During an interview with far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid on Monday evening, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton promoted a new conspiracy theory pertaining to Roger Stone and Russia.
Clinton tried explaining that the only reason President Donald Trump commuted Stone’s prison sentence was so that he would stay silent about the President’s collusion with Russia. The failed 2016 candidate seemed to forget that Robert Mueller found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
While speaking on MSNBC, Clinton claimed that President Trump commuted Stone’s prison sentence “to basically shut up Roger Stone so that Roger Stone would not spill any more beans about what actually happened and what Donald Trump actually knew.”
“This is a continuation of the cover-up,” Clinton claimed, implying that then-candidate Trump colluded with the Russian government and Mueller’s findings were inaccurate.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Despite Clinton’s belief that the Russians somehow stole the 2016 election, Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded, after a nearly two-year investigation, that there was no evidence of any active collaboration between Trump’s team and Russian officials, though it does appear that hackers, loosely affiliated with the Russian government, did try to sow discord on social media and some Russian officials may have offered help to the Trump campaign — requests the Trump campaign apparently ignored.
Stone, like Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn, was charged with lying under oath to investigating officials (Flynn to the FBI and Stone to Congress). Stone was also convicted on charges of witness tampering. Neither was charged with espionage or active subversion of an election.
Instead, it appears Clinton herself was responsible for her 2016 loss, ignoring key swing states like Wisconsin and Michigan, where internal campaign polling showed decisive Democrat victories, even as evidence pointed to a more questionable electoral result. Ultimately, Clinton lost both states, costing her the Electoral College, though she did win the popular vote.
Despite Mueller’s findings, Clinton is still convinced, without evidence, that President Trump colluded with Russia.
“It’s very clear that Russia succeeded,” Clinton told MSNBC. “They believe that they were able to influence the minds and even votes of Americans, so why would they stop? They really want to pursue their agenda of dividing us.”
