Hillary Clinton is already denying the 2024 election.
Recently, the former first lady, U.S. senator, secretary of state, and twice-failed presidential candidate claimed that “Right-wing extremists” are planning to steal the 2024 presidential election. Clinton made the polarizing assertion in a video dedicated to “Indivisibles” that was published last week.
“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election,” Clinton said, urging her followers to help “crush the coup” she believes could happen in two years. “And they’re not making a secret of it.”
In 2000, Clinton infamously claimed that former President George W. Bush was “chosen” rather than elected over her husband’s former Vice President Al Gore. And after Hillary lost the 2016 election after falsely accusing former President Trump of collusion with the Russians, she delayed a whole day before delivering her concession address. She continued to make oblique references to the election’s unfairness.

“There was a widespread understanding that this election [in 2016] was not on the level,” Clinton told The Atlantic in October, 2020. “We still don’t know what really happened.”
“There’s just a lot that I think will be revealed. History will discover,” she said. “But you don’t win [the popular vote] by 3 million votes and have all this other shenanigans and stuff going on and not come away with an idea like, ‘Whoa, something’s not right here.’ That was a deep sense of unease.”
Clinton, who turns 75 this week, is said to be mulling a bid for president if President Biden does not seek reelection. Although Clinton did not drop any fresh hints on this front in the video, it appeared that she was setting the basis for increased distrust and divisiveness should the Republican nominee win the presidency.
“The Right-wing-controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures, yes, you heard me that correctly, state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections,” Clinton said. “Just think if that happens? The 2024 presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote or even by the anachronistic electoral college, but by state legislatures, many of them Republican controlled.”
Clinton promoted a new Political Action Committee named “Crush the Coup” and solicited donations from his supporters. The organization is attempting to secure Democratic majorities in specific state legislatures, which it believes might be crucial in thwarting conservative efforts to overturn election rules.
The three-year investigation into whether Trump collaborated with Russia, based on a Clinton campaign allegation, produced no proof. Despite the fact that Trump and many of his followers contested the results of the 2020 election, with some even rioting at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, Democrats and the media have deemed it the “most secure election ever.”
