Here we have yet another instance of Hillary Clinton‘s past coming back to haunt her. Flashback to October 28, 2016, when the New York Observer, owned by former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, leaked a 2006 audio clip of then U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton.
In the clip, Clinton can be heard proposing rigging a foreign election to get the result she wanted. The media at that time chose not to report on this damaging information about presidential candidate Clinton for fear of damaging her chances in the upcoming election.
However, The Gateway Pundit was one of the few news outlets who did cover this explosive story and now due to the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict it has resurfaced again on various news platforms.
The audio revealed Senator Clinton expressing regret over the US’s encouragement for an election which eventually saw Hamas clinching a victory over the preferred Fatah party during January 25th 2006 elections for Palestinian Legislative Council. In addition, she went on to suggest that had they interfered with these elections it would have ensured a more favorable outcome for them – something which shocked Noam Chomsky as it came from such an important national leader implying tolerance towards meddling in foreign elections.
Specifically, she said: “I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake…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” – let that sink in.
This shocking sentiment coming from someone running for president is damning and explains why major news networks chose not to cover this story back when it first emerged…otherwise it could have been extremely detrimental to then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s chances at winning office due what this statement implies about her judgement and character when dealing with foreign policy issues.
It raises questions about whether or not similar tactics were employed during her own campaign and whether or not they were successful as well as shedding light on exactly how far certain candidates are willing go secure power – even if it means compromising their integrity by manipulating another country’s democratic process.
