Hillary Clinton blames Comey, WikiLeaks and 'misogyny' for 2016 loss


Hillary Clinton on Thursday narrowed down the "determinative" reasons for her 2016 presidential loss to two factors: FBI Director James Comey and WikiLeaks.

During an appearance at the eighth annual Women in the World Summit in New York City, Clinton said her team and supporters have been spending time "trying to piece it all together" — referring to why she lost to President Trump.

She noted that there were "lots of contributing factors" and said her campaign and she herself "certainly could have done better."






"Certainly misogyny played a role," Clinton noted. "That just has to be admitted."

But, she narrowed it down to two incidents, which notably were outside of her control, that struck the killing blow to her campaign.
