Skip to comments.Mueller Probe Could Set the Stage For Hillary’s 2020 Return: New at Reason

Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian influence on the 2016 presidential election presents a preview of Hillary Clinton's 2020 presidential campaign, suggests Ira Stoll. Blaming the outcome of the election on illegal Russian interference takes the blame off Clinton for losing. Clinton can already point out that she won the popular vote in 2016. If her electoral vote loss was the result of foreign interferencerather than, say, a poorly managed campaign, or a candidate who couldn't connect with out-of-work coal miners, or the wrong substantive messagethen perhaps a 2020 replay, without foreign interference, might yield a different outcome, some will suggest.
For a sense of how the Clinton 2020 reasoning and the Mueller investigation are related, keep an eye on the timing, writes Stoll. If the probe delivers results long enough before the 2020 primary season for Clinton to get a campaign in gear, watch out. If findings don't emerge until later, then they won't be much use to her.
That is exactly the word I was thinking of. They really are living in a fantasy world.
They can’t be that stupid. Must be some other reason they are saying it.
IF Mueller had a speck of honesty, Hillary would be in jail by 2020.
Yeah, return from the dead! ... maybe literally, the way I'm seeing things.
This is good. We WANT her on that wall. We NEED her on that wall.
She’s the Washington Generals of politics.
REASON is a left wing democrat leaning rag. Totally uncredible.
That could happen...unless,of course,by March 2020 it takes *four* men to help her up stairs and *a half dozen* to toss her in the back of a Chevy Suburban.
That is funny.
Oh, by all means! Pump that old cow carcass full of drugs and drag her back out for another run.
How about the fact that “Hillary the Overconfident” was an exceptionally lazy candidate who did not want to meet the voters or schedule public events? Her losses in Michigan and Wisconsin were largely down to her refusal to engage in retail politics. Hillary narrowly carried Minnesota, which is generally a Democratic lock.
Good Idea! Plugs Biden, Hillary!, and Chief Shrieking Harpy are sure winners.
Go for it dems.
She will get blown out in the Primaries and everyone knows it. Nobody ever liked her. Why she lost to Obama and almost lost to Bernie even with the “fix”
She will not allow herself to be embarrassed and won’t run at age 74. A year older than Reagan in 1984. She won’t be able to hide her health issues during a year long campaign.
She is toast
And Wolf is just liberal enough to say that.
