In September 2006, when Hillary Clinton was campaigning for re-election to the Senate to represent New York, she was interviewed by Eli Chomsky and the editorial board of the Jewish Press. The interview was never before released, until now. What Hillary Clinton advocated for in this audio will leave some believing that Donald Trump may have a point with his claim that the election is rigged.
Although Democrats have accused Trump’s allegation of a rigged election as sour grapes as he began sinking in the polls, despite no claims by him of a rigged election during the primary when he was receiving a higher percentage of delegates than his popular vote percentage, Team Hillary can no longer claim that such a notion as a rigged election is ridiculous. This damning audio reveals that Hillary Clinton suggested that the United States should have worked to rig the election in Palestine in January 2006.
Speaking to the Jewish Press about the January 25, 2006, election for the second Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority), Clinton weighed in about the result, which was a resounding victory for Hamas (74 seats) over the U.S.-preferred Fatah (45 seats).
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”
According to Chomsky, he was surprised 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.”
So about the feigned indignation from Hillary Clinton and her sycophantic surrogates that the notion of an election being rigged is crazy talk….
