Mook Won’t Say If Donald Trump Was Legitimately Elected President

The Justice Department Inspector General’s office announced announced it would review actions by FBI and DOJ officials in advance of 2016 election.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook went on MSNBC to discuss this revelation. For much of Mook’s interview, he continued to blame Russia and the FBI for Clinton’s loss rather than her campaign’s failings.

MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki asked Mook pointedly if he thought Donald Trump was legitimately elected president.

“Donald Trump won this election, and he is going to be sworn in as our next president,” Mook told Kornacki. “But, again, now that the election is over, we have to all look as Americans at what we can do to make our democracy as free and open and as fair as possible.”

Mook never once said that he thought Trump was legitimately elected president. The Clinton campaign spent weeks leading up to Election Day complaining that Trump would not accept the results if he lost. It now appears though that the Clinton campaign are the ones unable to accept the results of the election.
