Hillary Clinton: Putin’s alleged involvement in the hacking of Democratic organizations stems from longtime grudge.
Hillary Clinton has an explanation for Vladimir Putin’s alleged involvement in the hacking of Democratic organizations during the 2016 presidential election: The Russian leader has a longtime grudge against her, dating back to 2011 when she made comments that were critical of Russia’s parliamentary elections.
Two Clinton donors tell ABC News that Clinton made the claim Thursday night at Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel during an event dubbed a “thank you” party, at which she expressed her gratitude to donors. Her former running mate Tim Kaine was in attendance, as was New York governor Andrew Cuomo.
The donors also say there is growing anger in the Clinton camp toward the FBI, saying they played a monumental role in allegedly handing the election to Donald Trump, in regards to FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Clinton’s email scandal.
Also on Thursday, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post with the headline “Something is deeply broken at the FBI,” calling the department out for what he said was a “lackadaisical response to the very real Russian plot to subvert a national election.”
Donors are NOT happy with Clinton, see
The wealthy Democrats who helped pump over $1 billion into Hillary Clinton’s losing effort want answers.
It would appear the motivation for Obama bringing all this up now is lack of donations to the DNC right now and an attempt to deflect the fact that the Hillary campaign blew it.
