Hillary Clinton: Trump Trying to Overturn Results At 'Expense of Our Democracy'
Former secretary of state says Trump was 'not close
Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blasted President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn results claiming it was “not close."
Clinton concluded there was “no evidence of fraud,” while scolding the Republicans supporting Trump’s efforts to ensure election integrity.
“The election was not close. There was no evidence of fraud," Clinton said.
"The states have certified the results."
"Yet Trump continues to try to overturn the election at the expense of our democracy,” she said.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani noted in a November press conference that a sizeable number of the allegations are being reported by American citizens, both Democrats, and Republicans.
“That takes us to Michigan, where there was an honest Democrat who said they were cheating,” he told reporters.
“We’ll show you her affidavit, because I know you keep reporting, falsely, that we have no evidence.”
“That we have no specific acts of fraud,” he continued.
“That’s because the coverage of this has been almost as dishonest as the scheme itself.”
The news comes just days after attorneys general threw their support behind the lawsuit filed in the U.S. Supreme Court by Texas AG Ken Paxton against four battleground states.
The AGs in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Missouri backed Texas's lawsuit filed against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin over their handling of the 2020 election.
Texas AG Paxton filed the case in the SCOTUS this week, alleging that the four battleground states exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to make unconstitutional changes to the rules on mail-in voting.
