Hillary: 'Very Dangerous' to Question Election Results - 'It's Doing Putin's Work'
Clinton says Russian leader's goal is to 'sow distrust'
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has warned elected officials from questioning the 2020 election results.
During an interview on “Morning Joe,” Clinton, who in the past claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin “helped elect Trump” in 2016, now says anyone daring to question the 2020 election results is doing the work of Putin.
Clinton claimed Putin's goal is to “sow distrust” and “sow divisiveness” in the United States.
“When you take an oath to serve the United States, you take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic,” Clinton stated.
“We never thought we had to worry about domestic enemies."
"We never thought we had to worry about people who didn’t believe in our democracy, in our Constitution, in our separation of powers, in our institutions.”
“And sadly, what we’ve seen over the last four years and particularly since our election in 2020 is that we have people in our own country who are doing Putin’s work."

"Now, whether they are, as we say, witting or unwitting, they are doing his work to sow distrust, to sow divisiveness, to give aid and comfort to those within our country who, for whatever reason, are being not only disruptive but very dangerous," she said.
"So, I think President Biden knows he has got to work on both fronts.”
In contrast to Clinton's recent remarks, in 2018, she accused Trump of conspiring with Putin to rig elections by attacking voting machines.
"The great mystery is why the president has not spoken up for our country."
"It was a very broad and a very successful cyberattack on our electoral system,” she said.
"The attack goes to the heart of our democracy."
"The great mystery is why the president has not spoken up for our country.”
Earlier this year, Clinton demanded to see Trump's phone records, claiming it could prove he is "a puppet" of Putin."
“I would love to see his phone records, to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” said Clinton at the time.
