It has been more than three months since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election, and her staff is still circulating blame for the embarrassing defeat.

On February 20, Politico reported that Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta claimed there were “forces within the FBI” that wanted Clinton to lose. “I’m not sure they really understood the alternative, but they wanted her to lose. I think that’s one possibility,” Podesta said in an interview.

What Podesta fails to acknowledge is that the FBI didn’t start the investigation into Clinton’s private email server—the State Department did. Journalists encouraged the investigation under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) after uncovering that Clinton used a private email server and did not properly address previous inquiries into it. In April 2015, CNN reported, “it is discovered that Clinton ignored questions from Congress in 2012 about her email.”

Clinton, her staff, and the Democratic establishment have yet to acknowledge how terrible of a strategy it was to coalesce around a presidential nominee under an FBI investigation. Never before in recent American history has a president been elected who was under investigation from their previous employer. However, Clinton remains an infallible icon for her loyal supporters, including her staff who perpetuate self-serving narratives to avoid accountability.
