Hillary Clinton Warns of ‘Voter Suppression’ in Coming 2020 Election
Clinton was at the film festival to promote her self focused four-part documentary
Twice failed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, has warned of voter suppression in the coming November election during this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Clinton said voter suppression is a concern "because once the Supreme Court gutted Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, they took away one of the most useful tools for holding states and local jurisdictions accountable for what they did around elections.”
“And I was the first candidate running for president on the Democratic side who faced both the gutting of the Voting Rights Act and Citizens United,” Clinton continued.
“So I saw firsthand the concerted effort to purge voters and suppress voters. That’s still going on.”
Clinton was at the film festival to promote her self focused four-part documentary set to debut on Hulu in March.
Desperately holding on to the fact she beat out Donald Trump in the popular vote, Clinton stated she still favors the abolition of the Electoral College.
“The person who gets the most votes should win. The Electoral College is an anachronism that foils the rights of the majority of Americans to choose our leaders.”
In 2018, Clinton demanded that the electoral college is abolished from presidential elections because Trump was elected, and not her.
Writing in a new Trump-bashing op-ed for the Atlantic, HRC proclaimed:
“You won’t be surprised to hear that I passionately believe it’s time to abolish the Electoral College."
Clinton also claimed that Trump’s chances to win reelection aren’t good, saying, “there’s a story now to be told.”

“Before he was a blank slate. He was a guy that people saw on their TVs. As you know, he was a reality TV star,” Clinton said.
“Now, I think there’s a record that he’s going to have to be held accountable for.”
Last September, Clinton sympathized with failed 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, claiming she too had her respective election stolen.
But in Clinton's case - ignore the electoral votes.
In Abrams' case, ignore the popular votes.
Speaking at the Defense of Democracy Conference at Georgetown University on Tuesday explained why she lost.
"You can run the best campaign. You can have the best plans. You can get the nomination. You can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election," Clinton said.
