Hillary Clinton Could Threaten Trump's Legitimacy

Clinton Won't Rule Out Challenging Election Validity

Clinton Won't Rule Out Challenging Election Validity

Clinton said she would have reacted differently than Trump did and established an "independent commission with subpoena power" to probe it.

NPR's Terry Gross asked if Clinton would challenge the election results should more evidence turns up that Russian interference had deeper impact than is now known.

In a wide-ranging September interview with Terry Gross of NPR's "Fresh Air", Clinton discussed her new memoir, "What Happened", her experience as the first woman ever nominated by a major party to run for president and her thoughts and plans for the future of the nation with Trump steering it.

I've paid close attention to what Clinton's been saying since she lost the election and I have never heard her broach the possibility of a formal challenge of the results.

High up on the long, long, long list of ways to get under the president's skin are two particular items: suggesting that his election last November was anything less than a historic triumph, and being Hillary Clinton.

"No. I would not", Clinton said.

"There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that [the election should be challenged], but I don't think they're on strong ground".

Clinton: "No, I wouldn't rule it out". "Right now Bob Mueller and several congressional committees are investigating to what extent the Russians impacted our election and who exactly helped them do so".

There is a difference between questioning the legitimacy of an election and contesting it.

So no, Clinton is not going to try to overturn the election.

If we define "legitimacy" for a government as requiring the consent of the governed (and we do), there is no good reason for her to not do just what she is doing. "We have no such provision in our country".

In her book, Clinton also wrote that once the election was over, she felt she needed to help the transition to Trump's presidency go smoothly. "And I think that's an anachronism". We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.
