in 2020.

    The American people don’t want you Hillary. TAKE THE HINT.

    1. She has nothing to live for now, she will never take the hint.

  23. Comey would not have been making public declarations of Hrod’s guilt/non-guilt (guilt), had there not been an extremely troubling meeting between Bill and Loretta.

  24. Anyone’s fault but your own, right Hill?

  25. RE: Clinton Blames FBI Director for Her Loss
    The defeated Democrat still thinks the email issue was bogus, even though she also thinks it cost her the election.

    Of course its FBI Director’s fault for Comrade Hillary losing.
    After all, Comrade Hillary has never done anything wrong or has made any mistakes in her life. Her past has shown that many times. One only has to look at her record on Whitewater, the Haitian crisis, and Benghazi.
    That should tell you everything you need to know about her.

  26. Clinton Blames FBI Director for Her Loss
    The defeated Democrat still thinks the email issue was bogus, even though she also thinks it cost her the election.

    At this point, what difference does it make?

  27. I repeat.

    She’s a loser and a sociopath.

  28. That record of mendacity goes a long way toward explaining the amazing fact that voters in some surveys trusted her less than the notorious prevaricator she was running against.

    Trump’s alot of things, but what makes him a notorious liar ? What has he said that isn’t true, what lies are even close to morally equivalent to Hillary’s lies ?

  29. They can’t think of any other reason why she lost, so they determined that it must have been Comey. All other possibilities are impossible to consider or even to imagine.

    It is like global warming – there is some warming, but they can’t think of any other reason than that human beings are evil and are responsible for it. No other reason is possible.

  30. Hillary Clinton is not President elect because:
    .
    * Hillary Clinton was the wrong candidate;
    * Hillary Clinton was the candidate for the status quo when the voters were demanding change;
    * Hillary Clinton is perceived by voters as dishonest and untrustworthy;
    * Hillary Clinton stole the Democratic Party’s Presidential nomination from Bernie Sanders;
    * Hillary Clinton’s theft of the Democratic nomination was aided & abetted by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC, and the Democratic superdelegates.

    .

    Hillary Clinton lost this election that could have and would have been won by Sen. Bernie Sanders if Hillary Clinton had not stolen the nomination from him.

    Hillary Clinton lost this election all by herself because of her hubris.

    Hillary Clinton’s hubris has resulted in the execrable Republicans controlling the federal government: Legislative; Executive; and Judicial.
    .
    Voters who voted for the greater good instead of the lesser evil are not to blame for Hillary Clinton losing this election, Hillary Clinton is responsible.

  31. Uh, her actions did not fall short of a felony. They were, by definition, felonious. Comey as well stated outright that one of us peasants would have been skullfucked to the fullest extent of the law for doing exactly what we all know she did.

  32. Reality check: The only people who gave a crap about those e-mails were hardcore Republicans who had already decided to vote for Trump. Hillary lost the election because she spent all her time talking about how bad Trump was instead of addressing the issues that Americans actually care about.

  33. until I looked at the paycheck saying $4730 , I did not believe that…my… brother woz like actualy bringing in money part time from there computar. . there friend brother started doing this for less than 7 months and resently paid for the morgage on there home and bought a new Cadillac …….
