    According to a US congressman, Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 US election because her campaign was poorly-managed.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 US election because her campaign was poorly-managed, and not due to alleged Russian interference, US Congressman Joe Wilson told Sputnik on Monday.

    "I believe Ms. Clinton lost not because of Russian interference but because of a very poorly-run campaign," Wilson stated. "And very specifically, it's inconceivable — you would not run a campaign in which you wouldn't actually make an appearance in a battleground state being Wisconsin."

    Earlier on Monday, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee there is an ongoing federal investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the US presidential election.

    Russian officials have repeatedly denied the allegations of meddling in 2016 elections, calling them absurd and created to deflect public opinion from revealed instances of corruption and other pressing domestic concerns.

      It was so much more than ignoring battle ground states. It was a perp walk to queenship.

      michael, my tiny invisible Russian robots who interfered with her campaign are insulted by Congressman Wilson's insinuations.

      What I detest most about the tone of her team's activities can best be exemplified by Hiltard's staffers mocking FBI Director Comey for asking for a bathroom break when Queen Hiltard the Last wears a colostomy bag. Everywhere she goes is her bathroom.

      If her mind and her mouth were her anus, the world would be her bathroom as well. Whether it is Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisia or another half-dozen Arab countries, her direct actions led to the complete pointless and rightly enraging deaths of hundreds of thousands of Muslims, all to absolutely no purpose.

      Clinton lost the election because she is Hillary Clinton. The country didn't want HER. It wouldn't have mattered what kind of campaign was run.

      Bingo! And it wouldn't surprise me that this vile cretin is actually thinking of running yet again.

      "In counsel there is wisdom." She only listened to herself, and she, therefore, got lied to. All of this was evident in the aftermath of the supposed "VICTORY!" celebration where even a $950,000 bottle of wine was thrown at a wall prior to it being opened. She threw it and almost missed the wall-sized wallpaper-thin plasma TV which was to show her accepting her 'win'. She is going to remember that bottle when in hell and she only wants a drop of it on her tongue.
