After Criticizing Trump On Election Results, Clinton Continues to Question Legitimacy

Hillary Clinton tweeted her support [1] for accepting legitimate democratic election results on Oct. 24, 2016, and criticized then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying that Trump’s lack of endorsement on respecting election results was a “direct threat to our democracy”:

But since her loss a year ago, Clinton has questioned election results and blamed Russia and the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russian government.

In a September 2017 interview with NPR [3], she said, “I wouldn’t rule it out” that the election was illegitimate.

This past week, she used the same response [4] in an interview with Mother Jones [5], telling the interviewer that “there are lots of questions about its legitimacy” and blamed voting irregularities for her losing Wisconsin.
