Accuracy in Media

Former President Bill Clinton blamed “that bogus email deal” and the Russians for the defeat of his wife Hillary in the presidential election last month. Clinton spoke briefly with reporters after casting his Electoral College vote for her in Albany, NY on Monday:

“I’ve never cast a vote I was prouder of. You know I watched her work for two years. I watched her battle through that bogus email deal and be vindicated at the end when Secretary [Colin] Powell came out. She fought through that. She fought through everything and she prevailed against it all. But you know, at the end we had the Russians and the email deal which she couldn’t prevail against that.”

When asked to clarify his remarks Clinton said, “The finest vote counter in America is Nate Silver and he told you what cost her the election,” before rushing off.

Clinton was referring to 538’s Nate Silver, who said that Clinton “almost certainly” would have won if not for the letter that FBI Director James Comey sent to lawmakers in October, which said that they had discovered new emails that were potentially relevant to the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server. Silver said that letter influenced late-deciding voters in swing states to vote for Trump.

Maybe a few voters were influenced by the Comey letter, but it’s highly unlikely that that would have been enough to turn Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin red for the first time in decades, as Clinton and the Democrats want people to believe.

Hillary Clinton lost for a number of reasons, from her inability to connect with voters to her actions in Benghazi that cost four Americans their lives, to name just two. In reality she was a flawed candidate with a lot of baggage, and that is really what she couldn’t overcome in the end.
