Clinton: Trump unleashed 'dangerous' level of hate

"Comey was more than happy to talk about my emails, but he wouldn't talk about the Russians", she complained.

Trump took issue with her assessment, reviving the "crooked" nickname he'd used against his rival during the presidential contest.

Clinton pointed to the spread of fake news about the campaign, Wikileaks dumps of emails from one of her top advisers, a defunct data operation at the Democratic National Committee and the capabilities of Russian government as factors that created the environment that led to Trump's surprise victory last November.

"I take responsibility for every decision I make - but that's not why I lost", Clinton said during her appearance. "I mean, that just has to be admitted. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC", he tweeted Wednesday.

"DNC data folks: today's accusations are f*******g b******t, and I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense". He added, "Private mode be damned, this is too important".

"The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant", Spicer told the press, refusing to entertain the idea that "covfefe" could have been a simple typo.

Clinton has been muttering about her loss since she recovered from the initial election-night shock, and it has been ugly.

Asked by a moderator who those individuals might be, Clinton said: "We're getting more information about all of the contacts between Trump campaign officials and Trump associates with Russians before, during and after the election".

At a Q&A session during the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California on Wednesday, Clinton joked that Trump's "covfefe" tweet "was a hidden message to the Russians".

Some of those people helping the Russians, she said, had access to "polling and data information". Is she actually considering a run for the Democratic nomination in 2020 - a move that would probably draw more applause from Republicans than Democrats after her failures in both 2008 and 2016?

"I'm leaning Trump", she said of the connections.

She called Comey's dismissal a step towards authoritarianism. Either way, what she said was false, campaign staffers argued.

On May 26, it was disclosed that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign's analytics team as a part of their probe into Russian meddling during the election, CNN reports. She blamed her failure to win Wisconsin on Gov. Scott Walker.
