FLASHBACK: When Democrats Were Cool With Calling Elections 'Stolen'

August 17, 2023

Hillary Clinton appeared on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow on Monday, where the two discussed how "bad actors" who say "every election is stolen ... wounds us as a democracy."

"I think, you know, the truth matters," Clinton said.

The failed presidential candidate's show of concern about the questioning of election outcomes marks a departure from her past remarks about Republican electoral victories.

A Washington Free Beacon review of the historical record reveals Clinton and other prominent Democrats have questioned the legitimacy of nearly every significant Republican win in the past two decades.

"If she had a fair election, she already would have won," Clinton said in 2018 after Democrat Stacey Abrams lost the Georgia gubernatorial race to Republican Brian Kemp.

After her 2016 loss to Donald Trump in the presidential election, Clinton repeatedly called Trump an "illegitimate president."

Democrats' questioning of elections goes as far back as the 2000 presidential election, which Clinton, along with Joe Biden and Terry McAuliffe, painted as stolen by the Supreme Court.
