Crooked Hillary and Deep State Barry had a backup plan, in the off chance Donald Trump won the 2016 election. They also had a plan in the event Donald Trump won the election…but that’s another story.
Former President Obama had a plan to validate the 2016 election in the event that then-candidate Donald Trump lost and challenged the results.
Obama administration officials told New York magazine that a bipartisan plan was in place just in time for the election to certify the results and reveal the intelligence community’s claims that Russian interference supported Trump’s candidacy.
Such a measure was devised after Trump said the election was “rigged” and joked on the campaign trail that he wouldn’t accept the election results if he lost.
“I will totally accept the result of this great and historic presidential election,” he said. “If I win.”
The plan to validate the election involved former secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. Former presidents and congressional Republicans also participated in the plan, the outlet reported.
Ben Rhodes, a former top aide of Obama, told the magazine that the administration feared Trump wouldn’t accept the election result had Hillary Clinton won.
“It wasn’t a hypothetical,” he said. “Trump was already saying it on the campaign trail.”
Jen Psaki, communications director for Obama, minimized the plan’s significance, saying it just one of a number of “red-teaming” discussions about the potential fallout following the 2016 election, including pro-Trump protests and political division.
She said that Obama’s unpopularity among “a portion of the population” meant there was a need for a plan to validate the election.
“For them, just having him say the election was legitimate was not going to be enough,” she said. –Fox News
On Friday, after the news of Barack Obama’s secret deep state plan to validate Hillary’s election was revealed by the New York Magazine, Rush Limbaugh brilliantly summarized how it all went down.
“In October 2016, senior staff in the Obama White House discussed what they should do if Hillary Clinton won the November election and Donald Trump refused to accept the result as legitimate. They had cause to be worried. At that time, Trump had openly speculated that the election might be ‘rigged.’ During his final debate with Clinton on October 19, he said that his opponent ‘should never have been allowed to run’ and declined to answer the question of whether he would concede.
“‘I’ll keep you in suspense,’ the Republican nominee said. ‘It wasn’t a hypothetical,’ Ben Rhodes, Obama’s senior aide and speechwriter, told Intelligencer,” the New York Magazine column. “‘Trump was already saying it on the campaign trail.’” Ben Rhodes seems to have a problem with English. Trump was asked a hypothetical question: “What will you do if Hillary wins?” To which he gave an answer based on a hypothetical premise!
“The Obama White House plan, according to interviews with Rhodes and Jen Psaki, Obama’s communications director, called for congressional Republicans, former presidents, and former Cabinet-level officials including Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, to try and forestall a political crisis by validating the election results.” So, is this not funny looking back? They’re hell-bent in making sure that Trump concedes, despite being dead certain Hillary was gonna win!
And if Trump refused to concede, they were gonna call Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice and a bunch of ex-presidents, and they were going to get them to validate the election result, in addition to the official count state by state, in addition to the U.S. Congress certifying the election. That apparently wasn’t gonna be enough. They had to go get Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. “In the event that Trump tried to dispute a Clinton victory, they would affirm the result as well as the conclusions reached by the U.S. intelligence community that Russian interference in the election sought to favor Trump…”
So we are now learning… We’re not learning anything. We are having our suspicions confirmed. They hatched this Russia plot way before the election even took place, and no matter what happened, no matter what the outcome was, they’re gonna use it! If Trump lost, they were still gonna use it to say that, even though trump lost, he tried to steal this election from Hillary! And it was… That was gonna validate her election even more.
That was gonna make her an even bigger star, an even bigger hero. She overcame not just Trump, she overcame Putin, she overcame the oligarchs, she overcame Russia. That’s what their plan was, and then it got turned upside down. Hillary lost and she refused to concede! Remember, she refused to go away! They refused to acknowledge that Trump had won! It immediately became, “Trump didn’t win; the Russians stole it! And to this day, there’s no evidence for it.
But there’s Obama. This story in New York Magazine, they think they’re doing an attaboy here. They think they’re really praising Obama. They’re admitting that there was a conspiracy behind the scenes dealing with this election and trying to handle whatever outcome ended up happening to the benefit of Hillary Clinton. Somebody send this story over to Robert Mueller. He may not find out about this. Ha!
