Speaking at a Women for Women event in New York City, Hillary Clinton revealed why she thought she lost the presidential election.

“I was on the way to winning until a 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,” Clinton told CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour. “And the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign.”


Hillary seems to be back in her political stride following the defeat, telling Amanpour, “I’m now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance…I can’t be anything other than who I am. I spent decades learning about what it would take to move our country forward.”
