WASHINGTON (TND) — Hillary Clinton is raising concerns "right-wing extremists" could "steal" the presidential election in 2024.
A video of the former secretary of state shared on social media shows her warning voters of a potential change in how states conduct their elections.
I know we’re all focused on the 2022 midterm elections, and they are incredibly important, but we also have to look ahead because -- you know what -- our opponents certainly are. Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election,” Clinton said in the video posted by progressive nonprofit organization Indivisible.
Clinton was speaking about the Supreme Court’s upcoming case, Moore v. Harper, looking at how state courts interpret state election laws.
The question is whether to adopt the independent state legislature theory, which allows state legislative bodies to overrule state courts in various election matters.
The right-wing controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections,” declared Clinton. “Just think, if that happens the 2024 presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote, or even by the anachronistic electoral college, but by state legislatures, many of them Republican-controlled.”
Clinton asked her supporters to donate to Indivisible’s “Crush the Coup” campaign, which seeks to elect progressive lawmakers in 29 races across six states that the nonprofit deems “critical races” to win in order to stop a potential “coup.”
Clinton has repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of the 2016 election, and appears to be gearing up to do the same in 2024.
The former first lady even called Donald Trump an “illegitimate president,” according to The Washington Post.
No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate president,” Clinton said, according to The Post. “I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that — there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”
