Hillary Clinton May Challenge Legitimacy Of Presidential Election

Tyler Durden's picture

The US presidential election took place nearly one year ago, but to Hillary Clinton it may as well never have ended.

In an interview with NPR, the former first lady said that "if Russian interference turned out to be deeper than previously thought" she wouldn’t rule out challenging its legitimacy or the outcome.

“No, I wouldn't rule it out,” she said.

Still, even the defeated Democratic nominee admitted that she does not "believe" there is a means to officially challenge the election’s outcome. "I don't know if there's any legal, constitutional way to do that," Clinton said.

“There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on strong ground. But people are making those arguments. I just don’t think we have a mechanism,” Mrs. Clinton said. “I think you can raise questions."

Your sure can, especially if it means staying in the public eye day after day reminding the world how your loss was everyone else's fault but your own, to the point where even her fellow Democrats have said enough. Monday’s interview is the latest in a whirlwind of appearances the former first lady has given as she promotes her book, “What Happened.”

In addition to Russia, over the past week, she’s continued to blame James Comey, Bernard Sanders and others for her defeat, and she’s also doubled down on her call to end the Electoral College.

None of this is new: Hillary has repeatedly blamed Russia’s efforts to intervene in last year’s election for her loss to Donald Trump, but her latest comments reflect the depth of her frustration with the Kremlin’s efforts which apparently were channeled by Trump himself.  She charged that the president knew the Russians were trying to sabotage her campaign, but that it’s unclear if he can be held accountable at this point.

“[Trump] knew they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there, but I don’t know that in our system we have any means of doing that, but I just wanted to add to the point you made. There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more about how they did that.”

Clinton also said she would have reacted differently than Trump did and established an “independent commission with subpoena power” to probe it.

“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,” she said. “Even though it might've advantaged me, I would've said, ‘We've got to get to the bottom of this.’” She probably meant disadvantaged.

She then proceeded to psychoanalyze Trump, saying that "I think part of the reason Trump behaves the way he behaves is that he is a walking example of projection. Whatever he's doing and whatever he thinks is happening he will accuse somebody else of", she concluded without a trace of irony. 

Well, even if Hillary fails to challenge Trump over Putin's unprecedented hacking of millions of middle-class Americans, she can always find comfort in the stupendous, fantastic, if just a little fabricated rating of her book on Amazon, which as of today has 4.8 completely unhacked stars out of 5... with Jeff Bezos' sincerest compliments.

She (if I may be so presumptive) needs to hurry up and have the big seizure.

What difference does it make, anyway, if CrookedHillary loses AGAIN again again again.

Hmmm...now I think I understand why she is so bitter...

Sessions needs to un-recuse himself.

He can do that because promises mean nothing in Washington.

Then he needs to arrest that hag for any one of a few dozen felonies.

Let her contest all she wants from behind bars.

Other than one SCOTUS nominee, what would be different under Cuntlery?  Anyone?

chunga's picture

Yeah, and I don't think anybody knows that much about Gorsuch.

You know what? I hope Honest Hill'rey does this and slaughters the pussy red team for being such pathetic slouches. I'm talking to you Sessions, Gowdy, Ryan, McConnell, and you too Trump. You're all a bunch of spineless bitch-slapped pussies and deserve to be run right over.

I hope this crazy bitch never goes away.  She does more to discredit the Dems than anyone else.

She must be very fucking comfortable that she isn't going to get indicted for anything, otherwise, presumably, it would be in her own best interests to just STFU and go away?

Would someone PLEASE SHUT HER UP!!!

Just fucking die already. Even your former sycophants are sick of your bullshit.

jeff montanye's picture

so why please them?  enrage them such that they split the democratic party in two, a clinton wing of neocons, banksters and warmongers; and a sanders/gabbard wing of socialists, peaceniks and occupy wallstreeters (oh and anyone who wants the healthcare system of the rest of the advanced world).


president trump may have a similar effect on the republican party.


or he may be a fraud.

Ho, hum...yawn. What happened to that Equifax leak? Is that completely out of the news now?

Can't get much more advanced than that.

This from the woman who sold out US uranium to the Russians. Ain't that rich?

Let's for a moment compare Russian influence on US elections in terms of meeting with agents, or funds, or paid propaganda, and the influence of Israel.

Personally, I would like to see open and transparent hearings if not criminal prosecutions on how Israel has influenced not only elections but government and policy of the USA over the past 60 or so years.

And what's all this big deal of Russian influence anyway? How many European, Middle Eastern, South American, African, or Asian elections has the US "influenced" or even  "interfered" with over the years. Just look at the history and relationship between the LDP and the CIA in Japan, or listen to the Dept. Sec. of State Victoria Nuland on the Ukraine.

Even if the Russian influence story was true, and no evidence has been shown to make it so, the hypocrisy and irony of the allegation is derisible.

The term he used was 'freak show'

logicalman's picture

Sure it is.

Who the fuck believes any US election is/was legitimate????

You could even drop 'US' in the above sentence.

Things that go bump's picture

Apparently, this last one was pretty legitimate. You can tell tell by the anger and disbelief of the elites and the Democrats faced with the repudiation of their candidate, whom they thought was a shoe-in with a more than comfortable lead. It must have been terribly embarrassing for them. They thought the fix was in. They vastly underestimated the depths of loathing felt by many people, including many Democrats who chose not to hold their noses and vote for her in key states that the Democrats have carried in the past. I believe she's so tainted with scandal it was irresponsible to cast a vote for her. I don't believe she will contest the election in any meaningful way. It wouldn't bear a close examination, and she knows that very well. I believe her win in the popular vote was entirely engineered using illegal voters. She'll continue to impose herself on us, annoy everyone and embarrass her party as long as she's able and still tolerated by the Democrats. She's the spouse of a former POTUS after all. Thank God that's all she is.

They thought the fix was in.

The fix WAS in. It worked in 2012, they assumed it would work again. They were wrong.

I believe her win in the popular vote was entirely engineered using illegal voters.

Just look at thoroughly corrupt ChiCom agent and failed Clinton campaign manager Terry MacAuliffe pardoning all those felons to vote Dem. The Dems have been doing this for 50 years with blaxploitation, dead voters, and multiple voting.

The ongoing investigation into election fraud has already uncovered rampant discrepancies in blue states, buried by MSM media blackout de facto censorship. These investigations need to be accelerated and high profile indictments brought to prosecution in order to break through the media and state gov swamps.

I agree with what you say.  Additionally, I think she goes on because she making some money with this crap. 


Those sad, sad people.

As they speed through the finish, the flags go down
The fans get up and they get out of town
The arena is empty except for one woman
Still driving and striving as fast as she can
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
And long ago somebody left with the cup
But she's driving and striving and hugging the turns
And thinking of the White House for which she still burns


A little bonus from the 2016 election:  It's going to drive Hillary Clinton completely batshit insane.  Like a shard of glass in her brain she just can't get out.  Give it a few more years and watch what happens.

Hildabeast would be great fodder for the TV comics, but they are all bought and paid for, just like schmuck Bezos.

I refuse to purchase anything from Amazon. 

Imagine if any male was tasked with eating Hillary's pussy?

It would be akin to peeling apart a grilled cheese sandwich---smelling like DEPENDS!

It's excellent, she makes a fool of herself much better than anyone else could to her,

and she won't stop! Keep digging, narcissist!

She has really missed the Zeitgeist, but then, she always did.

Did she forget that Obama dissed her and beat her in a Presidential election too, seems he is a man as well.... start crying!

OT but the US of A is starting strategic preps for conflict. 4th of July parades featuring tanks and ICBMs soon. MAGA will likely be jumpstart nutrition and recruitment campaigns if the military controls the White House. http://www.moonofalabama.org/2017/09/trumps-insurgency.html#more

They're all on her side, and Trump will be soon enough.  Well, not her side, just that side.  That she hasn't been shackled yet says a lot.
