(FiveNation.com)- Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is at it again, making outrageous claims about Republicans.
This time, she’s saying that any Republican Senator who doesn’t vote to convict former President Donald Trump is a “co-conspirator” of his. On Wednesday, she tweeted:
“If Senate Republicans fail to convict Donald Trump, it won’t be because the facts were with him or his lawyers mounted a competent defense. It will be because the jury includes his co-conspirators.”
In other words, if any Senator votes for acquittal, it can’t be because he or she believes that House impeachment managers didn’t present a strong enough case to convict Trump — or if Trump’s lawyers mounted a solid defense. Instead, they must have also been in on the incitement of insurrection at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6.
She didn’t stop there, though. A day later, she re-tweeted a Newsweek opinion article co-written by Massachusetts Representative Jim McGovern and Ellen Kurz, the founder of iVote. That article was titled “Congress Must Defeat the Continued Insurrection Against American Democracy.”
Clinton then added her own comments in the tweet, writing:
“The insurrection isn’t over. ‘In Republican-controlled state legislatures across the country, the assault on American democracy that began on January 6 rages on,’ write @ivotefund’s @EllenKurz and @RepMcGovern.”
That article makes reference to voter verification and identification practices in Arizona and Georgia. It even says that “Peach State Republicans are specifically targeting low-income Black and Latino communities.” They then say Congress has to act to ensure every vote is counted so Republicans can’t make “voting harder for eligible citizens they don’t think will vote red”
Then, the co-writers compared the riots on January 6 to voting laws and practices in conservative states, writing:
“Congress must act to ensure the cancerous tumor we found on January 6th does not metastasize across the country, state by state.”
Clinton is consistently putting forward a hypocritical message when it comes to Republicans. It seems that she is still a little salty from her embarrassing loss to Trump in the 2016 presidential election — one that she almost assuredly thought she’d win with no problem.
Now, though, she seems to be ignoring a rather obvious direct line to her own past. Remember that back in 1998, her husband, former President Bill Clinton, was impeached on two counts by the House of Representatives for his role in the sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky, who was an intern for the White House at the time.
Bill Clinton was impeached on two charges — obstruction of justice and lying under oath. It’s that second charge that will be very pertinent here.
Bill Clinton was ultimately acquitted on both of those charges in the Senate trial, although it was blatantly obvious to the entire country that he did, indeed, lie. He even lied directly to the American people during a press conference when he said:
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”
But, of course, we know that’s not true.
So, does his wife, Hillary, now also think that all those Senators who voted to acquit Bill were co-conspirators in that case? They must’ve known Bill was lying but just wanted to protect him then, huh?
After all, there’s no other explanation for why those Senators would’ve ever acquitted her husband — at least according to Hillary’s current words.
