Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has been chastising Republican rival Donald Trump and his supporters for suggesting that the upcoming election would be “rigged” in Clinton’s favor.Clinton’s campaign has tried to dismiss those concerns as unfounded, but recently released audio from 2006 proved that the former secretary of state does, in fact, have some experience in rigging elections.
During her bid for re-election to the U.S. Senate, Clinton told the Jewish Press that our government should have “made sure that we did something to determine” who would win the Palestinian Legislative Council elections that took place on Jan. 25, 2006.
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” Clinton told editor Eli Chomsky.
“And if we were going to push for an election,” she added, “then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”
The election resulted in a resounding victory for Hamas over the U.S.-preferred Fatah — something Clinton, apparently, thought could have been avoided if we had somehow influenced the outcome (aka: “rigged” the election).
Chomsky said he recalled being taken aback that “anyone could support the idea — offered by a national political leader, no less — that the U.S. should be in the business of fixing foreign elections,” according to the Observer.
But for conservatives who have been warning against Clinton for years, it comes as little surprise that she would want to use her political power to influence the outcome of an election inappropriately.
Listen to the audio here:
This type of gross misuse of power has become Clinton’s modus operandi, as she has consistently used her position to suppress accusations against her and her husband, destroy evidence and circumvent any sort of accountability for her misconduct.
Trump was right — Clinton is exactly the type of candidate who would attempt to rig an election in her favor, and this audio from 2006 further proves her endorsement of doing just that if needed.
