Hillary Clinton, who ran for president but lost, seems eager to blame Russian interference for a Republican win in the 2024 election.
The Democratic senator, who is 75 years old, was on Jen Psaki’s MSNBC show this week. There, she suggested yet again that the 2016 election was rigged by Slavic ghosts against the American people, saying, “the Russians have proven themselves as being highly skilled at interfering, so if Russian President Vladimir Putin gets the chance, he is going to do it again.”
Clinton said months before she lost by a huge margin in 2016 that the leak from the Democratic National Committee, which showed an organized effort to keep her rival, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), from running, was the work of Russian intelligence services. The disputed claim that Russians were involved in her embarrassment after the leak finally gave way to a bigger Russian meddling story that held former President Trump back during his four years in office.
The reports carefully made by special counsels Robert Mueller and John Durham showed there was no solid proof of Russian collusion, which was opposite to what Clinton said and what the liberal media happily spread.
Later research showed that if there was any foreign influence, it probably didn’t make a difference. This didn’t include the Steele report, which was gathered from foreign sources for the Clinton campaign and was very useful for Democrats. Journalists at the Washington Post were given awards for spreading the debunked “Russia hoax” story. For example, the paper admitted that so-called Russian bots “absolutely saw no measurable effect in changing minds or even influencing voter behavior” before the 2016 presidential election.
The evidence and facts have not, however, changed the minds of Clinton or her leftist media friends.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll found that Trump is 10 points ahead of President Biden in a potential head-to-head race. On Clinton’s show this week, Psaki said that Putin “has interfered in our election in the past. We don’t talk about it a lot, as you obviously know from personal experience. If that sounds like something that might happen in 2024, do you believe we need to talk about it more?”
Hillary Clinton replied, “I believe we need to speak about it a lot more because I do not believe there is any doubt that he was interfering in our election or that he has been meddling in many other countries’ internal affairs by providing funding for political candidates and parties and buying off government officials in various locations, despite all the denials.”

“That’s his thing; you know what he does, which is hate democracy. He really hates the West and really hates us,” Clinton concluded. “Part of the challenge is to keep telling the American people that Putin serves as an authoritarian dictator who kills his opponents, poisons people who don’t agree with him, invades other countries, and meddles in our election. This is part of the other option we have to turn down in this election.”
Clinton said that in the 2024 election, the decision is not between Republicans and Democrats, but between Democrats and “a form of creeping fascism.” She also repeated Russiagate themes that have been disproved.
