Another Clinton Aide Wants Electoral College To Go Rogue

Former spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign Karen Finney expressed hope on Monday that the Electoral College would send the presidential election to the House of Representatives.

“There are very serious questions about the role the Russian government, Russian state actors including Vladimir Putin himself may have played,” said Finney, who aligned herself with Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, who penned a Washington Post op-ed complaining about the 2016 election. Finney’s remarks, made during an interview on CNN’s New Day, advance the Democratic Party’s unsubstantiated narrative that Russian hacking swung the election to Donald Trump.

Finney, whose candidate suffered from historically high unfavorable numbers, claimed, “Some of [the electors] are really suggesting the thing to do is to send it Congress.”
