Hillary: I'm 'Part of the Resistance'

03 May 2017, 12:30 | Clarence Schmidt

Mr Comey, the FBI director, submitted a letter to the US Congress, in late October - just over a week before the US election - announcing he had reopened an investigation into Mrs Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.

Clinton's remarks - which echoed CIA comments branding WikiLeaks a "hostile intelligence service" abetted by the likes of Russian Federation - were the most extensive and direct about her loss since the shock result previous year.

Hillary Clinton declares that if the election had been held on October 27, 2016, she'd be president of the United States.

Hillary said, "I can't be anything other than who I am, and I've spent decades learning about what it would take to move our country forward, including people who clearly didn't vote for me".

She conceded she made mistakes, but added: "The reason I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days".

Clinton also added, "I was the candidate".

Asked whether misogyny played a role, Clinton said with a wry smile: "The book's coming out in the fall".

Trump blasts 'ridiculous' court ruling that blocked his order on sanctuary cities
Judge Orrick said that the language of the executive order made clear it sought to withhold funds beyond law enforcement. Orrick said his ruling does not affect the administration's ability to enforce existing conditions on federal grants.

Hillary Clinton had been dragging her feet about making her presidential bid official. "I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had". To try to make sure that we dealt with a lot of these hard issues that are right around the corner, like robotics and artificial intelligence, and things that are really going to be upending the economy, for the vast majority of Americans, to say nothing of the rest of the world.

Tuesday's comments were the first time Clinton had assessed blame for her loss to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and WikiLeaks.

The panel consisting of Dana Bash, Brianna Keilar, Nia-Malika Henderson, Wolf Blitzer, and David Gregory expressed surprise at what Clinton said, calling it "remarkable" and an "incredible interview". She said he's not one of her fans and that misogyny is "part of the landscape, political and socially and economically".

She said that during the campaign, she met people in central Pennsylvania that told her they only had dial-up service.

Not missing her chance to take more jabs at Trump, Clinton cites the popular vote and asserts that she did win the majority vote in the election.

"Yes, I do think it played a role". Authentically raw, authentically bitter, authentically pissed off, if you will, at these election results that while she noted she was taking responsibility, her name was on the ballot but clearly placing the bulk of the blame on Comey and on Putin for Wikileaks and clearly thinking that an election that she believed was sort of rightfully hers, that she was winning, she said, was taken away from her in those cases and she's clearly not resolved that yet. You'll read my confession and my request for absolution.
