Keith Ellison evades questions on DNC finances, Hillary Clinton's accusations

A panel on CNN's "Inside Politics" Thursday poked fun at former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's series of excuses for her November election loss.

"I also think I was the victim of the very broad assumption that I was going to win", she said.

"Some people were sucked in".

Clinton's tweet piled on the wave of memes that flooded the Internet following Trump's errant posting as online commenters tried to make sense of the cryptic message.

She has also blamed the FBI, Russia and media.

An ever-expanding set of investigations by Congress and the Justice Department's special counsel will reveal whether any connections between the Russian government and members of the Trump campaign may have tilted the race against Clinton.

'The kind of things that were in WikiLeaks - you laugh, but people were obsessing over this stuff.

In her comments Wednesday, Clinton described the travails she endured as a candidate. Therriault said the DNC data never had those states as "even close to safe", but the Clinton team "thought they knew better". "I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party", Clinton said, according to a transcript.

When asked what she meant by nothing, she elaborated, "it was bankrupt ... its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong".

While the Clinton campaign heavily contested Pennsylvania, the former Secretary of State rarely visited MI and Wisconsin during the late stages of the 2016 election.

Hillary Clinton says Russian hackers were "guided by Americans" in their assault on her presidential campaign.

The President, who tweeted "Despite the constant negative press covfefe" on Tuesday Midnight later deleted the post after it garnered more than 23,000 re-tweets and more than 67,000 likes within two hours.

Mrs Clinton talked at length about Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential contest, referring to USA intelligence assessments that Russia not only meddled in the election, but did so to help Mr Trump defeat her. "They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages", she alleged. We expect to be able to vote by tweet by the 2018 midterms. "I got paid for the speeches I made", she said.

As part of their freedom of information lawsuit to obtain Hillary Clinton's emails, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is revealing Clinton went to great lengths to keep herself separated from the Obamas.
