Hillary: 'Lots of Questions About' Legitimacy of Trump Victory

Citing voter suppression and Russian interference, Hillary Clinton maintains "there are lots of questions about" the legitimacy of President Donald Trump's election victory a year ago.

In an interview with left-wing Mother Jones, Clinton continued her "it wasn't my fault" tour by blaming Wisconsin Republicans and the Russians.

"I think (voter suppression) contributed to the outcome in a couple of places, most notably Wisconsin," Clinton told Mother Jones. "I think it had a dramatic impact on the outcome. But I also think Wisconsin was the target for a lot of weaponized false information.

"Republicans shrank the electorate in Wisconsin … and could have cost me the election there," said Clinton, who failed to mention she never visited the state during the presidential campaign.

In fact, Clinton has had more book tour stops in Michigan and Wisconsin (2) promoting her book "What Happened" than presidential campaign stops (0), despite losing both states to Bernie Sanders — Wisconsin by 13 points — in the Democratic primary.

Instead, Clinton said Russian propaganda was another factor that influenced the election result.

"I think it was one of the major contributors to the outcome. Propaganda works, advertising works," Clinton told MJ. "This was a very successful disinformation campaign."

Clinton said Republicans and Russians call into question the veracity of Trump's monumental and convincing victory over her.

"I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy. And we don't have a method for contesting that in our system," Clinton said.

"We're all at risk if we allow a foreign power to insinuate itself into our election and begin to affect how voters think," Clinton said.
