Can Hillary drop it already?
In an upcoming interview scheduled for Sunday, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton expressed skepticism regarding former President Trump’s statement that he is unlikely to pardon himself. Clinton made her doubts clear during a conversation with MSNBC’s Jen Psaki, stating, “I find it difficult to place trust in anything he says. Why would I suddenly believe him on this matter?”
According to The Hill, during a separate interview with NBC’s Kristen Welker, Trump indicated that he is not inclined to pardon himself in the event of a conviction and a potential return to the presidency. He remarked, “I had the option to pardon myself. You know what? I had that opportunity when I left,” in an exclusive interview with “Meet the Press.”
Clinton, who lost the 2016 election to Trump, expressed her lack of confidence in his assertions, suggesting that he might be engaging in what psychologists refer to as projection.
She commented, “Whenever [Trump] accuses others of certain actions, it often turns out that he himself is either engaged in those actions or has already done so. Similarly, when he denies thinking about or committing something, it’s highly likely that he is, in fact, considering it or has already acted upon it.”
Clinton and Psaki discussed a range of topics during their interview, including the 2024 presidential election, Trump’s potential legal issues, and the activities of the Clinton Global Initiative. The interview is scheduled to be broadcast on Sunday at 12 p.m.
