Clinton Won't Say the Word 'Collusion' but She's 'Convinced' of It

In "What Happened", her new book due out September 12, 2017, Hillary Clinton blames what she calls voter suppression in Wisconsin and other states as one reason she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.

Mrs Hillary Clinton says she will not run for public office again, but the former Democratic presidential nominee is not giving up on trying to make her mark in politics.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she paid US$1.6million (NZ$2.2 million) for a home in her NY neighborhood so that Secret Service would have a place to live after she was elected president.

Clinton said she was "convinced" that Trump and his teams had "financial relationships" with Russia and made use of "Russian money". "Because there's no doubt in my mind that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin wanted me to lose and wanted Trump to win".

Clinton also recounted election night and how her eventual loss sank in.

The interview comes a day after Clinton released "What Happened", which recounts the 2016 presidential campaign.

While she also mentioned the "Access Hollywood" tape, which indeed deserves the "deplorable" label, Clinton's emphasis was on Trump's appeal to his supporters, suggesting that indeed the millions who voted for the Republican were "deplorable".

"We have a reality show that leads to the election of a president", she said.

Lauer asked if Clinton believed that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation, but Clinton deferred to the investigation now underway by a special federal prosecutor.

Indeed, in excerpts of her book that have leaked, Clinton takes swipes at many Democrats, including rivals like Sen.

Hillary continued and said she attempted to stay distracted with other things to get her mind off of the devastating moment.

During the wide-ranging interview, Clinton reflected on the campaign and said she will "always feel terrible" that she could not counter the opposition against her. Trump has repeatedly sought to discredit the Russian Federation investigation by calling it "an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won".

The Rasmussen survey, based on a sample of 1,000 people polled between September 10 and 11, also found that 30 percent thought Clinton should remain on the public stage. In the end, we decided it would be better to just let it go and try to move on.
