Former First lady of the United States, who lost the last presidential election to Donald Trump, has recently released a book titled “What Happened?”
In her new book, she made a long list of people whom she held responsible for her election loss including former president, Barack Obama.
According to a BBC report, Mrs Clinton writes in her book, “I do wonder sometimes about what would have happened if President Obama had made a televised address to the nation in the fall of 2016 warning that our democracy was under attack. Maybe more Americans would have woken up to the threat in time. “
According to media reports, part of the reason why the nation didn’t know about the evidence implicating Russia in election meddling until after the election is because President Barack Obama wouldn’t go public unless he had the support of Republicans in Congress.
Without that support, the president kept quiet – concerned that any action he took would be viewed as being done for partisan benefit.
Mrs Clinton has plenty of words for Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as well, who she said shamefully put partisanship ahead of national security.
“McConnell knew better,” she writes, “but he did it anyway.”
Mrs Clinton, however, did not spare herself blame for what happened last year as she writes, “You can blame the data, blame the message, blame anything you want – but I was the candidate. It was my campaign. Those were my decisions.”
