Hillary Clinton claimed accusations her campaign spied on Donald Trump are a ‘conspiracy’ tied to his mounting legal issues and slammed Republicans for backing ‘coup plotters’ and pushing the ‘big lie’ in her major comeback speech in New York on Thursday.
‘We can’t get distracted, whether it’s by the latest culture war nonsense, or some new right wing lie on Fox or Facebook – by the way they’ve been coming after me again lately in case you might have noticed,’ Clinton told the New York Democratic Convention in response to special counsel John Durham’s filing over on Friday.
‘It’s funny, the more trouble Trump gets into the wilder the charges and conspiracies about me seem to get,’ Clinton said.
‘So now his accountants have fired him.And investigations draw closer to him. And on the right the noise machine gets turned up,’ she added.
‘Fox leads the charge with accusations against me counting on audience to fall for it again,’ Clinton continued, as she introduced Gov.Kathy Hochul after she won the Democratic nomination for the gubernatorial race.
Clinton spoke as a New York federal judge ruled that Trump and his children Don Jr. and Ivanka must testify under oath in the investigation into whether his family business inflated property prices.
She didn’t mention if she has any intentions to run for president again in 2024 despite whirlwind speculation, but said the United States was ‘dangerously divided’.
‘I know many of us have thought that defeating Trump would start to heal our divisions – I certainly did – that maybe just maybe the madness would break,’ she said to a largely maskless crowd of Democratic electors.
On Friday, a legal filing by Durham accused Clinton’s campaign paid a tech firm to ‘mine data’ at Trump Tower and later White House servers to make a Trump-Russia link.Clinton has brushed off the charges broadly as a ‘fake scandal.’
