Hillary Clinton Cites FBI, Russia, WikiLeaks In Election Loss

Hillary Clinton’s return to the national stage yesterday with a high-profile interview — declaring she is “now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance” — was welcomed by Democratic strategists eyeing ways to energize voters in the upcoming midterms and 2020 elections.

Meanwhile, a new report this week by Democratic political firm Global Strategy Group pins Clinton’s loss on her inability to turn out the base that voted for former President Barack Obama twice. Because of Clinton, the report concluded, many of those voters either stayed home, or backed Trump.
