The US would never propose rigging the elections of another state would it?
Especially after all the
lies concern thrown around by the Hillary Clinton camp about Russia possibly interfering in the US elections to get their Manchurian candidate, Donald Trump, into office.
With the slow drip of Wikileaks Podesta emails exposing the criminality of the Clinton mafia on a daily basis, and yesterday’s FBI announcement that it is looking into more emails in connection with Clinton’s past email investigation, a new audio recording released by the Observer, has Hillary Clinton openly proposing that the United States do what is necessary to make sure the desired party wins the Palestinian elections…or in more simple terms, Hillary Clinton is proposing to rig the Palestinian elections.
Will Hillary blame the Russians for this latest audio leak? Knowing Clinton’s disregard for accountability, we would not put a “Russian hacker” excuse past the Democratic Presidential nominee.
Speaking to the Jewish Press about the January 25, 2006, election for the second Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority), Clinton weighed in about the result, which was a resounding victory for Hamas (74 seats) over the U.S.-preferred Fatah (45 seats).
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”
Editor and staff writer for the Jewish Press, Eli Chomsky, recalls being taken aback that “anyone could support the idea—offered by a national political leader, no less—that the U.S. should be in the business of fixing foreign elections.”
Here is the audio of Clinton’s election rigging proposition…
More from the Observer…
On September 5, 2006, Eli Chomsky was an editor and staff writer for the Jewish Press, and Hillary Clinton was running for a shoo-in re-election as a U.S. senator. Her trip making the rounds of editorial boards brought her to Brooklyn to meet the editorial board of the Jewish Press.
The tape was never released and has only been heard by the small handful of Jewish Press staffers in the room. According to Chomsky, his old-school audiocassette is the only existent copy and no one has heard it since 2006, until today when he played it for the Observer.
The tape is 45 minutes and contains much that is no longer relevant, such as analysis of the re-election battle that Sen. Joe Lieberman was then facing in Connecticut. But a seemingly throwaway remark about elections in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority has taken on new relevance amid persistent accusations in the presidential campaign by Clinton’s Republican opponent Donald Trump that the current election is “rigged.”
