Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday that Hillary Clinton is "hurting" and "having a tough time" after her loss in the 2016 presidential election.
Feinstein stopped by Mitchell's show to discuss the latest talk of Russian cyber attacks. Before the end of the interview, Mitchell took the time to ask how Hillary Clinton was doing after her surprising election loss.
Feinstein and Clinton dined on Capitol Hill after last week's retirement ceremony for outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.).
"I think it is fair to say that she's hurting," Feinstein said, "I think all of us know who watch that campaign, it was a very hard campaign for her. The name-calling, the email intrusion, the misinterpretation of what she had done with the emails. Eleven hours in front of a committee while she was a candidate."
Feinstein was sure that Clinton would "come through this fine," but said, "I think this is really a tough time."
