"Who told them? Who were they coordinating with, or colluding with?"
Karoun Demirjian of the Washington Post argued that it would be more productive for Clinton to take responsibility for her loss before she addresses the problems she thinks the party should fix. She claimed that the DNC's data was "mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong" and claims she had to inject money into the DNC to keep it running. "I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians", the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate quipped on Wednesday. "At some point it sort of bleeds into misogyny", she said.
Clinton has also placed partial blame on fake news about her being widely spread on Facebook and now ex-FBI director James Comey re-opening his probe into her misuse of government email.
According to Clinton, it was not her fault that she lost the election to Donald Trump.
"[People] were anxious that I was going to jail, anxious that I was running a child trafficking operation in the basement of a pizzeria". Had he lost the election, you can bet that he would've been whining about his loss with much more vitriol than Clinton.
Russia's meddling in the election, the Wikileaks hacks, the coverage of her private email server and even Comey's actions fall in the latter column. There's also the fact - as Clinton has become fond of noting - that she won the popular vote over Trump by nearly 3 million votes. "I'm leaning Trump", she said.
Those three states proved decisive for President Trump and, especially in the case of MI and Wisconsin, were neglected by the Clinton campaign.
Multiple investigations into potential ties between Trump associates and Russia, as well as Russian interference in the US election, are ongoing. "In large part thanks to years of heavy casualties and dishonest official statements about Vietnam, and deep differences over civil rights and poverty here at home", Clinton said.
Consequently, she said she understood why "people on their Facebook pages" could come across a falsified story about her and not question its validity.
One former Clinton adviser who has been in touch with her since Election Day was blunt in their assessment of Clinton's recent venting about the circumstances surrounding her defeat.
He added that Clinton's "conspiracy theory" must have tacitly included a way to "bamboozle" Pennsylvanians into electing a Republican president for the first time since 1988.
