Mook: A Lot of Voters Didn’t Turn Out Because They Thought Hillary Was Going to Win

‘They voted for a different candidate because they thought Hillary was going to win’

EXCERPT:

MOOK: "By the way, there are a lot of important revelations in this book about Donald Trump, and I'm glad that they're there. But the point from my perspective is, he made a mistake. I don't think this was the right decision. Guess what, I made a lot of mistakes. A lot of other people made a lot of mistakes on this campaign. In large part, just like James Comey, because people thought Hillary was going to win. I think a lot of voters didn't turn out because they thought Hillary was going to win. I think they voted for a different candidate because they thought Hillary was going to win. So all of us did things we wish we hadn't done or we would have done differently. And, again, the important takeaway here for me is, the FBI just should not get involved in the future. And it certainly shouldn't conflate its own reputation with what's best."
