Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton resumed her non-stop attempt to de-legitimize her 2016 race against Donald Trump Thursday; claiming she was the “target of a Russian plot” to steal the election.
“Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people,” wrote Clinton in an op-ed published by the Washington Post.
“My perspective is not just that of a former candidate and target of the Russian plot. I am also a former senator and secretary of state who served during much of Vladimir Putin’s ascent, sat across the table from him and knows firsthand that he seeks to weaken our country,” she adds.
The former Secretary of State went on to urge Congress to “hold substantive hearings” that “fill in the gaps” of Robert Mueller’s final “no collusion” conclusion.

ANOTHER EXCUSE: Politico Blames Hillary's ELECTION DISASTER On... Local Newspapers?
Online magazine Politico achieved the impossible this weekend, finding a completely new excuse for Hillary Clinton’s surprise defeat to Donald Trump in November 2016; this time blaming “newspaper subscriptions” for the electoral landslide.
Politico published an article Sunday titled, “Trump thrives in areas that lack traditional news outlets,” suggesting the President was able to “Swamp Clinton” in areas that had low subscription rates to local newspapers.
The data suggests those voters relied on national news outlets and social media for information instead of more traditional media outlets such as newspapers and local television reports.
“President Donald Trump’s attacks on the mainstream media may be rooted in statistical reality: An extensive review of subscription data and election results shows that Trump outperformed the previous Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, in counties with the lowest numbers of news subscribers, but didn’t do nearly as well in areas with heavier circulation,” writes the author.
“The results show a clear correlation between low subscription rates and Trump’s success in the 2016 election, both against Hillary Clinton and when compared to Romney in 2012,” adds the article.

“We’re hearing about a lot of Democratic candidates who are meeting with Hillary Clinton for advice… Do you think you’ll do the same?” asked The View’s Meghan McCain.
“I suspect not. She has not called me. Look, we have differences. Hillary has played a very important role in modern American politics,” said Sanders.
“I think every Democrat is going to come together… What’s most important is that Trump gets defeated. But Hillary and I have fundamental differences,” he added.
