Clinton added, “We were seven (percentage) points up” in the polls and slated to win before Comey’s announcement.

Two days before the election, Comey told members of Congress that the FBI found nothing new in the e-mails but Clinton maintained the damage had already been done. On Tuesday afternoon, Clinton sought to clear up who initiated the phone call through his own Twitter feed:

Trump’s victory was affirmed in the Electoral College on Monday. He received 304 Electoral College votes, well above the 270 he needed to clinch a victory. Clinton received 227.
