“The View” co-hosts on Wednesday debated Hillary Clinton blaming her election loss on James Comey and WikiLeaks. Check out the video below.

While acknowledging she made “mistakes,” Clinton said this week that Comey’s FBI letter and the email leaks cost her the presidency. She said if the election was held in October, prior to Comey’s letter, she’d be president right now. In response to the comments, some have accused Clinton of not taking full responsibility for her loss.

On the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg asked, “Does that cover some reasons as to why? Or is she overlooking stuff?” Jedediah Bila declared, “This was the most unimpressed I’ve been with Hillary Clinton… I’m waiting for a moment where she just doesn’t blame anyone but herself.” Bila then rattled off all the reasons she believes Clinton is solely at fault, from her past dealings with Libya, poor campaigning, not connecting with the masses, and picking a bad running mate.

But when Bila said Clinton “lied to people,” Goldberg angrily cut her off, saying, “Don’t bring up the lie! Don’t bring up lying about people. Because if we’re going to compare…” Bila backed down, but Sara Haines said she agreed with her conservative colleague. Despite voting for Clinton, Haines remarked, “I was a little shocked when I saw her say that at first… In some ways, I think she still might be missing something.”

Sunny Hostin, however, exclaimed, “But she won three million more votes that Trump did, so her message was out there! The bottom line is the FBI was investigating Donald Trump’s Russian ties since last July, but didn’t mention it… I don’t know that she missed the mark.”

Joy Behar acknowledged to Bila, “She was not a great candidate. I agree with you.” But Goldberg maintained, “We’re never going to know why she lost or why he won because the waters are so muddied… I think both sides should really be questioning what the hell has gone on and how did we get here.” And, she said, the “saddest” part is Americans “will never know what really would’ve happened” had outside factors not been involved. Watch the hosts of “The View” debate Clinton’s remarks below.
