Hillary Clinton zings Trump over new voter conspiracy theory

Source: Politico

Hillary Clinton swatted back at President Donald Trump’s attempts to spread another conspiracy related to her popular vote victory in the 2016 presidential election, this time claiming it was due to a search engine manipulation.

“Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election!" Trump wrote on Twitter Monday morning. "This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!”

While Trump did not cite the source of his claim, it came minutes after a segment on Fox Business surfacing month-old congressional testimony from behavioral psychologist Robert Epstein. In testimony last month to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Epstein claimed that based on his own research, “biased search results generated by Google’s search algorithm likely impacted undecided voters in a way that gave at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton.”

“The debunked study you’re referring to was based on 21 undecided voters. For context that’s about half the number of people associated with your campaign who have been indicted,” she replied in a tweet. Clinton was likely referring to the six operatives with ties to Trump or his campaign who were swept up in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, which ended earlier this year.

5. Sorry, but I don't believe it.

Aliens have better sense than to abduct Trump.
