Here’s How Hillary’s Campaign Team Dealt With Their Harsh Loss

Hillary Clinton’s campaign team continued to work behind the scenes, even after their harsh loss in the election.

Her staff continued to correspond with electors and try and sway their votes before the December 19th cutoff.

While her campaign staff “never officially” endorsed any of the electors, it was clear their motivations were manipulative at best.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:

Clinton staffers Jennifer Palmieri and Jake Sullivan never officially endorsed the movement, but email records obtained by Politico show that the aides discussed strategy with the electors by email, text, and phone conversations weeks in advance of the Dec. 19 vote of the Electoral College nationwide.

It was recently released that even some of the Democratic electoral voters were unclear what Hillary Clinton’s intentions were in the weeks preceding the election, or if she was even involved in the marketing to electors at all.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:

“They were too concerned about the appearance of ever being perceived as sore losers,” said an unnamed Democratic elector and Clinton ally. “All 230 of us [Democratic electors] had no idea what was going on — what do they want from us, what are they thinking, what’s possible, what’s not possible?”

While many from her campaign team were actively trying to sway electoral votes, other members of her team were trying to gain intel on possible moves by President-elect Donald Trump.

The Daily Caller also reports:

Eventually, Clinton advisor John Podesta joined a call for electors to gain access to intelligence briefings about Trump’s potential ties to Russia before the official vote.

 

“Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed,” Podesta said in an official statement.

Ultimately, any efforts to sway the votes were made in vain. The vast majority of electoral votes were made for Donald Trump, and only two Republican voters were successful in voting for another candidate due to strict Electoral College regulations.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s staff supported the “Hamilton Electors” and their potential coup behind the scenes, the same group that voted against her in the Electoral College, according to a Thursday report from Politico.

 

Even if the electors gained the 37 Republicans needed to overturn the election, the Hamilton Electors actually decided to vote against Clinton, meaning that even more Republicans would have to recant their votes in order to overcome the Democratic electors’ own actions.

Ultimately, their efforts proved futile, and Clinton’s team lost for a second time around, despite their potentially despicable efforts to change the election.

What are your thoughts? Should Clinton’s team be allowed to pursue electoral votes even after the election?

    No!! That is the sign of a sore loser. We have the Electoral College for a reason. It is a system of checks and balances. Hillary may have won the popular vote, but it was gotten illegally. When you look at the states she won, they were the large states – California, New York, etc. Donald Trump ran the rest of the map, winning most of the States, meaning most of the population. If you take the Electoral College away, you take away the vote from all of the people. When Jill Stein started the recount, with the blessing of Hillary, it was shown in Michigan, that when a vote came in for Hillary, THAT vote was scanned 6 times!!! The recount was stopped by the court, but there is an audit going on with the Election Process in the State of Michigan, since there were so many discrepancies found. If they had kept going, Hillary would have lost a couple of million votes alone in Michigan, and the count would have been a lot closer, since they would have found votes for Donald Trump. Obama also didn’t have the Military votes counted, which we all know which way they would have gone. He wanted his Candidate to win at any cost, which should be illegal!! That might have put him over the top, if not close to Hillary’s count. So we’ll never know now, and Donald Trump is now our President-Elect. This happened for a reason, and only God knows why, but a lot of people’s prayers have been answered!!
