SOURCE: Hillary Clinton Not Ruling Out 2020 Run Until Mueller Report Released

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made national news on Monday when she seemed to emphatically declare she would not run for president in 2020, but according to a source close to Clinton, she might not be entirely closing the door on a third presidential campaign in 2020 just yet.

“I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe,” Clinton told Westchester, New York’s News 12 on Monday.

This statement by Clinton seemed to end the months-long speculation surrounding another presidential run by Clinton.

But less than 24 hours after Clinton made this delectation, the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman tweeted that she had spoken to a source close to Clinton that day, and it sounds like the former secretary of state is still leaving the door open to another presidential run.

“Spoke to someone close with Clinton in contact with her today,” Haberman tweeted Tuesday night. “They say she wasn’t trying to be emphatic and close the door on running when she spoke to a local reporter yesterday.”

Haberman added that the source told her, “[Clinton] was surprised by how definitively” her statement played among national press.

In another tweet, Haberman said that the source informed her that Clinton is “extremely unlikely to run, but that she remains bothered that she’s expected to close the door on it when, say, John Kerry isn’t.”

“She has told her team she is waiting at least to see the Mueller report,” Haberman continued.

In what might be a sign of her frustration with how her comments were perceived by the media, Clinton took a shot at President Trump on Twitter Tuesday evening.

“(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.” Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed,” Trump tweeted.

That tweet generated this response from Clinton a short while later:
