FBI letters were double whammy to Presidential campaign: Hillary Clinton

FBI letters were double whammy to Presidential campaign: Hillary Clinton

Washington D.C., [U.S.], Nov. 13 : Speaking out on her stunning loss to Donald Trump in the race to the White House, Hillary Clinton asserted that FBI Director James Comey had delivered a double whammy to her candidacy in the final days of the campaign by taking another look at emails related to Clinton's private server before abruptly saying he found no wrongdoing.

A member of her national finance committee who was on the call told CNN that Clinton placed at least some of the blame on Comey for her stunning defeat to Donald Trump.

She said the first letter from Comey, sent to Congress on October 28, stopped the momentum she had built after three debates and the release of Trump's "Access Hollywood" tape.

New York [United States], Nov.7 : The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey informed lawmakers that the agency has not changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails.

Obama suggests voters holding Clinton to a double standard

Washington, Nov 2 : President Barack Obama has suggested that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton faces a double standard as the first female presidential nominee of a major party against an outlandish opponent whose rhetoric and behaviour were being normalised.

"I saw her as my Secretary of State. I saw her in the Situation Room making arguments to go after (Osama) bin Laden even though it was risky, tirelessly circling the globe as Secretary of State, respected around the world," Obama said on Tuesday during a rally in Columbus, Ohio.

"Her efforts are not always flashy and they're not always appreciated here at home, but she made me a better president and she didn't ask for credit."
