Clinton campaign believes that Comey letters cost them the election.

Courtesy of Business Insider:

The Hillary Clinton campaign pinned blame on FBI Director James Comey for its stunning election night loss to Donald Trump. 

Navin Nayak, the director of opinion research on the campaign, sent an email to senior staff Thursday evening outlining what the campaign believed were the reasons for its loss. The email, which was first reported by Politico, was confirmed to Business Insider by a Clinton campaign staffer. 

Nayak signaled in the email that the campaign believes two bombshells from Comey in the final days of the election helped swing the electorate toward Trump — an initial Comey letter to Congress that reactivated an investigation into Clinton's private email server, and a subsequent letter last Sunday that again cleared her of wrongdoing. 

"We believe that we lost this election in the last week. Comey's letter in the last 11 days of the election both helped depress our turnout and also drove away some of our critical support among college-educated white voters — particularly in the suburbs," Nayak wrote. "We also think Comey's 2nd letter, which was intended to absolve Sec. Clinton, actually helped to bolster Trump's turnout."

While I also think that the impact of the Comey letter was devastating for Hillary Clinton, that first letter changed poll numbers almost overnight, I also think there were other factors at play.

Such as the third party candidates:

In Michigan, where the election was so close that the Associated Press still hasn’t called the result, Trump is ahead by about 12,000 votes. That’s significantly less than the 242,867 votes that went to third-party candidates in Michigan. It’s a similar story elsewhere: third-party candidates won more total votes than the Trump’s margin of victory in Wisconsin, Arizona, North Carolina and Florida. Without those states, Trump would not have won the presidency.

Some pundits are dismissing the impact of third party voters on the outcome of this election, but I think it is pretty clear they had a significant impact. And I think fewer protest votes might very well have carried the day for Clinton.

However as bad as the FBI intrusion and the third party votes were, I also think we need to remember that the Russian hackers and Wikileaks definitely had an impact as well.

We have now seen more of Hillary Clinton's e-mails than any other presidential candidate in history, and I would argue that if we had been given a similar peek into Donald Trump's e-mails he would not only NOT be the president-elect but he would probably be serving time. 

I keep hearing idiots saying that Hillary Clinton lost this election, but if that were true it would not have required the combined forces of the Republican party, conservative media, Wikileaks, Russia, and the FBI to bring her down. 

So did James Comey cost Hillary Clinton the election?

Well if he did he certainly had a lot of help in doing so.

    O/T HOPEFULLY THEY CAN FIND THESE PEOPLE AND ARREST THEM

    White House staffer's email is hacked revealing Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton's private schedules, Secret Service plans, and even Michelle Obama's PASSPORT

    The email of a White House staff member has been hacked by DC Leaks, revealing what the group claims is Michelle Obama's passport.

    In addition to the staffer's correspondence with other White House workers, the emails also reveal detailed schedules for members of the Secret Service, the First Lady and Vice President Joe Biden.

    The young staffer also appears to be heavily involved in organizing events for Hillary Clinton.

    White House press secretary said of the situation on Thursday: 'We take any reports about a cyber breach seriously, particularly if it contains some sensitive information.

    'Certainly, this is something we are taking a close look at.'

    The system is rigged. And the electoral college stuff is archaic. No other democracy in the world has such a thing. In US you call it the "popular vote", everywhere else they call it the VOTE. But this year there were particular problems that lend great support to the rigging of the election - Russian hacking, WikiLeaks cooperation with Russia, Trump campaign's involvement with Russia and James Comey -- probably a Russian mole along with a number of others in the FBI. What a mess and you can hardly count on the FBI to properly investigate the Russian involvement in the 2016 election can you. Trump is there for a reason and he might not exactly know it because he's not exactly that interested but Europe will no doubt feel the full effect.

      Exactly what I have been thinking -- Comey, Russia being involved with Trump campaign the whole time, etc. WHY IS NO ONE BRINGING THEM ALL UP ON CHARGES OF ELECTION TAMPERING???

      Comey should be fired. Anyone in the campaign who had any contact with any Russian should be charged with treason.

      The results should be voided and Hillary should be made President.

      That is all there is to it. Not only is Trump disgusting and deplorable, but he should not be allowed to be president and be puppet to these people who saw to it he got the election.

      This must be illegal and he cannot be our president. It just can't happen.

    The other thing is, I believe a lot of people who despise Trump and were leaning Clinton, got bombarded by the Comey crap at the end, never even heard about his sort of retraction, and went in the booth and said, "the hell with both parties" and voted Johnson, whose intelligence is about on par with Trump.

    Sarah Palin as Interior Secretary? Here’s what Trump’s cabinet could do to national parks

    In Trump’s America, Sarah Palin might be the next secretary of the Interior Department. According to an anonymous Politico source, the former Alaska governor and onetime vice-presidential hopeful is being considered for the job, and Trump has already said she will certainly hold a place in his cabinet. Other people reportedly on Trump’s short list for the Interior Secretary position include oil barons and Trump’s own son, Donald Trump Jr., who The Washington Post says could conceivably squeak past nepotism laws by declining to be paid a salary.

    In any of these cases, things are about to change drastically for the scientists and officials that study, manage, and preserve America’s National Parks and public lands. The Secretary of the Interior is in charge of overseeing the National Park Service, as well as overseeing all federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, and presiding over the U.S. Geological Survey, a massive scientific research agency which studies America’s natural resources and anything that threatens them—you know, like climate change, which Trump says he believes is a hoax perpetrated by “the Chinese.”

    “Oh my god,” Dwight Pitcaithley, the former chief historian to the National Park Service, said upon hearing that Palin might be up for the Interior Secretary job. Pitcaithley, now a professor at New Mexico State University, spent 30 years with the Park Service before retiring in 2005.

    ....But what will an Interior Department under Palin, or any of Trump’s other picks look like? On his campaign website, Trump promises to “streamline the permitting process for all energy projects,” which will likely mean cutting back environmental review, and “encourage the production of [fossil fuel] resources by opening onshore and offshore leasing on federal lands and waters.” Almost immediately, Pitcaithley expects it to become “open season” for oil and gas drilling on public lands. For example, in Alaska, Palin’s home state, the massive Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has been contested for years by people eager to explore it for oil. So far, the drillers have been staved off. “I think that’s up for grabs now,” Pitcaithley says. Indeed, the morning after election day, the Alaska Dispatch News wrote that with both the House and Senate now Republican and Trump in the White House, “pro-development Alaskans could already taste oil.”

    I totally agree with your assessment Gryphen but in the end I think this was a massive wake up call we all needed. Trump did not win, the majority of this fine country still believes in fairness and equality and kindness, I really believe that after suffering thru the last few days.

    The real problem in this country is they are lazy and stupid...sorry but its true. I have read over and over when his supporters were interviewed....they just didn't understand Clinton and Trump never talks over a 6th grade level, always repeating the dog whistles. If anyone is really to blame it is the national media that just allowed tons of free time and just repeated how both candidates were hated. Seriously...like Bill said, take every horrible, disgusting thing about Trump and compare that to a private e mail server, are you kidding??? The people in Michigan had every right to leave that pick blank...no one had the right to be bitter more than them, but the other swing states? Talk about whiny babies....older uneducated white men. Boo hoo the world is just changing too damn fast...I want the same job my grandfather had and women should be in the kitchen. What a crock of shit. Who votes in the same lying do nothings over and over...what states??? They love the GOP liars and refuse to understand they have been lied to for 30 years by the same people making themselves rich. I don't feel sorry for them at all except they just ruined it for the rest of us. Like Kentucky with McConnell and Wisconsin with Ryan...they refuse to recognize where the gridlock came from. Obama had a list a mile long that would have improved the very lives of those stupid men that voted for Trump. Where did their factories go???? Ask Mitt Romney and his buddies...all Republicans.

    The protests are already getting to that man-child, his life and his family's life is all down hill from here. Just look at the view he now has from his golden jail, his wife...his young son. Gone are the perks I am sure he got dining out in NYC...you can't tell me every waiter, taxi driver and his employees aren't laughing at him now. Have you seen the barricades in front of the tower??? I can imagine the other residents are gonna start to flee as no one will want to visit or go anywhere near all that bullshit.

    Where in the hell is Anonymous? They saved the 2012 election by plugging the tunnel in Ohio...why can't they get Trump's tax returns? I think there would be enough in there to start impeachment or some kind of legal case before Jan. I am sure his voters wouldn't care but the rest of us sure need to know. If the media had refused to air any of his events until his tax returns showed up...I wonder what he would have done. There are no American banks trusting Trump so you know where his loans are.

And his workload will be YUGE - he threw away his freedom and his life easing into retirement away. No more bopping off to Mar-a-Largo or his golf courses or out for dinner or whatever without a contingent and a lot of preplanning. And the job of President is 24/7/365 no matter what he thinks about a 4 day work week, aligning his schedule to Congress.

    Do they know what each job entails? Do they know who fits those job requirements? Do they even know who is even out there that can fill those jobs?

    Ivanka, Donald Jr and Erik you are not looking to fill jobs for the mailroom or stockroom.

    America these are very important jobs.

    Why did Donald Trump put his politically enept kids on the Transition Team?

    Some of the names being considered works for him.

    Reminds me of Governor Sarah Palin selecting her incompetent high school best friends forever to fill those jobs.

      If those don't motivate a person, especially a woman to vote I don't know what will.

      I totally do. No. Get. It.

      Thank you 9:10. A voice of reason.

      All this name calling, the most disgusting is the "republicans are all racists", are they including all those republicans who switched parties and voted the first African American into office not once but twice?

      What a joke. Hillary was uninspiring, untrustworthy, and an old school insider. She could not seal the deal, and Obama's hope and change never materialized. Period.

    WILL DONALD TRUMP RIDE A WHITE HORSE IN THE PARADE?


    KKK of North Carolina Announces Donald Trump Victory Parade

    The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan announced on their web site that they will hold a victory "klavalkade Klan parade" on 3 December 2016 honoring the electoral victory of Donald Trump.

    The announcement was made on the group's home page and tops a screed about its members' wanting to live apart from "the darker races":

    Our goal is to help restore America to a White Christian nation, founded on God's word. This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races ... we simply want to live separate from them ... As GOD intended. (Lev.20:24-25) It is a simple fact that whenever these races try to integrate themselves into White society, that society is damaged immensely ... perhaps even destroyed altogether. Everything that we do as Klan members is in furtherance of our ultimate goal. We are not evil; hateful people as our enemies would have you believe. We are common white people from all walks of life who have recognized the problems that our race is facing. We have chose to stand and fight for those things that we hold dear to our people. Won't you stand with us, while there is still time! It is the duty of all white Christian men and women to fight against the Communist who have stolen our Nation...

    Most of our youth are on DRUGS or pregnant with a mongrel child. If our forefathers could see America today they would have our Government Leaders put to DEATH. For Treason against the American people. They are rolling in their graves as you read this now. We as a people can change this course in which America has taken. We need to come together as WHITE CHRISTIAN AMERICANS and spread the word to others. Grab the blind Liberals by their heads and shake them until they wake up. From their JEW TUBE naps and tell them to look around because the ship is sinking. And through the Ku Klux Klan we will wake America up to the evils which are in our Government. We will unite proud white Americans to our cause because we have the LORD on our side. And with CHRIST we can't lose.

    A spokeswoman for the group, who provided us with the name Amanda, said the parade would be "unannounced." She did not give us any further information, such as the event's time or specific location, other than to say it will take place in North Carolina.

    The KKK representative was responding to our inquiry as to whether the group had held a Trump victory rally on 9 November 2016 on a freeway overpass in the city of Mebane. She confirmed they had not, but she alerted us to the upcoming parade.

    We reached out to the press office for Trump's campaign for comment and have not heard back

    Here's the facts:

    Americans picked a little known bi-racial Senator over Clinton in 2008. This in itself should have been a wake up call to Clinton and her followers that 2016 was going to be a losing proposition. To win, all Trump had to do is rally the idiots who never vote. Don't blame Comey, blame Hillary Clinton and her quest to be POTUS.

    I was very disappointed Hillary Clinton lost the election. She would have been an outstanding POTUS and was more than well qualified for the position.

    Instead, we've got this racist jerk who is a divider and has the majority of American showing they are against him in spite of the media now trying so damned hard to make him seem to be a great guy! I call bullshit!

      I agree. I will NEVER watch this orange clown when he is on TV, he is a JOKE. His kids are grifters, too, and see themselves as "royalty" I doubt that they are any more intelligent than their dumbass father. If tRump had lost, there would have been a divorce, look how miserable they are with each other (tRump and his illegal alien wife)They both would like to end this sham of a marriage. I wonder where her parents, the Communists who live in tRump Tower, will live after this? tRump's victory" is devastating to the entire family. All their misdeeds are in the open, plagarism of other peoples wares is out. They are not smart people, and have exposed this to the entire world. I wonder if Ivankas lap dances help Donald at all these days?

      And we're only finding out now how many millions more votes she got than Trump.

      The VRWC has obviously been hard at work since Romney, finding ways to steal this election. And you can bet Comey was coordinated to best effect.

      If they can get into bed with Putin to steal the election it shows you what a danger the GOP is to America.

    8. Trump needed the Russians, Wikileaks, the FBI and the stepped up typical Republian gerrymandering, voter suppression and voter disenfranchisement to win and the STILL lost the popular vote. He only has 47% and that's not going to change. Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote is just going up the more absentee and provisional ballots that are counted.

      Donald Trump is the biggest LOSER that ever won on a technicality.

      He's replaced George W. Bush as the worst president in U.S. history and he hasn't even taken the oath of office yet.

      How many years has Trump been in Political office mlaiuppa? An Clinton, since her college days correct? And yet Trump steam rolled all the republicans hopefulls (was that the Russians and Wikileaks and the FBI too?), and then he steam rolled Hillary, a lifelong seasoned politician.

      I've read enough of your posts. You know damn well Clinton was given this nomination by the DNC 8 years ago, and come hell or high water, she was going to be the nominee regardless of her baggage. And you know that it was Clintons to lose and she lost it, because she was not the best choice, and her time was not now.

      Frankly for someone who has never been in politics, to practically tie the popular vote, and win the electoral college, what does that say about Hillary?

    8,000 anti-Trump marchers flood downtown Los Angeles; many fear immigration policies

    Aboisterous but peaceful crowd that police estimated at about 8,000 people took to the streets of Los Angeles on Saturday to protest the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States.

    It was the largest of several Los Angeles demonstrations in the days since voters elected Trump, a Republican who shocked conventional political wisdom by defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday. Trump’s attacks on people who are in this country illegally and his comments about women, among other things, brought many of the protesters to the streets, they said...

    .... “[Trump] ran a campaign on divisiveness and hatred,” he said. “But now that he has been elected, I hope he can be more of a president and do something to unite the country.”

    Nearby, Jose Marcea stood by his car watching the march. He too had been waiting in traffic for 30 minutes, he said. Behind him, rows of cars and buses were idling.

    “This is OK; I’m OK with all this,” said Marcea, 44. “I think it’s important that people express how they feel. It’s a free country, after all.”

    Marcea, who lives in Van Nuys, said he was bothered by Trump's victory....

    “This is hard to take in. I mean, it bothered me what he said about deporting 11 million illegal immigrants and all the offensive things he has said about everyone, including women.”

    Demonstrations also took place in other cities Saturday including New York, where thousands of marchers headed to Trump Tower, closing off streets and causing gridlock in parts of Manhattan....

    When Comey put the first letter out he said they needed time to review emails. Someone email Snowden and asked how long it should to make a comparison review to determine duplicates or originals.

    Snowdens reply was that with current NSA technology it should not take more than minutes or an hour to review all those in the numbers he mentioned. So yes this looks very suspicious.

  35. The message is very clear.

    For this country to select a seemingly divisive, harsh and petulant man with no political experience and a well reported history of obnoxious and crude behavior over a career politician, former Senator, former Secretary of State with a well documented history of corruption, backdoor deals and missteps in leadership tells ME that the vote was not necessarily for Trump, BUT FOR A CHANGE TO THE STATUS QUO

  36. Let him follow the path of dictators and despots and put all three of his spawn in his cabinet.

    Do it before the electoral college meets so the electors know exactly who they are voting for.

    Let the counting of the absentee and provisional ballots continue too.

    Just a refresher for you who've forgotten your recent history:
    The Democrats controlled the Senate when James Comey was confirmed as FBI director in 2013. One Senator voted against him:
    Rand Paul and Dems laughed at Paul. Two Democratic Senators, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, voted present because they were uncomfortable that Comey wouldn't answer whether he'd spy on Americans without warrants.

      Trump had the same number of voters republicans get every four years. How about a little self awareness that dem voters didn't show up for a horrible candidate ?
      Wikileaks and Russia didn't write the emails.

    Narcissistic Sociopath - Incapable of accepting responsibility of one's own behavior (Scapegoating).
    "Still, Mrs. Clinton’s instinct to shun any personal responsibility angered some Democrats. Several donors on the call, while deeply bitter about Mr. Comey’s actions, said they believed that Mrs. Clinton and her campaign had suffered avoidable missteps that handed the election to an unacceptable opponent. They pointed to the campaign’s lack of a compelling message for white working-class voters and to decisions years ago by Mrs. Clinton to use a private email address at the State Department and to accept millions of dollars for speeches to Wall Street.

    “There is a special place in hell for Clinton staff, allegedly including Cheryl Mills, that okayed the email server setup,” Jim Manley, a Democratic strategist and former senior aide to Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, wrote on Sidewire, a social media site, referring to a longtime aide and lawyer to Mrs. Clinton."
