Hillary Clinton has blamed James Comey for losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
According to The New York Times, she has mixed emotions about Trump’s recent firing of the FBI Director.
Democrats had blamed Comey for Clinton losing the election when he announced that the FBI might reopen its investigation into her use of a private email server while she was serving as Secretary of State.
Top officials from her campaign said there was no joy in Hillaryland at Mr. Trump’s startling decision. They worry that the president will nominate a more pliable figure than Mr. Comey to run the F.B.I.; that Mr. Trump will be able to muscle that person through a Republican-controlled Senate, which needs only 51 votes to confirm the nominee; and that the new F.B.I. director may not pursue the evidence in the Russian investigation as aggressively as Mr. Comey did.

No everyone agrees with Clinton’s belief that Comey cost her the election. Many think it was her record as a candidate that caused the public to vote against her.Even Democrats think that Clinton was a poor candidate who ran a poorly designed campaign.
