Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer had choice words for Hillary Clinton in an interview over the weekend, blasting the Democratic presidential nominee for blaming Russia for her loss to now-President Trump — who picked up on the jab in a Monday morning tweet.
“When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things—Comey, Russia—you blame yourself,” Schumer told the Washington Post. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
Schumer, D-N.Y., was referring to comments Clinton has made tying her November election loss to multiple factors — including former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to re-open the investigation into her private email server as well as the email hack of her campaign chairman’s account.
The president echoed Schumer’s comments on Twitter early Monday, using them to suggest the probes of Russian meddling in the election and possible coordination with his associates are going nowhere.
