She then went on to name and analyze a list of people and factors that led to her defeat last November, from ex-FBI Director James Comey to Vladimir Putin.
Clinton's latest comments continue a post-election emergence in which the former Democratic nominee continues to point fingers for her loss, though other accounts of the Clinton campaign have put more fault in her corner.
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. "I mean it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong".
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". "They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages", she alleged.
Speaking at a technology conference near Los Angeles, Clinton on Wednesday mentioned Facebook by name and said that fake stories spread on the social network influenced the information that people relied on.
Another Therriault tweet captured by the Tax Foundation's Alan Cole and another Twitter user pointed to the Clinton campaign ignoring DNC warnings about Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It's a strategy she's embraced since the election loss.
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.
To pull it off, Russians would have needed to be "guided by Americans", she added later.
The word even made it into Urban Dictionary with the definition: "When you want to say "coverage" but your hands are too small to hit all the letters on your keyboard".
But take away everything else and you are left with this: Hillary Clinton was the candidate.
However, at the same time, Clinton also feels she was "the victim of the very broad assumption" that she was going to win.
"They had to be ready for that, and they had to have a plan for that and they had to be given the go-ahead; 'OK, this could be the end of the Trump campaign".
