Hillary Clinton told donors on a conference call Saturday that she blames FBI Director James Comey for stopping her campaign's momentum in the final stretch, a source on the call told NBC News. 

“There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful," Clinton said on the call, according to the source. "But our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum,” she said.

Just weeks before the election, Comey sent a letter to congress that said the FBI found additional emails pertinent to the investigation into Clinton's use of a private server while secretary of state. 

The emails were later determined to not warrant further action by the FBI.
