Hillary Clinton blames James Comey, Russian involvement for 2016 election loss

AOL.com Editors

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke out on Election Day results on Tuesday, describing Russian influence in the 2016 race as "very much a part of the political landscape."

"Every day that goes by, we learn more about some of the unprecedented interference," Clinton said of Russia's 2016 election involvement during a Tuesday interview on MSNBC. "[Putin] certainly interfered in our election ... to hurt me and to help my opponent."

"I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off," Clinton said. "And the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive."
