This is SHOCKING. She wanted to ensure a favorable outcome.
On Sept. 5, 2006, Hillary Clinton met with the editorial board of the Jewish Press. Her comments were recorded by Eli Chomsky, an editor and staff writer. Hillary was running for re-election as a U.S. Senator and was favored to win.
Chomsky used an old-school tape recorder for the interview.
The tape was never released and has only been heard by the small handful of Jewish Press staffers in the room. According to Chomsky, his old-school audiocassette is the only existent copy and no one has heard it since 2006, until today when he played it for the Observer.
The tape is 45 minutes and contains much that is no longer relevant, such as analysis of the re-election battle that Sen. Joe Lieberman was then facing in Connecticut. But a seemingly throwaway remark about elections in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority has taken on new relevance amid persistent accusations in the presidential campaign by Clinton’s Republican opponent Donald Trump that the current election is “rigged.”
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “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.”
Chomsky recalls being taken aback that “anyone could support the idea—offered by a national political leader, no less—that the U.S. should be in the business of fixing foreign elections.”
Hillary also raised a few eyebrows when she said that, in response to the capture of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit by Hamas militants, that ‘there’s a sense of like, one-upsmanship, and in these cultures of, you know, well, if they captured a soldier, we’ve got to capture a soldier.’
She also discusses diplomacy with Russia in a way that sounds quite different from what she has been saying this campaign:
“Do you think it’s worth talking to Syria—both from the U.S. point [of view] and Israel’s point [of view]?”
Clinton replied, “You know, I’m pretty much of the mind that I don’t see what it hurts to talk to people. As long as you’re not stupid and giving things away. I mean, we talked to the Soviet Union for 40 years. They invaded Hungary, they invaded Czechoslovakia, they persecuted the Jews, they invaded Afghanistan, they destabilized governments, they put missiles 90 miles from our shores, we never stopped talking to them,” an answer that reflects her mastery of the facts but also reflects a willingness to talk to Russia that sounds more like Trump 2016 than Clinton 2016.Read more: The Observer
Remember, according to the video, Robert Creamer claims that Hillary was directly responsible for wanting the ‘Donald Ducks’ following Trump and Pence around.
If she was willing to rig an election on foreign soil, why would she be unwilling to do that here in America?
