Trump reacts to Clinton election comments in late-night tirade

President Donald Trump hit back at Hillary Clinton in a series of late-night tweets on Tuesday, after the former Democratic presidential campaigner blamed her 2016 poll loss on Russian interference and a letter released after FBI Director James Comey.

Appearing at the Women for Women International Conference in New York that evening Clinton explained that while she ranged a far from excellent safarus, responsibility for her loss laid in massive place elsewhere.

If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your director, Clinton remarked. I was on the way to acquiring until a mix of Jim Comeys letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks promoted disbelieves in the minds of people who were inclined be voting in favour of me but got scared off. And the evidence presented for that intervening affair is, I reflect, making, persuasive.

Comeys letter to members of Congress said that the Bureau had happened upon a batch of Clintons emails, during an unrelated investigation into disgraced politician Anthony Weiner, that may be relevant to the disconnected and closed investigation into the private email system Clinton used during her hour as secretary of state.

It was released less than 2 week ahead of poll daytime and triggered broad speculation that the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clintons private email server. The improper rating was first publicly tweeted by Rep. Jason Chaffetz( R-Utah ), a House Republican still probing Clintons role in the Benghazi attack.
