Speculation is starting to grow that the repeatedly failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may try to run for office once again as she has a full slate of media appearances scheduled next week.
The former First Lady is making appearances on CBS Sunday Morning, Stephen Colbert, and The View.
The media blitz is being billed as a way to promote her and her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s new book, The Book of Gutsy Women — but comments she has been making recently have fueled theories that she may have ulterior motives.
In the interview with CBS Sunday Morning that is airing this weekend, Clinton said that things happened during 2016 campaign that will not happen again, implying that she may be planning to try again.
“Look, there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again,” Clinton said. “And I’m hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game.”
Clinton went on to call President Donald Trump a “illegitimate president” and accusing him of winning by using voter purging and suppression.
“I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used – from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories – he knows that there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”
Ironically, the Democratic National Committee was accused of using both of those tactics against Bernie Sanders supporters during the 2016 primaries in favor of Clinton.
Clinton also asserted that she supports impeachment and thinks that people are attempting to spread “falsehoods” about Joe Biden.
“My view is that, given the latest revelation, which is such a blatant effort to use his presidential position to advance his personal and political interests, there should be an impeachment inquiry opened,” Clinton said. “And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling.”
“The most outrageously false things were said about me in 2016, and unfortunately, enough people believed them. So, this is an effort to sow these falsehoods against Biden,” Clinton added.
