While speaking at the Women for Women International event on Tuesday, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said if the election had been held on Oct. 27, she would be president.
The Hill reports Clinton said, “I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off.”
She continued, “And the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive. And so we overcame a lot. We overcame an enormous barrage of negativity, of false equivalency, and so much else.”
“But, as Nate Silver—who, you know, doesn’t work for me, he’s an independent analyst, but one considered to be very reliable—you know, has concluded, you know, that if the election been on October 27th, I’d be your president.” Clinton continued.
Clinton’s husband, previous president Bill Clinton, has also blamed Comey and WikiLeaks for Clinton’s loss.
