To this day, Hillary Clinton is still shocked that she got obliterated by Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
However, according to those close to her, Clinton was so furious after losing to Trump that she called on her staff to spread a lie that the Russians interfered in the election.
According to reports, the lie was spread just 24 hours after she lost to Trump.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’ book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campain,” argued that “Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian hacking, and Trump’s supposed support from ‘white nationalists,’” according to Breitbart.
Hours after her loss, Clinton was forced to make phone calls to friends explaining her loss to Republican nominee Donald Trump. These phone calls came from an exhausted, beaten down, and angry Clinton who did not want to accept any of the blame for her defeat and instead sought to point the finger in every direction but the mirror.
“’I’m angry,’ Hillary told her friend,” according to an excerpt from “Shattered” published by Red State. After two brutal campaigns against (Vermont Sen. Bernie) Sanders and Trump, Hillary now had to explain the failure to friends in a seemingly endless round of phone calls. That was taking a toll on her already weary and grief-stricken soul. But mostly, she was mad — mad that she’d lost and that the country would have to endure a Trump presidency.”
Not long after, her staffers came back to her with the Russia plan.
Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook,” wrote Breitbart. “‘She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,’ a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying.”
“That strategy had been set within 24 hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.”
Finally, Trump has been proven innocent. The constant lies about Trump are embarrassing for the Democrats and demonstrate why the country went Republican in 2016.
