Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has stepped up her Putin “election interference” narrative against former President Donald Trump as the 2024 presidential elections draws closer.
Speaking with former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Clinton claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin could indeed interfere again in 2024, like she claimed he did in 2016 when she sorely lost to Donald Trump.
“He has indeed interfered in our elections in the past,” Psaki began on her MSNBC show Inside With Jen Psaki.
“It’s not something, as you experienced firsthand, is not something we talk about a lot.”
“Do you fear that that is something that could be happening for 2024, do you think we should be talking about it more?” Psaki asked.
Clinton said there was “no doubt” that Putin interfered in the 2016 election, a claim she continued to push throughout Trump’s presidency.
However, Clinton is now trying to resurrect to the now debunked “Putin interference” claim against Trump for the 2024 election.
“I don’t think, despite all of the deniers, there is any doubt that he interfered in our election or that he has interfered in many ways in the internal affairs of other countries, funding political parties, funding political candidates, buying off government officials in different places,” Clinton said.
“He hates democracy. He particularly hates the West, and he especially hates us,” she said.
“And he has determined that he can do two things simultaneously,” Clinton continued.
“He can try to continue to damage and divide us internally, and he’s quite good at it,” she added.
Clinton claimed that Putin worked hard to stop her from winning the presidency because he wanted to “expand his reach” and seize more territory.
“Part of the reason he worked so hard against me is because he didn’t think that he wanted me in the White House,” she said.
“So, we are where we are and part of the challenge is to continue to explain to the American public that, you know, the kind of leader Putin is — this authoritarian dictator who literally kills his opposition, kills journalists, poisons people who disagree with him, invades other countries, interferes with our election — that is part of the alternative we have to reject this in this election,” she said.
“We have to reject authoritarianism; we have to reject a kind of creeping fascism almost of people who are really ready to turn over their thinking, their votes to wannabe dictators,” Clinton added.
“We can’t allow that to proceed.”
However, contrary to Clinton’s claims, the Durham report totally debunked the Russian collusion and exonerated former President Donald Trump.
As The Daily Fetched reported earlier this year, the 300-page Durham report indicated the Department of Justice and FBI “failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law” when it launched the Trump-Russia investigation.
The Durham report further included that the Trump-Russia investigation was based on “raw, unanalyzed and uncorroborated intelligence.
Durham’s final report exonerated Trump of any Russian collusion and vindicated his claims of being targeted by a politicized federal law enforcement agency,
The FBI launched a politically motivated witch hunt against Trump, using weak pretexts to ‘swiftly’ launch an investigation while ignoring intelligence that Clinton’s campaign planned to accuse Trump of colluding with Russia in order to distract the public from her private server.
But the political witch hunt against Trump is continuing in other forms.
Politico notes that Trump faces 34 felony counts in connection with hush money payments to a porn star.
In Florida, he faces 40 felony counts for hoarding classified documents and impeding efforts to retrieve them.
In Washington, D.C., he faces four felony counts for his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
And in Georgia, he faces 13 felony counts for his election interference in that state.
Last month, Clinton gloated about the Georgia indictment against Trump, claiming it proves the judicial “system is working” and “justice is being pursued.”
“It’s hard to believe. I don’t feel satisfaction, but I feel great profound sadness that we have a former president who has been indicted for so many charges that went right to the heart of whether or not our democracy would survive.”
“We don’t know yet what the charges coming out of Georgia, but if you stop and think about what the public evidence is and you talk about some of that for the last hour, he set out to defraud the U.S. and citizens of our nation,” Clinton added.
“He used tactics of harassment, intimidation, made threats. He and his allies went after state officials, local officials responsible for conducting elections,” Clinton continued.
