During a speech delivered at the NY State Democratic Convention, two-time loser Hillary Clinton called the damaging Durham probe a “conspiracy theory.”
During her speech, Clinton accused Fox News and other right-leaning news outlets of lying about her in an attempt to spread disinformation regarding the Durham probe.
“We can’t get distracted by the latest culture war nonsense or a new right-wing lie on Fox or Facebook,” the former presidential candidate said. “By the way, they are after me again lately, in case you may have noticed.”
Ya think Hillary? What was your first clue? Maybe it was the renewed chants of “lock her up” that could be heard coming from a large crowd of protesters outside of the convention hall.
But that didn’t stop Clinton from prattling on, “It’s funny. The more trouble Trump gets into, the wilder the charges and conspiracy theories about me seem to get.”
She took particular aim at Fox. “Fox leads the charge with accusations against me, counting on their audience to fall for it again,” she continued.
Clinton went on to claim that Fox News was approaching legal liability for its reports on the Durham probe, saying, “And as an aside, they’re getting awfully close to actual malice in their attacks. But as I said, don’t get distracted.”
In her address, Clinton blasted the Republican Party as divisive, violent, and dangerous to US democracy.
“We are in uncharted territory. And make no mistake, our adversaries around the world are watching,” the former Secretary of State said. “Republicans are defending coup plotters. They’re curbing voting rights at precisely the moment when democracy needs champions.”
The twice-failed presidential candidate continued, “When we should be standing together against autocracies like Russia and China. January six, last year, was a gift to them because they know something we need to remember. America is only as strong as our unity, and our democracy allows us to be.”
Until now, Clinton campaign alumni have been silent following the filing from Durham, who claims that a technology executive accessed servers belonging to Trump Tower and the White House to compile dirt on former President Donald Trump related to Russia.
Clinton reacted to Durham’s latest filing, criticizing former President Trump and Fox News for “desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones.”
