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?
