Hillary Clinton continued to blame former FBI Director James Comey for her stunning 2016 presidential defeat to Donald Trump, telling an Australian reporter the bureau chief “shivved” her just before election day.
The doomed nominee was speaking with Australia’s NewsCo.com when she lashed-out at Comey over his public statements regarding Hillary’s email investigation just weeks before voters went to the ballot box.
“He did shiv me, yeah… we also know that opponents of mine, like former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, knew something was coming,” she said. “So, there was clearly an effort to derail my campaign at the end.”
Hillary’s bizarre statement refers to a “shiv” or homemade prison knife, usually made from common items but turned into a deadly weapon.
Clinton continues to tour the world promoting her new memoir, “What Happened,” which blames her dramatic 2016 defeat on a host of external factors, including James Comey, the FBI, the DNC, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, the New York Times, Russian election interference, Facebook, and others.
The former Secretary of State was injured this week while promoting her book in the United Kingdom, falling down a flight of stairs and injuring her foot. Speaking with the BBC’s Graham Norton, Clinton explained her injury saying she was “running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.”
