New York( CNN) Hillary Clinton delivered her most forceful criticism of President Donald Trump's 2016 victory on Tuesday, taking personal responsibility for her failed campaign but also pointed to the timing of a letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference as factors.

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your chairwoman, ” she told CNN's Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York.

“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was presidential candidates, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very well informed current challenges, their own problems, the shortfalls that we had, ” Clinton said, before adding that she was “on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off.”
