WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of New York Times Magazine, says Hillary Clinton cried "inconsolably" after her loss to Donald Trump Wednesday morning.

"Here's what I know, not my opinion: About 6:30 this morning she called an old friend. She was crying inconsolably. She couldn't stop crying," Klein said to Steve Malzberg of Newsmax TV. "And her friend said ... it was even hard to understand what she was saying, she was crying so hard."

Klein, who also served as foreign editor of Newsweek, continued, "Eventually her friend said that she could make out that she was blaming James Comey, the director of the FBI, for her loss, and ... the president of the United States for not doing enough."
When Klein asked the source what Clinton meant, the source reportedly answered, "Hillary felt that the president could've stopped Comey a long time ago."
"With the Clintons and especially with Hillary, it's never her fault," Klein commented. "With the Clintons, it's always somebody else's fault, and it's been this way with Hillary all her career."
Meanwhile, reports are circulating about Donald Trump's potential picks for his White House cabinet. Among names being floated for new attorney general are Rudy Giuliani, who would replace Loretta Lynch at the Department of Justice.

Lynch has come under fire for being a potentially compromised official, especially after her private, 40-minute meeting in an airplane with Bill Clinton only a week before Lynch announced in July she would not be prosecuting Hillary Clinton for her unauthorized use of a private email account. FBI sources also claim Lynch did everything in her power to dissuade Comey from issuing his letter to Congress in October announcing the renewed investigation into Clinton's emails.

The DOJ under Lynch also reportedly canned further investigation into the Clinton Foundation last year, in spite of the FBI's calls to look more deeply into potential illegal collusion between the Clintons and the State Department.

Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, is known for having brought the crime rate down by as much as 85 percent during his tenure. Before that, he made a name for himself as a tough U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, prosecuting organized crime families, the Mafia, as well as high-profile Wall Street and political corruption cases.

During the second presidential debate, Trump promised that if he ever became president, he'd open up an investigation into Clinton's corruption.

I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we're going to have a special prosecutor.

"If I'm Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani becomes the AG," political commentator Sean Hannity remarked Thursday in an interview with Giuliani, "I'd be scared to death."

Giuliani joked in response, "I was a better prosecutor than mayor."

He also made a remark about his Catholic faith towards the end of his interview. Discussing a famous case he prosecuted against Michael Milken, who spent two years in federal prison for securities trading violations, Giuliani said he believes Milken is a serious candidate for a presidential pardon.

"That's based on the good works that he's done after his conviction," Giuliani said. "This is the case of a guy who learned his lesson and has really helped society."

"You and I are Catholics," he said to Hannity, "and we know that people can redeem themselves."

Other potential names being floated for Trump's cabinet include Steve Bannon for possible chief of staff, as well as Kellyanne Conway as senior advisor. Both are practicing Catholics.
