A little more than a year after former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tried to pin President Donald Trumpas a threat to democracy, Clinton has been caught red-handed doing the exact same thing she condemned.
In October 2016, Clinton tweeted this:
"When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people's minds about the legitimacy of our elections—then that undermines our democracy." —@POTUS

She lashed out at President Donald Trump for not giving a straightforward answer when asked if he would honor the legitimacy of the election if it didn’t go his way.
“I will keep you in suspense,” was his answer, according to The Washington Post.
Clinton’s response was strong:
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election.
That’s a direct threat to our democracy.

Now, around a year after the election, Clinton’s high horse evaporated right from under her. In an interview with Mother Jones, she made a starkly contradictory statement to her earlier claims.
“There are lots of questions about (the election’s) legitimacy,” she said.
Take a look at the interview with Mother Jones below:
Once again, we see Clinton’s complete abandonment of anything approaching principles in the pursuit of what she treasures most:
Furthering her political power.
