Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton questioned the legitimacy of the 2016 election in a new interview with Mother Jones.
“I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said. “And we don’t have a method for contesting that in our system.”
“That’s why I’ve long advocated for an independent commission to get to the bottom of what happened,” she said.
“I support our democracy. And sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. But I certainly will support the outcome of this election,” Clinton said.
In September, Clinton said she would not rule out challenging the legitimacy of the election in an interview with NPR.
“Would you completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?” NPR’s Terry Gross asked Clinton.
“No. I would not. I would say—” Clinton began.
“You’re not going to rule it out,” Gross interjected.
“No, I wouldn’t rule that out,” Clinton said.
