Hillary Clinton says he will not stop the legitimacy of the 2016 election if new information about Russians hampers deeper than it is currently known.
In an interview with NPR’s “Fresh Air”, the former Democratic presidential candidate admitted that this step would be unprecedented – and “I do not think we got a mechanism” for that.
“[Trump knew] they were trying to do anything to discredit me by email, apparently a clue … No doubt this has affected the choice: now we know more about how” Clinton said.
Terry Gross is pressed if he is “completely excluded from the challenge of the legitimacy of these elections if we find that Russian interference in elections is even deeper than we know now,” Clinton said. “No, I will not turn it off.”
Gross then asked what a way to fight the election, and Clinton admits he is not
“There are academics, academics, who have arguments that [the choices should be disputed], but I do not think they are firm,” he said.
“But people create these arguments,” he said. “I don’t think we got a mechanism.”
The month before the election in 2016, Clinton commented on Trump’s comment that he may not accept the election results as “terrible.”
