Failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton resurrected the tired, dog-eared claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin has his eyes set on meddling in the upcoming 2024 elections.
Putin served as a convenient fall guy when Clinton lost to Donald Trump, just as Russia did when the deep state set its sights on the nation’s 45th president. And now, with new polling showing Trump well ahead of President Joe Biden in a head-to-head match-up, the woman who lied about a video prompting the terrorist attack in Benghazi is back to blaming Moscow while issuing an ominous warning about 2024.
“The Russians have proved themselves to be quite adept at interfering and if he has a chance, he’ll do it again,” Clinton said Sunday during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki.”
Host Jen Psaki set Clinton up nicely when she declared that Putin “has indeed interfered in our elections in the past.”
“It’s not something, as you experienced firsthand, is not something we talk about a lot,” Psaki continued. “Do you fear that that is something that could be happening for 2024, do you think we should be talking about it more?”
“I don’t think, despite all of the deniers, there is any doubt that he interfered in our election or that he has interfered in many ways in the internal affairs of other countries, funding political parties, funding political candidates, buying off government officials in different places,” Clinton replied. “That is his modus operandi in the sense that he hates democracy. He particularly hates the West, and he especially hates us.”

Faulting “apologists and enablers” in the U.S. for assisting, Clinton said Putin is adept at both dividing America and engaging in a “barbaric invasion of Ukraine,” this being part of his diabolical effort to seize more territory and “expand his reach.”
“Part of the reason he worked so hard against me is because he didn’t think that he wanted me in the White House,” she claimed.
“So, we are where we are and part of the challenge is to continue to explain to the American public that, you know, the kind of leader Putin is — this authoritarian dictator who literally kills his opposition, kills journalists, poisons people who disagree with him, invades other countries, interferes with our election — that is part of the alternative we have to reject this in this election,” she said.
Without mentioning Trump by name, Clinton brought it back to the 2024 election, “We have to reject authoritarianism; we have to reject a kind of creeping fascism almost of people who are really ready to turn over their thinking, their votes to wannabe dictators.”
Clinton is still smarting over a breach of Democratic National Committee emails allegedly perpetrated by Russian intelligence agency hackers — Moscow did engage in social media activity to influence the 2016 election but that effort is often overexaggerated to explain away Clinton losing to Trump, which was unthinkable at the time.
