Hillary Clinton is already spreading fake news.
The former Democrat 2016 presidential nominee and Trump rival is wasting no time before starting to spread more insidious misinformation weeks before the midterms conclude and Americans officially begin looking toward the next presidential election. Clinton claims “right wing extremists” already have a plan in place to “literally steal” an election for which there are no official candidates.
In a message made for anti-Trump group, Indivisible, Clinton called out the “right wing” threats.
According to their website, the organization is a “grassroots movement of thousands of local Indivisible groups with a mission to elect progressive leaders, rebuild our democracy, and defeat the Trump agenda.”
“I know we’re all focused on the 2022 midterm elections, and they are incredibly important, but we also have to look ahead because, you know what, our opponents certainly are. Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election, and they’re not making a secret of it,” Clinton said in the video according to Mediaite.
At issue for the former presidential candidate is the “right-wing controlled Supreme Court,” which she argued could before 2024 give more power to state legislatures to “overturn presidential elections.” Others have sounded the alarm over state legislatures gaining more control in how to conduct elections in 2024. Clinton herself is no stranger to being openly frustrated at election results themselves, referring to her opponent Trump, who defeated her in 2016, in the past as an “illegitimate president.”
The “very real threat to democracy” presented by Republicans, Clinton said at one point, is keeping her “up at night.”
“We’re all focused on winning the midterms and defending our congressional majorities. That’s critical. But we also must take the fight to MAGA Republicans at the state level,” the group claims.
Some political analysts have predicted Clinton is slowly but surely re-entering the spotlight before ultimately announcing a 2024 presidential run.
In September, Clinton was asked during a CBS interview if she plans to run for president again which she answered “no” but noted she was committed to helping defeat Trump, who has strongly hinted at a 2024 campaign.
“No, no, but I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions,” Clinton said at the time.
“He should be soundly defeated,” Clinton continued “It should start in the Republican Party. Grow a backbone. Stand up to this guy.”
