Clinton blames Comey letters for defeat. Hillary Clinton pinned the blame for her defeat on FBI Director James Comey's letters about her email arrangement in a conference call with her top campaign contributors on Saturday afternoon.
Speaking with Democrats who raised over $100,000 for her failed bid for the presidency, the former secretary of state said Comey's second letter — just three days before the election — did more damage than the first, which landed just 11 days out, according to one individual on the call, who described her tone as clearly sad but hopeful. Story Continued Below Clinton told participants that the campaign's data saw her numbers plunge after the first letter, then rebounded.
But the second letter, she said, awakened Donald Trump's voters. Clinton has kept a low profile since delivering the concession speech after her stunning loss on Wednesday morning, but finger-pointing has begun among Democrats about what went wrong.

Criticized by Candidates, Comey Has Tense Days Ahead After Election. Mrs.
Clinton has sidestepped questions about whether, if she is elected, she intends to keep Mr. Comey in his job. Her surrogates and supporters say firing him, while legal, would be politically impossible. “The political cost of firing him is greater than the political cost of keeping him,” said James M. Cole, who recently served as deputy attorney general and who signed a Clinton campaign letter criticizing Mr. James Comey’s Self-Righteous Meddling. Photo There are two possible explanations for James Comey’s decision to announce last week that he was examining emails that “appear to be pertinent” to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
One explanation, which I tend to believe, is that Comey, the director of the F.B.I., set out to interfere in the campaign on behalf of the Republican Party, a shocking act that would render him unfit for his powerful office. (In that scenario, the aim may have not primarily been to help Donald Trump, but to preserve the Republican majorities in Congress, which suddenly seemed in danger this fall. Can you imagine how intense the pressure on Comey from the Hill must have been following his announcement this summer that the investigation was being closed?) The other possible explanation is that he acted out of what you might charitably call a sense of moral rectitude. Certainly, Comey was not acting out of respect for protocol, ethics and procedure.

F.B.I.’s Email Disclosure Broke a Pattern Followed Even This Summer. The mood at the F.B.I. is dark, and nobody is willing to predict what the coming days will bring, particularly if agents and analysts do not complete their review of Ms.

Comprendre l'affaire des emails d'Hillary Clinton en quatre points. À dix jours du scrutin pour l'élection présidentielle américaine, le FBI a relancé l'enquête sur la messagerie privée d'Hillary Clinton.
Celle-ci pourrait avoir des répercussions importantes sur la campagne de la candidate. ● Quelle est l'origine du scandale? L'usage frauduleux de la messagerie par la candidate remonte au mois de janvier 2009, lorsque Hillary Clinton arrive au département d'Etat américain. Elle décide de continuer à utiliser son adresse mail personnelle plutôt que la messagerie officielle de l'administration qui est mise à sa disposition. Cet usage est totalement interdit par la loi fédérale, qui instaure que les correspondances officielles soient entièrement conservées.
Whoever Wins the White House, This Year’s Big Loser Is Email. The answer, of course, is that email is as tempting as it is inescapable, for Mrs.
Clinton as well as for the rest of us. More than 50 years after its birth, email exerts an uncanny hold on all of our internal affairs. But everything must meet its maker, and for email, that time is nigh.

Excluding neutral reports, 91% of the email-related news reports were negative in tone.
Then, there were the references to her character and personal life, which accounted for 4% of the coverage; that was 92% negative.
