She also pointed a finger at the media, "weaponized information", and "1,000 Russian agents" who reportedly helped spread fake news such as 'Pizzagate'.
Rep. Keith Ellison evaded questions Friday about the bankruptcy of the Democratic National Committee in 2016.
The reaction was swift.
"I think she has a right to analyse what happened, but we do have to move on". "It would be more productive to sit down with Tom Perez and folks at the DNC and focus on rebuilding our party from the inside out to be better prepared for midterm elections in 2018".
The Democratic nominee in last year's bitterly fought White House race addressed a technology conference in California, speaking at length about what she termed a Moscow-led campaign of "disinformation" against her that influenced the vote.
Clinton has said that if the election had been on October 27 - the day before Comey sent a letter to members of Congress about her use of an email server - she would have won.
However, at the same time, Clinton also feels she was "the victim of the very broad assumption" that she was going to win.
Ms. Clinton also suggested that the President was coordinating with Russian Federation during the election campaign.
Clinton says of her loss that "I'm fine as a person but I'm anxious as an American".
Clinton sought to mirror the practices of former US President Barack Obama's two successful campaigns, which relied on precise targeting and outreach in swing states like OH, "like Obama 3.0, you know".
She said the DNC was "bankrupt" and "on the verge of insolvency" and that its data was "mediocre" and "wrong". "I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party", she said.
A top former DNC aide tweeted overnight that Clinton's allegations were "f---ing bulls---" and even suggested that the Clinton campaign ignored its warnings about how competitive Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were.
Clinton went on to dismiss her email scandal as: "the biggest nothing-burger ever".
He went on to acknowledge that his tweets had "got way more attention than I'd expected..."
Sure, in her Recode interview, Clinton made passing reference - as she has done in her other post-election appearances - to the idea that she made mistakes.
