After her failure to create history as the first female US president, Hillary Clinton is searching for reasons behind her close defeat. The first reason on her list is the letter sent by FBI director James Comey to the Congress saying email probe against Hillary was being reopened. The Clinton camp believes this news drove away key college educated white voters from her side.
Hillary said in a statement, “There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful. Our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.” Up until that point, Hillary was ahead of Trump but the news bolstered Trump campaign and he started to make great strides with only a few days left before the election. Although James Comey later sent cleared Clinton of any wrongdoing, that did not help Hillary’s cause.
