Clinton blames defeat on Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey

Ms Clinton told fundraisers and donors in a conference call that Mr Comey's two letters to Congress on the probe had tilted crucial states towards Republican Donald Trump, the USA media, including Quartz and CNN, reported.

In New York, several thousand protesters marched peacefully up Fifth Avenue past its glitzy store fronts, some already bearing Christmas decorations, before filling the streets at the foot of the Trump Tower, the president-elect's skyscraper home.

"Whatever his actual intentions, FBI Director [James] Comey probably helped deliver the White House to Donald Trump on a silver platter", said Schirach, who is president of the Global Policy Institute, a think tank in Washington, DC.

Just 11 days before the election, Comey announced the FBI was looking into new emails that could be pertinent to its investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state. Addressing the fundraisers and donors in a private meet on Saturday, Hillary reportedly claimed that Comey's two letters to Congress just days before the election date had shifted the till then favorable wave in key states towards rival Donald Trump.

Republicans Maintain Control of Senate; Democrats Win House Again
In the Senate, McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, was expected to remain at his post for at least the next two years. The night began with majority control of the Senate up for grabs, with 34 of the 100 seats available.

On the campaign trail, Trump has pushed the idea of a war on police, and he told the International Association of Chiefs of Police that holding police accountable should mostly be the work of state and local governments.

"Trump spent the last four days of this campaign engaged in a nonstop attack on me personally, and the result is the result", Mrs Clinton said.

"I see a lot of silver lining in this", a former employee in the Bill Clinton administration was quoted as saying.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? Or will President Trump instead choose a useful ally, one who might be counted on to authorize or at the very least permit the power of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to undermine Trump's enemies, including the next Democratic nominee? In 2004, as the Justice Department's No. 2 official, he refused to reauthorize a surveillance program ordered by President George W. Bush.

Trump Says He's Willing to Keep Parts of Obamacare
Both of the features of the ACA that Trump said he favors are also included in House Speaker Paul Ryan's health plan. Nor do they have contingency plans, because most didn't expect a Trump victory.

No one could have counted on the intrusion of Anthony Weiner, the disgraced congressman and estranged husband of Clinton's longtime aide Huma Abedin.

Trump's performance in the October 19 debate was widely panned, especially his refusal to say that he would respect the outcome of the election if he lost.

Undecided white suburban women, in particular, were reminded of the e-mail imbroglio and broke decidedly in his favour, Clinton campaign aides said. "But our analysis is that Jim Comey's letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless - and proven to be - stopped our momentum".

"If Trump chooses [to] replace Comey with a sycophantic yes-man, or if he permits Comey to resign over law or principle, that will be a clear bellwether to both the national security and civil libertarian communities that things are going terribly wrong", they wrote.

Exit polls: Cry for change drives Trump triumph in Kentucky
