It’s been over four years since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, and, suffice it to say, she’s still not over it.
No, the former First Lady is still as salty as ever, especially now that Trump has suffered the glut of embarrassments of another impeachment, the Capitol riots, and his recent electoral loss to Joe Biden.
With only hours left in Trump’s first term, Clinton used her podcast to lay out as wild a conspiracy theory as we’ve ever heard regarding Russia and the NYC business mogul-turned-politician.
Clinton, one of the central champions of the debunked Trump-Russia collusion narrative that dominated the first years of Trump’s presidency, revealed her own suspicion that Trump could have been in contact with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the day of the protest.
“We learned a lot about our system of government over the last four years with a president who disdains democracy and, as you have said numerous times, has other agendas,” Clinton said.
“What they all are, I don’t think we yet know. I hope historically we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings. I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton continued, also placing blame on Trump’s “enablers,” “accomplices,” and “cult members” — a likely reference to his supporters, whom she famously referred to as “deplorables” during her 2016 campaign […]
Clinton first began circulating rumors about Donald Trump’s supposed Russian connections during her debates against Trump back in 2016, and hasn’t stopped since.
