From Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes:
Mostly she was mad - mad that she'd lost and that the country would have to endure a Trump presidency... Hillary kept pointing her finger at Comey and Russia. 'She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,' this person said.
That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn't entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument. "Mook" is campaign manager Robby of that ilk, and "Podesta" is John, her campaign chairman and, with his brother Tony Podesta, one of the two Podestas who founded the Podesta Group, now under investigation for violating the Foreign Agent Registration Act. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Notice Mr Allen and Miss Parnes' choice of words: Whether or not the election in reality "wasn't entirely on the up-and-up", Messrs Mook and Podesta and the rest of the Clinton team decided to "engineer the case" that it wasn't.
And engineering-wise they did a pretty impressive job, as you'll know if you're one of the impressionable rubes who gets his news from ABC, CBS, NBC or CNN. If the campaign team had worked its precision engineering half as well on the actual campaign, they would have won the election "on the up-and-up" and saved themselves the need for a post-election campaign.
By "Russian hacking" of the election, they mean that some Internet trolls from halfway round the world bought a few fake Facebook ads, half...

You don't say.
We saw this already...
LOL - a lie right out of the gate - the first sentence! Yeah, because she cares so much about you and me - LOL
It’s going to be a very interesting Monday. Nobody here is fooled. They are traitors waging war against their duly elected government. This can not stand.
At which point things took a strange and disturbing turn. Steele's dossier was passed along to the FBI. It seems a reasonable inference, to put it as blandly as possible, that the dossier twas used to justify the opening of what the Feds call an “FI” (Full Investigation), which in turn was used to justify a FISA order permitting the FBI to put Trump's associates under surveillance. Indeed, it seems a reasonable inference that the dossier was created and supplied to friendly forces within the bureau in order to provide a pretext for an FI, without which surveillance of the Trump campaign would not be possible.
A view by Mark Steyn widely shared here at good old FR.
I was saying that all of this anti Trump was her doing all along. The saying is “if u are going to kill the queen , you had better kill the queen”. Trump trying to be nice to the most evil person since the beginning of mankind was a mistake; a mistake I hope he does not have learn over and over.
My only hope is that she will walk in front of a train before she does more harm.
I was going to pull a choice quote from the article, but there are too many! I’d pull quote the whole article!
Hillary is only a symptom of disease.
It is the Deep State and its rogue, fascist “Intelligence Community” working hand in glove with a thoroughly corrupt National Media that is the cancer eating away at our Republic.
Even if it takes blood and bone this cancer must be destroyed at its root - or this Republic will surely die.
They got a REAL problem...... b/c the (faked) dossier was actually used to get the go-ahead to conduct surveillance on individuals in the Trump campaign, and president Trump himself......and unmasking innocent citizens in the process, including General Kelly.
Their problem is ....it is a felony to WITHHOLD info from the court to get the OK to surveil someone.
<><>Did UN Amb Power's innumerable requests for a FISA warrant stipulate that Obama and Susan Rice wire-tapped Trump Tower......while Trump was a candidate?
<><> Did Power's obsessive requests stipulate that Obama's CIA director Brennan used phony foreign intel as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into candidate Trump?
<><> Did the request for a FISA warrant stipulate that phony foreign intel led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to candidate Trump (residing and conducting business in Trump Tower)?
<><> Did the request for a FISA warrant stipulate that foreign intel gave cover to Susan Rice's sifting/unmasking operations?
I didn't think so.
REALITY CHECK---FROM ONE OF THE MANY EXPOSES---Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Obama-era Brennan at the CIA used phony foreign intel as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump.
That led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice's sifting/unmasking operations.
Not only Brennan.... "Susan The Sifter" had a dog in this hunt......Hillary tapped her for Secy of State. One could conclude Comey also had his reasons .....to stay on as a Hillary factotum. Mighty powerful incentives for anti-Trump shenanigans.
.......apparently there are records proving that Obama's CIA director, John Brennan, oversaw repeated spying on the phone calls of President Donald Trump and millions of other private American citizens. An audiotape just released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow is part of a civil case........
Whomever tried the translation from English to Russian screwed-up several times....... and this is how they were outed.
This is one aspect of the arrogant confidence Hillary and her mob of criminals, dirty tricksters and corrupt government officials held in 2016 of her upcoming election victory.
And also helps explain the earth-shattering, over-the-top disappointment in her loss and the refusal to accept Donald Trump as president.
They knew that they had stacked the deck against Donald Trump at a level never seen before. They knew they had cheated and rigged the election in every way possible to ensure a Hillary win.
So the only way they could explain a Trump victory is to think he out-cheated her.
They had almost the entire corrupt federal bureaucracy working for Hillary and against Donald Trump and using (abusing) the power and financial resources of the federal government to push her into the presidency.
They knew that they had put into motion every dirty, filthy trick they could think of and that nothing could stand in her path as she made her inevitable march to the White House.
Except they never took into account the will of the people and the winning strategy of the Trump team.
If the hildabutchbitch campaign had been as efficient during the actual campaign as they have been after the fact, the PIAPS would now be madam pResident.
Thanks be to God.
Imagine how every day would be a living hell if this happened.
Mad in a vicious, envious, vengeful ex-wife kind of way.
The anger that comes from the older, unattractive ex-wife who has been dumped and banished to make way for a younger, stunningly beautiful, kinder woman who the stepchildren absolutely adore and will protect from their mother.
Also mad in the sense of Aerys Targeryon mad.
The ignorant are easily lead.
