It’s Okay When We Do It: Hillary Wants China to Steal Trump’s Tax Returns

Hillary Clinton China Trump Tax Returns

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attempted to mock President Donald J. Trump by making the same joke he did about the Russians finding her deleted emails.

While on the campaign trail, President Trump famously joked that he hoped Russia could find Clinton’s purged emails. Many Republicans believed she broke the law when she deleted thousands of emails before they could be reviewed by the government, and President Trump seized on this issue during the 2016 campaign.

“If [the hacking] is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason, because it shows how little respect they have for our country when they would hack into a major party and get everything,” said the president. “I will tell you this: Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you are able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Many Democrats have attempted to reframe this obvious joke as the mythical “Russian collusion” they have been desperately looking for since President Trump’s election, and now Clinton appears to have joined in on the fantasy, calling for China to steal President Trump’s tax returns.

“Why don’t we ask China to back us?” asked Clinton, rhetorically. “Hey China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns. I’m sure the media would richly reward you.”

“Let’s have a great power contest, and let’s get the Chinese in on the side of somebody else.”

Clinton also made the baseless claim that the Russians are attempting to aid Republicans, when the Mueller report revealed that they not only also supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, they also supported Black Lives Matter, the LGBT community, and Islam.

Of course, the irony becomes palpable when considering the reports that former vice president turned Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son completed a deal worth $1.5 billion with China.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
