Hillary Clinton: Trump, Stone Part of Ongoing 'Cover-up'

By    |   Tuesday, 21 July 2020 08:39 AM

Hillary Clinton is accusing President Donald Trump and his former campaign adviser Roger Stone of being part of a continued "cover-up" involving Russia.

During a Monday night interview with MSNBC, Clinton — who lost to Trump in the 2016 election — said Trump's recent commutation of Stone's sentence is a "continuation of the cover-up."

"I think it's pretty clear that Stone threatened him. He probably threatened him privately, but he also threatened him publicly about what he would say if he had to go to prison. This is a continuation of the cover-up," Clinton said.

"It's an ongoing cover-up that Trump and Stone are major participants in. They try to prevent us from knowing all of the details about what they actually did in 2016."

She added that Russia "succeeded" four years ago and said its efforts are ongoing.

"It's very clear that Russia succeeded," she said. "They believe that they were able to influence the minds and even votes of Americans, so why would they stop? They really want to pursue their agenda of dividing us."

Stone was found guilty of lying to investigators and witness tampering as part of social counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Days before he was slated to report to prison for the start of his 40-month stint behind bars, Trump commuted his sentence.

Clinton said the two worked together to use Russia's help during the 2016 election.

"Some of it was very public. Asking Russia in public to interfere in an American election, but some of it was clandestine, behind the scenes. Sending messages, the kinds of things that we know about, and I think much more," she said.

"What he did was to use the awesome power of commutation as part of the pardon power of the president to basically shut up Roger Stone so that Roger Stone would not spill any more beans about what actually happened and how much Donald Trump actually knew."
