A former White House official expressed doubt in Hillary Clinton’s claim that she would have won the presidency if it had been held on October 27, a day before FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress that he is reopening the investigation into her private email server, the Gateway Pundit reports.
“We don’t really know that,” according to Jen Psaki, who served as White House communications director under Barack Obama, during a CNN interview.
“Was sexism a factor? Yes. Was Comey a factor, was Russia a factor? Absolutely,” Psaki added.
But former Obama spokesperson insisted that after watching many focus groups and looking at many polls over the years, voters’ perception of her was “baked into the cake for about 10 years.”
Psaki, who is now a CNN contributor, earlier said that the Democratic party needs to accept that Clinton’s loss was due to “other failings” besides Comey and Russia.
She also sounded an alarm for the party as focus group results from Obama/Trump voters show that they view Democrats as “fighting for rich people, fighting for the one percent.”
