Hillary Clinton — the woman who to this day denies the results of the 2016 election and whose campaign is responsible for the treasonous Russia-collusion hoax — should be facing her own criminal election “conspiracy” charges, instead of cheering on the Fulton County, Georgia indictment against former President Donald Trump and 18 of his lawyers and advisers for challenging the 2020 election.
“I feel great, you know, just great profound sadness that we have a former president who has been indicted for so many charges that went to the heart of whether or not our democracy would survive,” Clinton said of the latest Trump indictment on “The Rachel Maddow Show” Monday.
“He set out to defraud the United States of America and the citizens of our nation. He used tactics of harassment, intimidation,” Clinton continued. “This is a terrible moment for our country to have a former president accused of these terribly important crimes. The only satisfaction may be that the system is working. That all of the efforts by Donald Trump, his allies, and his enablers to try to silence the truth, to try to undermine democracy have been brought into the light and justice is being pursued.”
Of course, someone who actually threatened the republic, by using illegal tactics to try to thwart the 2016 election, was Hillary Clinton. Her campaign paid for the infamous and fictitious Steele dossier, which the media and intelligence agencies used to smear Trump as a Russian stooge. After igniting what would become a years-long plot to take down her opponent even after he won and assumed office, all Clinton’s campaign received as punishment for their lies and illegal activity was a slap-on-the-wrist fine from the Federal Election Commission.
Not only did Clinton help orchestrate the Russia-collusion hoax, but for years, Clinton publicly denied the results of the 2016 election. Even in 2023, she has not retracted her unfounded claims that the Russians were responsible for Trump’s election in 2016.
With zero consequences, Clinton spread wild conspiracies about the integrity of the 2016 election after commissioning the Steele dossier to try to rig the election for herself. Now Clinton has the gall to cheer on the latest indictment, which is a transparent attempt by the government to punish Trump for legally challenging the results of the 2020 election in Georgia. As The Federalist’s John Davidson notes, in the Georgia prosecutor’s attempt to “get Trump,” the outlandish indictment “criminalizes mundane activities like asking for a phone number, texting, encouraging people to watch a televised hearing, and reserving a room at the Georgia capitol.”
For doing things like objecting to election results — something that has always been legal in this country — and engaging in First Amendment-protected activity, Trump is facing potentially a lifetime in prison. Meanwhile, Clinton blatantly interfered in the 2016 election and has faced zero consequences from our corrupt justice system.
Her campaign’s involvement in the Russia-collusion hoax wasn’t the first time Clinton got off the hook. As U.S. secretary of state under former President Barack Obama, she appeared to commit multiple felonies when she used an insecure private email system to conduct top-secret government business. Later, she and her team destroyed emails and devices with BleachBit and hammers, obstructing a federal investigation into her use of the private email server.
Equally as appalling as Clinton cheering on the political persecution of Trump is the media’s enabling of it. Then again, the likes of Rachel Maddow at MSNBC and others within the corporate media are just as guilty of protecting Clinton, promulgating the Russia-collusion hoax, and interfering in American presidential elections.
