During the 2016 campaign, there was a moment when candidate Donald Trump took time to answer a question about whether or not he’d honor the election if he lost. The Clinton camp screamed bloody murder.
Since November 2016 however, it has been Clinton who has been suggesting that the 2016 election was “rigged.” On Friday, Clinton once again stated her belief that Trump won because of Russian interference.
“…there are lots of questions about its legitimacy” because of Russian agents who participated in a “disinformation campaign…wasn’t just influencing voters, it was determining the outcome,” Clinton told the far-Left magazine Mother Jones.
Clinton further grounded her accusations by naming specific American states.
“In a couple of places, most notably Wisconsin, I think it had a dramatic impact on the outcome. It seems likely that it cost me the election [in Wisconsin] because of the tens of thousands of people who were turned away and the margin being so small.”
Last November, many pundits focused on the fact that Trump won Wisconsin because the state has historically been known as a Democratic stronghold.
It is worth mentioning that when Green Party candidate Jill Stein push through recount efforts in certain states like Pennsylvania, Donald Trump actually got more votes than previously thought.
In Wisconsin, Stein’s efforts found 131 more Trump voters.
Focusing on voting in Wisconsin may not be such a good move for Mrs. Clinton.
Ever since her defeat however, Clinton has tried to disrupt the Trump administration by saying that President Trump is an illegitimate leader. Books and articles have been pumped out in order to show that Trump and his administration colluded with Russia in order to steal the election.
While all of these allegations have been front-and-center in the American news, the Clinton team has received some massive body blows from both conservative writers and other Democrats.
Former DNC official Donna Brazile has not only come forward to say that the DNC was a subsidiary of the Clinton campaign a full year before she won the nomination, but that she also feared that DNC IT staffer Seth Rich may have been murdered because of his suspected involvement in the leak of the DNC emails.
On the right side of the aisle, the Republican base has been trying to galvanize their representatives to go after Mrs. Clinton for her involvement in the Uranium One deal of 2011. Many claim that Clinton took bribes from Russian businesses and the Kremlin in order enrich herself and the Clinton Foundation.
FBI agent William Campbell claims that he recorded the Clintons outright accepting bribes from Russian agents carrying money-heavy briefcases. If these recordings make it to Congress, then Clinton would have to answer some very serious charges including participating in a conspiracy with the Russian government.
Is Hillary Clinton wrong?
The irony of all of this is very palpable.
While the recent calls for a Democratic “reckoning” over the sexual assault allegations against Bill Clinton indicate that Clintonian power inside of the Democrat Party is slipping, Hillary’s voice still commands the mainstream media to look and see. This is why here shouts of “illegitimate” are troubling and potentially dangerous.
