Despite attempts by Democratic leaders to admit their own faults, in the forthcoming Hillary Clinton book she will blame it all on Putin and Comey.
There is a new Hillary Clinton book coming out that will continue her message that everyone is to blame but herself. It’s all the fault of Russia and James Comey, not her own overwhelmingly obvious corruption. This means her book will have to contradict a recent statement by Chuck Schumer that attempted to get beyond this arrogance and win over Trump voters. It sounds like the book will help Republicans!
The Hill reports, “Clinton book to double down on Russia, Comey message.”
Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book will double down on Russia’s interference and James Comey’s involvement in her stunning election defeat, according to sources familiar with the memoir.
Privately, Clinton has told friends and longtime associates that she “wants the whole story out there” as she rushes to tweak and put the finishing touches on the book due out in September.
“She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no uncertain terms,” one longtime ally said. “She wants the whole story out there from her own perspective. I think a lot of people are going to be really surprised by how much she reveals.”
The ally said the book of personal essays will be a “bombshell.”
The memoir’s focus on how Russia and Comey, the former FBI director fired earlier this year by President Trump, cost Clinton the White House would run counter to recent messaging from Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other Democrats about the party’s disappointing 2016 results.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer told The Washington Post earlier this week. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
