Defeated 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is not giving up the notion that Russia doomed her White House chances. She's even writing a book about it.
Clinton's friends told The Hill that she is ready to put the whole story out there. Her version of it anyway.
“She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no uncertain terms,” one longtime ally said. “She wants the whole story out there from her own perspective. I think a lot of people are going to be really surprised by how much she reveals.”
In the weeks following her shock defeat to Donald Trump, Clinton blamed just about everyone around her. First it was FBI Director James Comey, who reopened her email investigation 11 days before the election. Then it was Russia, which the mainstream media has been obsessed with for months, trying to prove the Kremlin colluded with Trump. Then, it was misogyny. Then, it was the "bankrupt" DNC.
President Trump and his supporters have pushed back at her blame game initiative, responding that she was simply a "terrible candidate."
Members of her own party disagree with her plot line. Ahead of the unveiling of the Democrats' new "Better Deal" agenda, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said matter-of-factly that Russia was not to blame for the Democrats' loss. They lost because they did not properly voice their message. Hillary didn't properly voice their message.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” he told The Washington Post. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
No one bought her last book. What makes her think readers will be interested in a book of her whining?
