“I knew there were certain factors at work and after the election, I learned a lot more about the impact that they had and it was the perfect storm,” Clinton said on a video of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” posted Friday.
“There were a lot of currents of resentments and anger about all kinds of things in the country,” Clinton said during the interview. “There was a lot of sexism, misogyny, which now thankfully we are pulling out of the dark and talking about. There was voter suppression, people trying to prevent other Americans from being able to vote.”
“There was the FBI’s intervention on October 28th, after I saw you, which had a devastating effect,” she continued. “Because people thought oh my gosh I can’t vote for somebody who’s once again under FBI investigation, even though, again, there was nothing to it. And then there were the Russians. The Russians. And the Russians were much more involved than even I understood.”
