With the democratic 2020 presidential field already bursting at the seams, it would stand to reckon that there are already a plethora of influences at work in the party. Hillary Clinton disagrees.
The failed 2016 presidential candidate and disgraced Secretary of State has been on the outside looking in at a race that is running further and further from her establishment ethos, refusing to rule out a run for the office herself in recent weeks.
But democrats may not be happy with the messages that Clinton brings to the table, however, as we’ve been enduring it for nearly three years now.
In a fiery op-ed published in the Washington Post, the former secretary of state and Democratic candidate for president charged Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report outlined: “a serious crime against the American people.”
“Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people,” the piece begins.
The former First Lady then went on to lament the plight of the democrats as they struggle with the question of impeachment.
“The debate about how to respond to Russia’s “sweeping and systematic” attack — and how to hold President Trump accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law — has been reduced to a false choice: immediate impeachment or nothing. History suggests there’s a better way to think about the choices ahead,” she wrote.
While Clinton may be correct in asserting that there shouldn’t be such a bleak and binary outlook on how the nation should proceed in the wake of the Mueller investigation, the rest of her dated schtick may very well become a hinderance to the party that has left her in the dust.
