Hillary Clinton Believes We Could Still Overturn the Election


We’re only a week into Hillary Clinton’s book tour, but it feels like it’s been dragging on for months.  This Monday, she appeared on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross to voice her opinion that she still might not accept Trump’s victory.

Essentially, she says she’s playing the waiting game with Robert Mueller’s investigation.  When he “inevitably” finds ties to Russia, Clinton will have something ready to go “in her back pocket”.  She is suspicious that President Trump didn’t launch an investigation into Russia’s hand in the election.

GROSS: As more and more information comes out about the depth of Russia’s interference in the election, do you think, at some point, that it would be legitimate to challenge the legitimacy of the election?

CLINTON: Let me just put it this way.  If I had lost the popular vote but won the electoral college and in my first day as president the intelligence community came to me and said, ‘The Russians influenced the election,’ I would’ve never stood for it…I would’ve said, ‘We’ve got to get to the bottom of this.’ I would’ve set up an independent commission with subpoena power and everything else.

And then, Hillary went on to say she “wouldn’t rule out” challenging Trump’s win.

Ironically, this is highly reminiscent of Clinton being “disturbed” when Trump said he wouldn’t accept the results of the election if he had lost.

GROSS: I want to get back to the question, would you completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?
CLINTON: No. I would not. I would say —
GROSS: You’re not going to rule it out.
CLINTON: No, I wouldn’t rule it out.

Then, Clinton mentioned that Kenya overturned an election recently, and it went off without a hitch.  Kenya has a population of 48 million.  The United States is at 323 million and growing.  Something tells me it would be a little more different over here.  Such is Clinton’s full blown denial.
