In an interview yesterday, Hillary Clinton blamed her loss on several factors, including FBI Director Jim Comey’s disclosure of State Department emails on Anthony Weiner’s computer.

Comey’s testifying now on Capitol Hill. He’s defending his disclosures as equitable for Clinton and Trump, but said he’s mildly nauseous the Clinton probe might’ve affected the election.
