Hillary Clinton pounds NY Times for 'schizophrenic' email coverage

Hillary Clinton pounds NY Times for 'schizophrenic' email coverage”

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday continued blaming James Comey for her election loss, saying the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director should have asked her permission back in October to look at her emails.

She lamented Green Party nominee Jill Stein earning enough votes in swing states, such as Wisconsin, to tip the outcome from Clinton to Trump.

Investigators were not sure at the time whether the emails were a new tranche of Clinton documents or whether she had already provided them to the State Department.

"We now know that Facebook was taking money from Russian companies to run negative stories about me", she stated. 'I was just dumbfounded'.

"He, I think, forever changed history", Clinton said bluntly of Comey, echoing the sentiment of her new memoir, "What Happened" and leaving the door open to the possibility that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director harbored an animus towards her.

She also expressed that voter identification laws, which she labeled "voter suppression", was also responsible for her loss.

'He could have called me up ... and say, "Hey can we look at this new stuff?'"

"Look, absent that, and I believe the evidence shows, I would have won", Clinton said.

"Over the years, going all the way back to the Whitewater inquisition, it's seemed as if many of those in charge of political coverage at the New York Times have viewed me with hostility and skepticism", she wrote. - Clinton claims she takes full responsibility for her stunning loss to Donald Trump. "He should have been disciplined-whether or not fired, that's not for me to say".

"He could have called me up. He himself admitted that before Congress", she said, referring to Comey. "What I try to do in the book is to put forth all the information that I think should trouble Americans, whether you're Republicans or Democrats or anything else".

Clinton also said she could not say for sure that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation on the election.

The former secretary also wrote about sexism in her new book, and said that research supports the idea that race is a "much more motivating factor" for voters than gender, but at the same time, highly successful women have a hard time being liked.

After mentioning the 'mistakes that I made, ' Clinton asked: 'What about endemic sexism and misogyny?
