Hillary Clinton: Trump is an "illegitimate president"

Hillary Clinton dismissed President Trump as an “illegitimate president” and suggested that “he knows” that he stole the 2016 presidential election in a CBS News interview to be aired Sunday.

The former secretary of state, who lost the presidency to Trump, offered a scathing assessment of the president, his 2016 win and the latest allegations that he tried to obtain incriminating information from a foreign government about Joe Biden, a possible 2020 opponent, according to excerpts released by CBS from a wide-ranging pretaped interview for its “Sunday Morning” show,

Clinton was asked whether it angers her that none of the current Democratic candidates invoke her on the campaign trail while Trump’s rally crowds still break out into “lock her up” chants.

“No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate president,” she said. “I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that — there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”

We all know that UkraineGate are a continuation of RussiaGate and that the 2016 election was stolen from HRC. But there's little we can do about that now, except follow the constitutional process and hold grand juries.

some words from Hillary. She has been quite way to long.

Donnie of Illegal will have several interesting Tweets about this. Watch him admit he had to cheat to win.

Alert authorities or stop illegal, unconstitutional interference. He knows he's illegal. He needs the roaring crowds who love him to give some relief to the nagging knowledge that he's a counterfeit president. No one should profit from a crime. Everything he's done as president should never have happened...the assaults on our environment, our judicial system, our national security, our humanitarianism. He knows he got it all but doesn't deserve it because he got it criminally.

What about that Alfa bank computer service in Trump tower? That antedates everything. He knows he sold his soul to the devil from the start.
