Hillary Clinton apologized to Obama on election night

Former President Bill Clinton reportedly told his wife, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, that she should not apologize for using a private server to discuss classified and highly sensitive matters while serving as secretary of state.

But a clearly stunned Clinton, who had just hours earlier been convinced she was on the verge of becoming the first female president of the United States, could not bring herself to do it.

At one point, the authors describe how, in the early hours of November 9 - not long after the Associated Press officially called the race for Trump, and hours after most of the Clinton camp had all but given up hope of winning - the 2016 Democratic nominee got a call from President Obama.

Clinton reportedly called TrumPutin and offered her congratulations and conceded.

"Her campaign's approach was to turn out the base as much as possible, and they spent a lot of time trying to churn people out and not so much time on persuasion", Allen, head of content at the political news website SideWire, told host Bill Tucker on Tuesday's "America Talks Live".

Last year, the FBI investigated Clinton's use of a private email server and whether she had improperly stored or transmitted classified information during her tenure as secretary of state.

If you've been following the Clintons for the last 30 years, the rumors sound a whole lot more plausible than the calm, collected, conversation that appears in this book.




"This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and I'm sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country", Clinton said, Yahoo News reports.

To this end, she had a trusted aide access the campaign's server and download the e-mails sent and received by top staffers. Obama's legacy and the dreams of her presidency lay shattered at Donald Trump's feet.

According to Yahoo News, the authors thought that they would be watching the glass ceiling above women being "shattered" when they embed into Clinton's campaign.

"She struggled with the question of why Obama hadn't done more to apprise the public that the Russians had gone way beyond what had been reported [in influencing the presidential election]", the authors continue.

"Hillary's campaign was so spirit-crushing that her aides eventually shorthanded the feeling of impending doom with a simple mantra", they added.

"She had let him down". But Clinton resisted issuing an apology, saying in an interview in September 2015 she was "sorry that this has been confusing to people".
