Over a year and millions of taxpayer dollars wasted to find collusion between members of the Trump 2016 Presidential campaign team and the Russians has led NOWHERE. However, there is one candidate who bragged about colluding with foreign leaders during the presidential election cycle, and this confession has somehow been overlooked.
Who could this possibly be, you ask? Well, I’ll give you three chances to guess, but I’m sure you’ll only need one… the Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton; surprise, surprise.
Not only did Hillary Clinton talk to leaders of foreign governments about the United States’ presidential election, but she openly and proudly admitted it. To add even more to what she did, she not only bragged about doing it, but she also claimed it was a reason for people to vote for her… talk about being full of yourself. (snicker)
While trying to lock in the nomination against Sen. Bernie Sanders at a Democrat Town Hall in Columbus, Ohio on March 13, 2016, then-candidate Clinton, decided it was time to use her past experience and connections as a reason why she would be ready to step into the Oval Office as the next president.

During the Town Hall, a member of the audience named Amit Majmudar asked both candidates which one believed they had the best chance to defeat Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for president. He said he and his family were “a little uncomfortable here, and frankly, a little bit scared,” of the Republican candidate.
Of course, wanting to tout her vast experience in world politics, Clinton wasted no time tooting her own horn and her ongoing relationship with foreign powers as the main reason.
“One argument that I am uniquely qualified to bring, because of my service as Secretary of State is what his presidency would mean to our country and our standing in the world,” she boasted with a glimmer in her eyes. “I am already receiving messages from leaders. I’m having foreign leaders ask if they can endorse me to stop Donald Trump.”
Huh, she has foreign leaders wanting to endorse her to stop Donald Trump? What a strange statement. She then continued: “I mean, this is up to Americans, thank you very much, but I get what you’re saying.”
She then went on to brag about the Italian Prime Minister, who had already endorsed her publicly. But then her answer got more sinister.
It was then when CNN host Jake Tapper asked Clinton which foreign leaders had contacted her privately and offered to help her win the election. In her typical fashion, she told Tapper she would not answer that question. She simply responded by saying “We’re holding that in reserve, too.”
So, do you believe she was being factual about other world leaders hoping for her victory over Donald Trump? Or do you believe she was merely doing what she always does, being less than honest in her response?
If she actually had several foreign governments offering help for her victory in the 2016 presidential election was it not the right of the American voter to know?
Maybe it’s time for special counsel Robert Mueller to take a look at this case of collusion.? After all, it was freely admitted and is on video in her own words. However, I highly doubt she will face questions over this, but who knows, stranger things have happened.
