After Clinton Again Says FBI Cost Her the Presidency, Trump Drops the Hammer in Late Night Tweets

On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton once again revisited her failed 2016 campaign to talk about where it all went wrong.

While the two-time unsuccessful presidential candidate has had nearly half a year to reflect on her loss, it seems that not much about that analysis has changed, as she’s still mostly blaming forces outside of her control.

As CNN notes, it looks like President Trump took note of that interview, too, firing back at his former rival with a pair of late-night tweets on Tuesday.

Clinton’s comments about who’s to ‘blame’ came during the Women for Women International event on Tuesday afternoon, where she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour:

“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 28th and Russian [hacking of emails leaked to] WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off.

… if the election had been on October 27th I’d be your president.”

It was a take that the president clearly didn’t agree with, writing later that night:

Trump wrote:

FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds!

The phony Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?

Trump new comments also seem to tie in closely with his long-held campaign promise to “get a special prosecutor to look into” Clinton’s email server case.

It was a decision from which he backed off following his win, reportedly because he felt that Clinton had already “been through enough.”

The Clinton camp has reportedly not yet responded to the president’s newest messaging.
