Former Hillary Clinton adviser Phillippe Reines appeared on Fox’s Tucker Carlson Tonight on Wednesday — and the Clinton insider gave a clue as to whether the former secretary of State is planning on making a 2020 bid.
Breitbart reports that according to Reines, it’s “unlikely” that Clinton will run again. But, he says, “there might be a reason that she’d be the best person, not only to beat Donald Trump, but to govern after Donald Trump.”
“She won’t get the votes”
According to Reines, if Clinton thought she was the only opportunity to beat Trump, she would throw her hat into the ring in a second.
However, the former first lady is apparently fond of several Democratic candidates already, and even considered a couple of them for her own ticket in 2016.
Carlson said Wednesday that Clinton is possibly the only candidate who could draw moderate Democrats, but the party may have moved too far left for her. Reines agreed.
“Well, look, this is a huge if, but if she were to jump in, for whatever reason, and the party has moved someplace that she hasn’t, then she won’t get the votes,” Reines said.
Can the Dems win?
The landscape of the election has changed rather dramatically over the last 72 hours. One thing that will have a large impact is the development that the Justice Department’s investigation into the origins of the Trump–Russia probe has now turned into a criminal investigation.
The frontrunner in the field, Joe Biden, could end up being implicated in this.
Fox’s Geraldo Rivera recently admitted that the Russia hoax, which clearly undermined of Trump’s presidency, now appears to have been facilitated at the highest levels of our government — possibly even including Barack Obama.
And if Obama was involved, then it’s clear Joe Biden was involved.
Perhaps that is the reason Joe Biden is running for president. Maybe he is hoping to win the election to bury this investigation before it exposes just how involved his administration was in the “Deep State” coup to unseat Trump from his presidency.
Even if Biden is not indicted, however, even a single Democrat indictment on this matter will end any chance the Democrats have of winning in 2020. And that includes you, Hillary.
