Greenwald: Hillary is to Blame for Losing 2016 Election, Not James Comey #LatestNews


Help us get this information out there, share this article around, make people aware of what is really going on.

– Last week, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed that FBI Director James Comey and alleged Russian hacking cost her the U.S. election, saying, “I was on the way to winning, until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. If the election had been on October 27th, I’d be your president.” But does that claim reflect what actually happened in the 2016 election? For more, we speak with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of The Intercept.

44 Thoughts to “Greenwald: Hillary is to Blame for Losing 2016 Election, Not James Comey #LatestNews”

  1. Reality Winner sent the Intercept some evidence and they fumbled and bumbled the sensitive info. Whoops!

  2. Considering Glenny was part of the disinformation circuit, why should I take his opinions seriously?

  3. She's a freaking troll !!
    She acted the exact same way after losing to Obama over 8 years ago.
    She trolled her way into a job a Secretary of State…
    She's trolling now.

    Don't feed the troll

  4. It couldn't have been what was leaked:( Hillary is using Russia as a false flag to mask her corruption within her leaked emails.

  5. Glenn Greenwald reminds me of what Democracy Now used to be like. It's just another PBS now. Alt-mainstream for hip conformists.

  6. The democratic party is unfixable.

  7. HILLARY WON THE PEOPLES VOTES THE ELECTORAL VOTES PUT TRUMP IN POWER , COMEY AND TRUMPS COLUSION WITH THE RUSSIANS SURE DIDNT HELP. THE REPUBLICANS ARE IN POWER AND WE ALL CAN SEE HOW GREAT AND FAIR THAT IS WORKING OUT. VOTE DEMOCRAT IN 2018 TAKE BACK AMERICA .THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY.

  8. "If the election were held on October 27th I would be your president" If only the truth could have been suppressed a couple more weeks I would be president.

  9. Bernie Sanders would have won and will win in 2020.

  10. Democrats wanted Comey fired…. until Trump did it. Democrats will ALWAYS oppose what Trump does.

  11. Nothing exposed in Wikileaks was fabricated. She should be embarrassed, not indignant.

    She's always been arrogant, though.

  12. It feels like 100 years ago, get over it, everything is about Russia now.

  13. Yes, of course, but who's to blame for her not going to jail? Goodness!

  14. Too bad Bernie won't tell it like it is on interviews about Hillary's lies, DNC rigging, Primary election fraud (there is evidence!), caused him being the nominee and possibly being our president now!

  15. Shut up assholes what she said has some truth we'll never know she may actually be right but the whole democrat patty like Glenn points out had really failed so she may be wrong. She's to blame period but what she said may actually be true so go fuck yourself it may be true it may not. But it's as close to 50 / 50 as one could say. Very close but go fuck yourself either way. She is responsible period

  16. No, the Comey letter was a factor as were many other things. It was however the death nail. Without it happening especially 11 days before the election. She would likely be president right now. It undoubtedly lead to people changing their votes or not voting at all as a result. Even Trump was smart enough to realizes that.

  17. Hillary, if you weren't such a corrupt, corporatist, sellout, then you wouldn't have to worry about Wikileaks. It's pretty easy, just ask Bernie.

  18. She was and has always been a thieving lying narcissist, a fake evil snake.

  19. I do believe wholeheartedly that, if not for the Comey fiasco & wikileaks, Hillary would've won the election. However, if Clinton had been a good candidate, no amount of FBI interference or email scandals, etc. could've brought us to the point of having an utter buffoon like Trump in the White House. If Clinton didn't have her own issues, she would've won. It's in her lap whether she accepts that yet or not. To that point, I hope she does a little more processing & introspection, & I hope she & Bill get therapy, as I am positive Bill has sexual predation issues, & Hillary enables him (among many other issues that make them unsuitable to be back in the White House). We need an HONEST, grassroots POTUS who is NOT bought/owned by corporate America. The time WILL come. Blessings to all. P.S. I voted for Clinton, to keep Trump, who I consider more dangerous, out of the White House. However, at this point, I'm happy to see the groundswell of activism having Trump as POTUS has created. Perhaps there's a divine course of events, bringing us to a better country/world, albeit in a VERY roundabout & painfully scary manner. ???

  20. Pence is happily ready for Trump's resignation. Comey who knew Trump would do this is ready also.

  21. Even A.I. detests Hillary!
    (it read the emails)

  22. Obama was a "successful' President…? For the global 1% …..

  23. Hillary, shameless is the only word that comes to mind for you.

  24. Screw Trump, screw Hillary Clinton, and I have to laugh at everyone now protesting the removal of the head of the FBI, as if they were really nice guys under Comey. Screw Comey. This is a non-issue. The whole fight between the Trump and Clinton crowd is like cancer growing on itself.

  25. agree with greenwald but there was voter suppression and the reason hillary didn't mention that is because the dnc did that too during the primary

  26. Best wish and success to Greenwald and family with much love and adoration from my family~ <3

  27. To me, one thing that should be coming out of all of this talk about foreign governments interfering in other countries elections (though I don't believe that Russia had anything to do with the US election except that they wanted Trump to be elected over Clinton) is the US' own record of coups, training dictators at the SOA, using NGO's such as USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy to interfere in other countries etc. That should be talked about as well.

  28. Gawd, what a fucking whiner. Time to STFU Hillary. You lost. Demexit.

  29. Yeah and within a second our dear Amy Goodman gives the discussion a nice spin:
    "Uh, did Glenn Greenwald attack Hillary Clinton? Oh, then let's talk about Comey and Trump's alleged Russia ties!"

    Democracy Now! sucks up to the Democratic Party – sad but true.

  30. Hillary and Bill are a perfect example of why distrust both Democratic and Republican parties. If there was ever a time when we need a third party, it is now!

  31. not according to Hillary…..
    blaming Russia is laughable, it just shows how brainwashed society is.

  32. I really wish Hillary would fucking kill herself.

  33. Correct me if I am wrong, but she did win the popular vote by over 3 million, did she not?

  34. Amy Goodman your bias is showing through. Never thought I would ever say that, but there you go. Glen Greenwald still the most honest, intelligent and unbiased voice in journalism.

  35. Greenwald is a political hack.

  36. The Guardian Newspaper reported just two weeks ago European Intelligence Agencies have concrete proof of collusion and passed it on to FBI and Comey and they were slow to act and asleep! Plus, Clapper said he hadn't seen the FBI Investigation into vote tampering and Yates refused to answer. Gosh, Democracy Now is so not up on the latest news with these bogus interviews with experts who need to get informed. Amazing with all that has been proven already… Read Washington Post, New York Times, and The Guardian… The best and leading reporters on collusion…

  38. Mark Crispin Miller and Jonathan Simon have research that shows why with more Democrats, Republicans keep winning everything. They cheat!
