Hillary Clinton lying is not a new concept and this certainly shouldn’t surprise you but it explains a lot.
According to Reince Priebus, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had an agreement that once the Associated Press called the election, the losing candidate would call the other 15 minutes after to concede.
Hillary Clinton did call to concede to Donald Trump on election night, but that even took forever.
Now Hillary Clinton is going back on her promise to agree to the results of the election.
Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff suggests Hillary Clinton is backing away from a deal worked out between the two presidential campaigns on how the loser would concede to the winner.
Reince Priebus tells “Fox News Sunday” that Clinton’s team “cut a deal” with Trump’s team specifying that once The Associated Press called the race in favor of one candidate, the other would call within 15 minutes to concede.
Priebus says that’s just what happened election night.
But now he’s questioning whether Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias is backing down from that deal by announcing Clinton will participate in a recount in Wisconsin and may do the same in Michigan and Pennsylvania. The push is being led by the Green Party’s Jill Stein.
AP’s director of media relations, Lauren Easton, says AP “calls races when it is clear that one candidate has prevailed over the other. We have no knowledge of what the candidates do with that information until there is a public claim of victory or a concession.”
This is exactly right because if Hillary Clinton actually meant the words during her concession speech than she would be letting the country heal and move on.
