Hillary Clinton Warns Republicans Plan to Steal Future Election

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has warned her supporters that Republicans have made a plan to steal the 2024 presidential election.

She said in a message to the progressive advocacy group Indivisible: “Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election, and they’re not making a secret of it.”

She pointed to the ongoing case, Moore v. Harper, which brings into dispute the GOP-controlled North Carolina General Assembly’s ability to regulate elections, including gerrymandered congressional maps which are believed to give Republicans a big advantage in the U.S. House.

North Carolina’s highest court struck down the appeal in February and blocked the state from using the map in the 2022 election.

On Oct. 18, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that they will be hearing the case in early December.

Clinton argued that there is a high possibility the ruling from the North Carolina Supreme Court could be reversed. In that case, it would likely enable the state’s legislature to shorten the early voting period, restrict mail-in balloting to certain counties and require voter ID, among other measures.

“The right-wing controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures … the power to overturn presidential elections,” she opined.

“If that happens, the 2024 presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote, or even by the anachronistic Electoral College, but by state legislatures,” she added, noting that many of them are under Republican control.

In the video posted by Indivisible, Clinton talked about her joint effort with the group to flip and protect nearly three dozen seats in 6 swing states to ensure a Democrat majority.

Election Denial

Defeated by former President Donald Trump in the 2016 race, the former secretary of state has hinted that the then election was “stolen from her.”

“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” Clinton said in 2019.

In a recent interview with CBS News, the former candidate confirmed that she wouldn’t be running for president in 2024 or ever again.

Besides the 2016 loss, Clinton was defeated in the Democrat Party’s 2008 primary by then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.
