Who were they coordinating with, or colluding with?""We're getting more information about all of the contacts between Trump campaign officials and Trump associates with Russians before, during and after the election.""Yes, I'm leaning Trump. I think it's pretty hard not to. I think the marriage of the domestic fake news operation... combined with the very effective capabilities that the Russians brought..." indicate collusion.On why she lost"I take responsibility for every decision I make. But that's not why I lost.""Comey was more than happy to talk about my emails, but he wouldn't talk about the Russians.""At some point it bleeds over into misogyny.""I also think I was the victim of a very broad assumption I was going to win."Media coverage of her emails: "They covered it like it was Pearl Harbor."On Trump"When you turn on your allies and treat them with such disdain.... you are sending a message that you don't care about history or even about the current problems that we face."He may leave the Paris deal "not even understanding one bit about what that means.""The behavior we are now seeing was always present but it was sort of subordinated to real estate interests"On why she spoke at Goldman Sachs
