Report: Clinton Undermining Trump’s Legitimacy to ‘Keep Her Options Open for 2020’

Vanquished Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is working to undermine the legitimacy of the election of her rival Republican Donald Trump to the presidency in order to ‘keep her options open for 2020’ according to Ron Fournier. Fournier cited sources close to Clinton for the report.


Clinton announced over the weekend through her campaign lawyer Marc E. Elias that she would join the Wisconsin recount effort by failed Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein. Elias said Clinton would follow Stein’s lead should Stein request recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Elias also stated that the Clinton campaign had been quietly working behind the scenes since the day after the election to find a way to take back the presidency from Trump.

Fournier has covered the Clintons for decades going back to when Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas. Fournier reported in a series of tweets Monday morning on Clinton’s scheming.

“Raising doubts about legitimacy of election, even w/out overturning result, is part of Clinton’s plans to keep her options open for 2020”

“@matthewjdowd people close to her disagree. Perhaps they’re projecting.”

“@that76spirit @matthewjdowd sources close to her. You read it here first.”

“@easyout reporting”

“@peterogburn don’t be afraid of reporting, Peter. Make some calls. You’ll hear the same from her confidants. That is, if you have sources.”

Since her stunning defeat by Trump on November 8, Clinton has maintained a facade of a gracious loser while in actuality she has been plotting since the day after the election to wrest the presidency from Trump.
