Hillary Clinton acknowledges two of her biggest errors that led to her downfall in the 2016 election may have been the setup and use of a private email server while she was secretary of state and the high-dollar speeches she made to several financial firms.
In her upcoming book, Clinton concedes that it was “a mistake” to deliver high-dollar speeches to Wall Street firms following her tenure at the State Department, contributing to an out-of-touch image that dogged her throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Just because many former government officials have been paid large fees to give speeches, I shouldn’t have assumed it would be okay for me to do it,” Clinton wrote, according to Bloomberg News. “Especially after the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009, I should have realized it would be bad ‘optics’ and stayed away from anything having to do with Wall Street. I didn’t. That’s on me.”
In her first on-air interview about her book that aired Sunday, Clinton also admitted that the setup and use of an unauthorized private email server while she was secretary of state also was a factor in her defeat to Donald Trump.
