Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is continuing her book tour, which seems to be a blame tour for all the factors contributing to her 2016 election loss.Her latest accusation is that Russia was undoubtedly involved with President Donald Trump and his campaign.
Despite not citing any evidence, Hillary believes “the Trump campaign and other associates have worked really hard to hide their connections with Russians.”Per Free Beacon:
Hillary doubled down on the accusation, alleging Russia “aided and abetted” Trump:
Hillary Clinton is convinced that associates of Donald Trump helped Russia interfere in the 2016 presidential election, arguing in a new interview that she has “no doubt” Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted her to lose.“There certainly was communication and there certainly was an understanding of some sort,” Clinton told USA Today in an interview published Monday night on her new book, What Happened. “Because there’s no doubt in my mind that Putin wanted me to lose and wanted Trump to win.”
“And there’s no doubt in my mind that there are a tangle of financial relationships between Trump and his operation with Russian money,” she continued. “And there’s no doubt in my mind that the Trump campaign and other associates have worked really hard to hide their connections with Russians.”
Clinton said she is certain that elements of then-candidate Trump’s campaign helped the Russian government undermine her candidacy, though she refrained from using the word “collusion.”
“I’m convinced of it,” she said. “I happen to believe in the rule of law and believe in evidence, so I’m not going to go off and make all kinds of outrageous claims. But if you look at what we’ve learned since [the election], it’s pretty troubling.”The two-time failed presidential candidate appeared to describe the alleged collusion as a criminal act, saying that the Kremlin “aided and abetted” Trump. She also warned that the Russians would be back to interfere in future elections.
Counsel to the President Kellyanne Conway shut down the allegations with a tweet for the ages.
Posting to Twitter last night, Conway ridiculed Hillary’s refusal to accept the election loss:
