Former U.S. secretary of state and failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton returns to her alma mater, Wellesley College, on Friday to address its graduating class.
Clinton, a Democrat who suffered a stunning November loss to Republican Donald Trump, has made a series of public appearances over the past two months, speaking publicly on issues including U.S. policy in Syria and the election outcome.
She told a New York conference earlier this month that she would have won if it had not been for the interference of Russian hackers and the announcement just days before the election by then FBI Director James Comey that the bureau had reopened its probe into her use of a private e-mail server.
Clinton has had a long public career since graduating in 1969 from Wellesley, an all-women’s college located in Boston’s suburbs. She was first lady during her husband Bill Clinton’s two terms in the White House and was later elected to the U.S. Senate representing New York state. She made an unsuccessful presidential run in 2008 before serving as the country’s top diplomat during President Barack Obama’s first term.
Clinton has openly criticized Trump, the businessman-turned-politician, for some of his foreign policy views as well as his use of Twitter to publicly lash out at his real and perceived opponents.
But Clinton, 69, has said she has no plans to run for further office, telling the New York group on May 2, “I’m back to being an activist citizen – and part of the resistance.”

Jealous Trump rages against Obama’s Netflix deal in early morning Twitter rant
President Donald Trump betrayed his apparent jealously over Barack Obama's production deal with Netflix in a new Twitter rant.
The former president and first lady Michele Obama made their Hollywood debut last month with the documentary "American Factory" released through joint venture with Netflix and their production company, Higher Ground.
Trump questioned that deal in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee.
"House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent - ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION," Trump tweeted. "So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that “Trump” has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way."
Steve Mnuchin has a mysterious link to Epstein pal accused of procuring young models: report
According to a report from the Daily Beast, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's name appears on legal documents for a modeling agency run by a friend of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who also has been accused of sexual assault.
The reports states that years ago, "Mnuchin [was] listed as the official state point of contact for Next Management Corporation, a company formed in 1988 by modeling-industry insiders Jean-Luc Brunel" at a time when Brunel was accused of drugging and raping at least three models. Brunel has also been accused of supplying young models to Epstein -- a charge he has denied.
‘Why is he lying?’ MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika bust Trump’s ‘bizarre’ claims about Iran meeting
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski busted President Donald Trump's denials about meeting with Iran's leadership without first establishing pre-conditions.
The president strongly suggested that he would commit U.S. troops to a strike on Iran on behalf of Saudi Arabia, which the "Morning Joe" hosts found puzzling, to say the least.
Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!
