Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she takes personal responsibility for her 2016 election loss, but also pointed to the timing of a letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference as factors. “If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president," she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women event in New York. “It wasn’t a perfect campaign, there is no such thing, but I 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," she said. “The evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign." She also agreed that misogyny played a role in her loss. “Yes, I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well. Every day that goes by, we find out more about the unprecedented inference, including from a foreign power whose leader is not a member of my fan club," Clinton said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin. “It is real, it is very much a part of the landscape, political and socially and economically." Clinton also pointed out multiple times she won the popular vote, earning more votes than President Trump, despite losing the Electoral College and hence the White House.
