Hillary Clinton Warns Republicans Are Planning to ‘Literally Steal the Next Presidential Election’

by Just the News Staff


Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is claiming that the Republican party is engaged in a conspiracy plot to rig the 2024 presidential race, claiming that the GOP is “literally” planning to steal that election from voters.

The former secretary of state made the declaration last week in a video uploaded to social media. Addressing “Indivisibles,” or members of the far-left Indivisible political action movement, Clinton broached a topic she claimed was “keeping me up at night.”

“I know we’re all focused on the 2022 midterm elections, and they are incredibly important,” she said, “but we also have to look ahead, because you know what, our opponent certainly are.”

“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election and they’re not making a secret of it,” she said in the video, which she retweeted on her own Twitter timeline. “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 in her remarks was presumably referring to the pending Supreme Court cause Moore v. Harper, in which the Court will consider how much power state legislatures possess under the U.S. Constitution when it comes to regulating and determining U.S. elections.

In her address, Clinton warned that, if the court rules in favor of the plaintiffs, “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.“

Oral arguments in Moore are scheduled for early December.
