  • Hillary Clinton says it's fair to question legitimacy of Trump presidency

Hillary Clinton has given her first full interview since dramatically losing the USA presidential election and has placed the blame for her loss on Russian hackers, Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and Wikileaks.

"If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president", Clinton told CNN's Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women event in New York City on Tuesday. I was the person who was on the ballot.

Clinton blamed "everybody but herself", Republican congressman Jeff Duncan said on Twitter.

She poked fun at Trump's tweets and his repeated comments about the election while saying she was on her way to winning the election if not for a last-minute letter to Congress from FBI Director James Comey and the release of campaign emails from WikiLeaks. "Now the North Koreans are always interested ... in trying to get Americans to try to come to negotiate to elevate their status and their position and we should be very careful about giving that way". "Yes", Clinton said, teasing that she'd have much more to say about that in her upcoming memoir this fall.

The popular vote has been a source of contention with Trump, who argues that he essentially won the popular vote over Hillary.

Clinton also remarked that Russian President Vladimir Putin "certainly interfered in our election, and it was created to hurt me and help my opponent".

Clinton points to Comey and WikiLeaks for her election loss.

Bayern Munich wins record 5th straight Bundesliga title
Retiring Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm will lift the Bundesliga Shield for the last time at the end of the season. Bayern are just one shy of a 50 percent hit-rate in Bundesliga's 54-season history, winning nearly every other year.

Mrs Clinton said she was "on the way to winning" until a combination of events in the final days. Clinton said during her keynote address at the annual conference hosted by the Professional BusinessWomen of California. If he wants to tweet about me then I am happy to be the diversion because we have lot of things to worry about.

She was also faulted for not spending enough campaign time in traditionally Democratic strongholds MI and Wisconsin, states which fell to Trump on election day.

"I am writing a book and it is a painful process reliving the campaign", she explained.

This lack of affordable, fast internet service in some places means kids don't have the "technical capacity to actually do the homework assignments that they are given", she said.

She wasn't entirely dismissive of President Trump, though, revealing that she did support his decision last month to launch a missile strike in Syria after the country's president, Bashar Assad, used chemical weapons against his own people.

After two unsuccessful presidential campaigns, Clinton is not expected to run for public office again. The US government now says the Russian government was responsible for hacking John Podesta's emails and releasing them through WikiLeaks just hours after President Trump's damaging Access Hollywood tape broke.
