Former First Lady, U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is now claiming that “right-wing radicals” are somehow scheming to steal the 2024 presidential election.
Clinton made the polarizing assertion in a video addressed to “Indivisibles” last week.
“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election,” Clinton proclaimed in the video.
“The Right-wing-controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures, yes, you heard me that correctly, state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections. Just think if that happens? The 2024 presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote or even by the anachronistic electoral college, but by state legislatures, many of them Republican controlled.” Clinton stated later on in the video.
In 2000, Clinton notably accused former President George W. Bush of being selected rather than elected over her husband Bill’s former Vice President Al Gore, in what appeared to be an obviously insinuation that Bush had somehow stolen the election.
Clinton, who turns 75 this week, is said to be considering a run if President Biden does not run for re-election.
Although she gave no fresh suggestions in the video, she appeared to be setting the basis for increased distrust and divisiveness if the Republican nominee won the presidency.
Clinton also promoted a new Political Action Committee named “Crush the Coup” and encouraged supporters to send money to it.
The group is dedicated to trying to ensure state legislatures across the country are controlled by Democrats.
The organization is attempting to gain Democratic majorities in state legislatures that it believes will be critical in preventing conservative moves to overturn election regulations.
Democrats have long claimed that the 2016 presidential election was rigged.
The three-year probe into Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia, which was predicated on a Clinton campaign assertion, yielded no proof.
