Clinton Comms Director Palmieri: Comey Letter 'Devastating'

One of the enduring hallmarks of any losing political campaign is that those who ran the race blame everyone but themselves. It’s like a multi-million dollar “The dog at my homework!” play. Here, Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri takes a break from blaming the Russians for Hillary Clinton’s loss and gets back to one of the original excuses (about 500 excuses ago, for those counting): FBI Director Comey’s second letter. The one which resulted in Hillary not getting in trouble for a second time even though she should have. That letter is so powerful that it retroactively kept them from vigorously campaigning in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the months prior to it.
