Hillary Won’t Rule Out Denying Legitimacy of Election [VIDEO]

Clinton insists that Russian meddling might come to light that leads to denying legitimacy to the Trump presidency.

Hillary Clinton lost spectacularly to Donald Trump, so now she says there may be reason for denying legitimacy to that election. At a time when many Liberals are moving on from the Russia conspiracy theory, she can’t afford to do so. After all, if the DNC stops worrying about the Russians and the legitimacy of the election, then they are affirming that she lost the election fair and square. That means they’re moving on from the Clinton dynasty. She can’t have that.

CNN reports, “Clinton opens door to questioning legitimacy of 2016 election.

Hillary Clinton, in an interview that aired Monday on NPR, said she “would not” rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election if Russian interference is deeper than currently known.

The comment, a remarkable step for the former Democratic nominee, exemplifies Clinton’s belief that President Donald Trump and his campaign could have knowingly received help from Russian operatives in the 2016 election.

Clinton has said previously that she conceded to Trump quickly and attended his inauguration because the nation’s peaceful transfer of power is critical. But her comments to NPR signal that as the depths of Russia’s interference are revealed she could envision a time when she questions Trump’s legitimacy as president.

NPR’s Terry Gross asked Clinton directly during the interview whether she would “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?”

“No. I would not,” Clinton said.

Gross asked: “You’re not going to rule it out?”

“No,” Clinton said. “I wouldn’t rule it out.”
