Hillary Clinton Admits She May Still Question Legitimacy of 2016 Election

Clinton said that if it is revealed that Russian interference had a greater impact on the election than previously thought, she would question the legitimacy of the election.

Hillary Clinton said that she would not rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election if it turns out that Russian interference in the election was deeper than previously thought during an interview on Monday.

NPR’s Terry Gross asked Clinton what she would do in that scenario.

“Well I don’t know if there is any legal, Constitutional way to [challenge the election results],” Clinton responded. “But, I don’t know that in our system we have any means of doing that. But, I just wanted to add to the point you made. There’s no doubt Russia influenced the election. We now know more about how they did that.”

Clinton explained how if she were elected president, she would have set up an independent commission to investigate Russian interference.

Gross followed up by asking Clinton again if she would rule out questioning the legitimacy of the election, if it turned out that Russian interference in the election was deeper than previously thought.

“No, I would not,” Clinton responded, admitting that there is no Constitutional tool for her to use to challenge the legitimacy of the election result.

Clinton concluded by saying, however, that she believed the Electoral College should be abolished.
