Hillary Clinton claimed that the two letters from James Comey , the head of Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI)  to members of Congress in the run-up to the presidential election, led to her loss in the last week.

Hillary made the statement on Saturday during a conference which consisted of donors who had contributed $1,00,000 or more towards her election campaign.

She said she was confident on winning the election until the FBI chief’s letters turned the direction of the campaign.

Meanwhile, few opinion polls had suggested that neither the FBI letters nor the taped conversations featuring Mr Trump bantering about his controversial behaviour with women made much impact on the voters’ preferences which were decided much earlier in large part.
