Never mind that Hillary Clinton said it was “horrifying” to hear Donald Trump suggest that he might not accept the results of the November election. Now that he’s been elected, she’ll use any pretense to de legitimize those very results.
Right now, she’s focused like a laser beam on the report that casts suspicion on Russian hacksters for trying to influence the election. That’s a great way to detract attention from the emails themselves, which confirm our worst fears about her cavalier, rules-don’t-apply-to-me approach to power. We’re supposed to forget about all that and assume that Russia actually changed the outcome of our election, when we had an exhaustive list of reasons to reject Hillary anyway. As a candidate, Hillary’s worst enemy in this election wasn’t Russia, or Republicans, or even Donald Trump. Her worst enemy was her own law-breaking, lie-telling, secret-keeping self.
A group of ten electors has written an open letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, calling for more details about the report. They want it before December 19, which is the day the Electoral College votes, so the implication is that it might change some votes. Interestingly, the letter was posted by Christine Pelosi, a California elector and the daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. No, there’s nothing political about this at all.
The Clinton campaign has released a statement in support. And, of course, there’s nothing political about that, either.
