When it started to become clear on election night that things were looking bleak for Hillary Clinton, her supporters started lashing out at FBI Director James Comey.
Blaming Comey for Hillary's loss is convenient and way too simplistic.

And yet that’s the approach Hillary Clinton took in trying to explain her loss to donors today:

NEW: On the 32 min call with fundraisers of $100k+, Clinton said Comey's 2nd letter did more damage than the 1st https://t.co/QqyhCKeYLC

Hmm, nothing about all the lying, email system that put classified material at risk, or her top aide’s husband Anthony Weiner? Go figure!
Gee…perhaps the reason for the FBI investigation in the first place played a role? https://t.co/HcXlEVbxxt

So Clinton thinks Comey saying he won't indict her was more damaging than that he may. Hmm. "How dare he say I'm not a criminal" https://t.co/8MhuQAuL58

Hillary Clinton can blame Comey's letters all she wants, but the email scandal was her own doing and undoing.https://t.co/6bttt0iQbv

Clinton camp eventually has to realize that they themselves also share some blame https://t.co/A1qvaHDB7J

Amazing. No mention of failure to connect with voters. https://t.co/sUPri1jT9q

I don't think Comey set up the Foundation, Global Initiative or hackable email server, but whatevs. https://t.co/0KLHOpfuBD
