Neera Tanden, who was an adviser for Hillary Clinton’s first failed presidential campaign and now runs a liberal think tank in DC, floated the accusation that Trump is threatening to put Hillary in prison because of…wait for it…the recount challenge! Can liberals be any more stupid? First off, he’s been saying he would do this before the election happened. Well, she had an excuse for that. She said Trump lied on the campaign trail when he threatened to lock Hillary up.
You know what, just let her think what she wants. She’s not worth the effort.
From the Daily Mail:
A former Hillary Clinton staffer claimed Monday that Donald Trump is plotting to put his White House rival in jail because of her involvement in the Wisconsin recount.
Neera Tanden, an adviser to Clinton the first time she ran for president, said Trump was ‘lying’ on the campaign trail when he said he’d lock his general election opponent up.
‘Then, last week, he said he wasn’t going to prosecute her, and now he’s threatening to prosecute her if she takes part in a recount,’ Tanden, head of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress, asserted on MSNBC.
She also mocked the Trump camp for pushing back on the recount that Democrats, including Clinton’s lawyer, have said will not have the effect of removing Trump from office.
‘If people have confidence in the election, then I don’t know what the worry is,’ she said. ‘If the Trump campaign thinks these numbers are accurate, president-elect Trump thinks these things are accurate, then I don’t know why he’s so anxious about it, why he needs to attack Hillary.’
Why in the world would anyone believe Tanden? She heads up the Soros-funded, Polesta-connected Center for American Progress. She didn’t get where she is by telling the truth. Trump is upset about the recount and insulted. I can’t say I blame him. He released a series of angry tweets on it, but he didn’t threaten Clinton. I think they are floating this to stir the pot and to bait Trump into an angry response.
Although Trump himself won’t go after Clinton, the door was left open for the DOJ to go after her. Senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said on CNN that Trump wouldn’t rule out an investigation in his talk with the Times while stating, “It’s just not his focus right now. I think he’s being quite magnanimous, and at the same time, he is not undercutting at all the authority and the autonomy of the Department of Justice, of the FBI, of the House committees,” Conway stated. One way or another, whether on US soil, abroad or both, Clinton is going to have legal woes over her corruption. No one deserves it more.
