Comey said the investigation includes the nature of any links between individuals associated with President Donald Trump's campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between Russia's efforts and the Trump campaign.

The problem is: She has learned nothing from losing, and she's on the wrong topic.

At the luncheon, Clinton said, "I'm back to being an activist citizen - and part of the resistance". "Listen to her, another day for the election and she would have won".

Democrats claimed victory over Republicans after passage of the bill, which excluded funding for the southern border wall and avoided $18 billion in domestic spending cuts sought by President Trump.

Comey confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation learned that classified emails were forwarded from Clinton's email account by Clinton aide Huma Abedin to her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner, so he could print them out. "Jim Comey didn't say, 'Don't put any resources in MI until the final week of the campaign.' One of the things that hindered her in the campaign was a sense that she never fully was willing to take responsibility for her mistakes, particularly that server". "It was once middle class, now I would call it lower middle class", she says.

"I don't know why she needs to be coming back", said Bill Maher. "We need a strategy", she proclaimed, but, then, she didn't say what that would entail.

Combine that with her campaign's tactical missteps, and Clinton has no one to blame but herself. "It wasn't a ideal campaign - there's no such thing - but I was on the way to winning until a few things happened". Just as I want my Washington colleagues to force GOP members to explain their health plan for American health care without any reference to Obamacare.

It's worth pointing out that everything in the Comey letter was nearly surely going to leak anyway, not only because of its connection to the Clinton investigation but also because this "fella Anthony Weiner", as Comey referred to him, had access to classified information. The more important lesson is for the women who come after: Tell your story, or someone will tell it for you. "Could you have had a better rationale?"

If you can't beat Trump, join him.

BARRO: By reading the polls.

"Your message and your optics are everything when you are trying to persuade people to buy something from you or vote for you. You do not release information like that just before an election".

Clinton's counterfactual tale about the infamous Comey letter has been a security blanket for many Democrats.

Let's leave personalities aside. "In other words, Comey admits that he arrived at his conclusion not to prosecute Abedin (or Clinton) not on the basis of the law, but his own preference", The Resurgent said in a May 5 report. While a decision is far from imminent, Clinton did spend time earlier this month at both Wellesley College, her alma mater, and Harvard University, where she sat for an extended interview for the American Secretaries of State Project. "Do you take any personal responsibility?" Oh, my God, how my heart breaks for the family of Jordan Edwards, the teen callously killed by a cop in suburban Dallas.

They have to define who they are.

Popular Video House Republicans just voted to destroy Obama's signature achievement.

"If she's the leader of the Democratic Party, do you think she's going to do this for Andrew Cuomo or Cory Booker's presidential campaign?"

Through almost four hours of sometimes combative questioning from Democrats and Republicans, Comey offered his most full-throated explanation of his actions to date, and he never wavered from his core contention - that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has stayed above the political fray even as its investigators probed senior aides to both the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.

In an article for Axios, Mike Allen reported earlier this week Clinton plans to launch a new political action committee created to fund "resistance" groups Clinton supports.
