Breitbart -- Hillary Clinton’s ex-campaign chief John Podesta is complaining again about the fact that his failed campaign still won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election.
In a podcast interview with Politico’s Susan Glasser, Podesta spoke about the “burden” he felt by losing the election, digging up old talking points about Trump having the nuclear codes.
“We bear responsibility and it’s a great burden and I feel it every day,” Podesta said when asked about the campaign. “I mean, we lost this election; we won the popular vote by 3 million votes, but we lost the Electoral College and lost the election to Donald Trump.”
He also complained about the letter to Congress from James Comey, clarifying that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private emails was still open and again pointed to Vladimir Putin having a “grudge” against Clinton.
He tried to soften the blow of losing, pointing out that the campaign could have done more in Wisconsin, but that Pennsylvania was already lost.
“But you know, at the end of the day, we lost Pennsylvania anyway, and we had thrown everything we could at Pennsylvania,” he admitted.
Blog Author's Comments: Podesta and Hillary both would have been charged for their crimes and prosecuted to the maximum if they were Republicans. They both still need to be investigated to the maximum. Ex FBI Director Comey already clearly laid out the charges Clinton is guilty of, but he let it slide, perhaps knowing that AG Loretta Lynch would do nothing with whatever evidence was presented. But all we hear from Podesta, Hillary and the Democrats are more excuses for why they lost.
This is why the Russian debacle took place. It was an attempt at distraction, just like a video was with Benghazi. Podesta knew what the real game was (getting 270 or more electoral votes). Hillary didn't get the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, so she loses. Podesta is demonstrating that not only is he a whiner and wimp, but an incompetent one as well. He is desperate to rile up the left using emotions and fundamentally false logic. The Left has no convincing argument today, not one. They do this to keep their lunatic base engaged and angry.
