Hillary Clinton is at it again. In a sit-down interview Sunday with former Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki, the former First Lady warned that Russia’s Vladimir Putin could again try to influence the U.S. election in 2024, and tied Putin to “a kind of creeping fascism, almost, of people [in the U.S.] who are really ready to turn over their thinking, their votes, to wannabe dictators.”
The “dictator” reference was an apparent shot at Donald Trump, as Clinton disdainfully referenced Russian-election-interference “deniers” in agreeing with MSNBC host Psaki that Democrats need to start talking about Kremlin subversion of America’s next presidential election.
One conservative Republican, “Proud Elephant,” responded on X: “She’s really STILL pushing this lie?!”

The following exchange is excerpted from the interview:
Psaki: “Vladimir Putin … has intervened in our election in the past, as you experienced firsthand. It’s not something we talk about a lot. Do you fear that that is something that could be happening for 2024, and do you think we should be talking about it more?
Clinton: Clinton: “Well, I think we should be talking about it more because I don’t think – despite all the deniers – there’s any doubt he [Putin] interfered in our election, or that he has interfered in many ways in the internal affairs in other countries. … So that is his opus .. – his opus operandi [sic], in the sense that he hates democracy, he particularly hates the West, and he especially hates us….”

Clinton went on to say that Putin is good at “damaging and dividing us internally,” in part because he “has a lot of apologists and enablers in our own country.” She described Putin’s despotic behavior including his “barbaric invasion of Ukraine” and said, “Part of the reason he worked so hard against me is because he didn’t think that he wanted me in the White House.”
Clinton drew a not-so-subtle comparison between Putin’s authoritarianism and Trump and his MAGA supporters, saying that Putin’s brand of brutal tyranny “is part of the alternative we have to reject in this [America’s upcoming] election.”
“We have to reject authoritarianism. We have to reject a kind of creeping fascism, almost, of people who are really ready to turn over their thinking, their votes, to wannabe dictators. And we can’t allow that to proceed.”
“And I fear that the Russians have proved themselves quite adept at interfering and if he [Putin] has a chance, he’ll do it again,” she said.
Jen Psaki asked Hillary Clinton to please repeat that Putin stole the 2016 election from her, but I had to laugh when she denounced Putin's "opus operandi." It's "modus," oh learned one. pic.twitter.com/ToHUvJrP9v

‘No there, there’ in Biden impeachment probe?
Ironically, in another part of the MSNBC interview (see video below), Clinton accuses Trump of engaging in “what psychologists call projection” – precisely what so many on the Right and have said she practices with her wild-yet-false charges against Trump, e.g., that he was effectively a Russian stooge.
In other words, Clinton in the eyes of her critics has engaged in projection by charging Trump with projecting.
Regarding the GOP’s impeachment inquiry against Biden, Clinton said, “There’s no there, there. In fact, it seems they know there’s no there, there. And sadly the Speaker of the House is too weak to stand up against … the most rabid bloc of his members, who don’t care what the truth or the facts are. They just want to … grandstand and cause President Biden problems.”
At minimum, this statement demonstrates chutzpah and a lack of self-awareness by Clinton as it has now been revealed by two federal investigations that she was the force behind the infamous, scurrilous “Steele dossier” that was filled with now-proven falsehoods against Donald Trump. Moreover, the lies reportedly were created by a Russian-born FBI paid informant, Igor Danchenko, who spread political gossip he heard at bars as anti-Trump “intelligence.”
As Wall Street Journal columnist Holman Jenkins, Jr., put it in May, “unless you’re a coward like 90% of the media and 100% of the foreign-policy class in Washington, you realize now the furor that consumed the country for three years did not originate with Donald Trump or even Russia, but with a Clinton-sponsored hoax.”
The Steele “dossier,” eagerly regurgitated by left-biased anti-Trump media, gave birth to what Republicans now refer to as the “Russia hoax” investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which saddled the Trump administration for three years.

As USA Today columnist Ingrid Jacques wrote in May, special counsel investigating the “Russia hoax” John Durham “also called out the role of the (now-discredited) Steele dossier, the opposition research gathered for the Hillary Clinton campaign that was in turn given to the FBI. Durham said the dossier was ‘unvetted and unverified,’ yet was used as justification for surveillance.”
“Indeed, based on the evidence gathered in multiple exhaustive and costly federal investigations of these matters, including the instant investigation, neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” the Durham report stated.
Clinton also accused the Republicans of not wanting to solve the border crisis but instead prolonging it as a “political problem” to rally their base.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.
As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”
Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?
Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.
The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
