Hillary Clinton’s donors, of which there were many, probably thought they had the proverbial cat in the bag and were soon to be repaid dividends for their investment in perhaps the most corrupt Democrat nominee of all-time, Hillary Clinton.
That is until stunning results started coming in on election night and Donald Trump started ticking off state after state where polls showed him lacking, states like Pennsylvania and Michigan that hadn’t voted for a Republican president since the 1980’s.
In a conference call on Saturday, Hillary Clinton addressed those mega-donors, and according to a report from CNN cast blame on her devastating loss at the feet of FBI director James Comey, who she said gave the campaign a “double whammy” with Comey’s two letters to Congress updating them on the status of her investigations.
There are several reasons why Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump on election night. But all of the blame should go to Clinton, who went to the trouble and cost of setting up her illegal email server scheme in order to hide her pay-to-play operation at the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton may never be punished for her corruption from a legal standpoint, but she was punished by voters on Saturday and for that only she and those who voted to nominate her are to blame. The question is, what kind of favors will Hillary Clinton be able to provide to her donors now that she will not be in a position of power?
