"This is a continuation of the cover-up": Killary Clinton offers new theory for Roger Stone commutation
Hillary Clinton said on MSNBC's "Reidout" Monday night that President Trump had commuted ex-adviser Roger Stone's sentence "to basically shut up Roger Stone so that Roger Stone would not spill any more beans about what actually happened and what Donald Trump actually knew."
"This is a continuation of the cover-up," Clinton declared. It was not immediately clear what Clinton was implying that Stone could have divulged to prosecutors; Special Counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors never alleged that Stone had engaged in a criminal conspiracy with any Russian actor.
Although Clinton didn't provide evidence to support her theory, she went on to assure viewers on the primetime show that Russia had successfully swung votes to Trump in 2016 -- and will try to do so again.
"It's very clear that Russia succeeded," Clinton said. "They believe that they were able to influence the minds and even votes of Americans, so why would they stop? They really want to pursue their agenda of dividing us."
Republicans reacted with a mixture of exasperation and mockery.
