Doomed Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called American democracy into question during a recent interview, saying she wouldn’t “rule out” the possibility of declaring the 2016 general election illegitimate; adding she wasn’t sure of a “legal, constitutional way to do that.”
Clinton was speaking with NPR when she made the startling claim; refusing to say whether she viewed her failed race to the White House as “legitimate” because of accusations of Russian interference.
“Would you completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?” asked a reporter from NPR.
“No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” fired-back Clinton.
“So what are the means, like, this is totally unprecedented in every way,” she was pressed.
“There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be, but I don’t think they’re on strong ground. But people are making those arguments. I just don’t think we have a mechanism. You know, the Kenya election was just overturned,” said Clinton.
“So what happened in Kenya…is that the Supreme Court there said there are so many really unanswered and problematic questions, we’re going to throw the election out and re-do it. We have no such provision in our country. And usually we don’t need it,” Hillary said.
“Now, I do believe we should abolish the Electoral College,” she added.
