Hillary Clinton chimed in on the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, claiming that if the former president is acquitted it’ll be due to his “co-conspirators” serving as the jury.
Clinton, who lost the presidential election in stunning fashion to Trump in 2016, made a statement in the form of a tweet on Wednesday.
It has yet to be labeled with any form of fact-checking information by the social media outlet.
“If Senate Republicans fail to convict Donald Trump, it won’t be because the facts were with him or his lawyers mounted a competent defense,” Clinton wrote without evidence.
“It will be because the jury includes his co-conspirators.”
Democrats have argued that any Republican lawmaker who contested election results as they did in both 2017 and 2005 should be expelled from Congress for having allegedly played a role in the Capitol riots.

Hillary Clinton Accuses GOP Senators of Being Co-Conspirators to ‘Insurrection’
It takes next-level chutzpah to have denied Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 for four straight years then turn around and accuse Republicans who contested the 2020 election results of being co-conspirators to an insurrection.
Yet, here we are.
It was, after all, Clinton’s campaign that hired the Washington-based opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump. Which, in turn, hired retired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Trump and Russia.
She was undermining Trump even before he took office.
Hillary Clinton, whose own husband was part of an impeachment, proceeded to accuse Trump of being an “illegitimate president” and suggested “he knows” that he stole the 2016 presidential election.
Considering all of the leftist-fueled riots that took place during Trump’s tenure, one could reasonably assume – based on their own rules – her rhetoric had inspired violence, making her a co-conspirator.

Trump Will Be Acquitted – Again
Accusing Republican Senators of being co-conspirators in the impeachment trial isn’t Hillary Clinton’s first foray into wild conspiracy theories regarding the Capitol riots.
The former First Lady joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in accusing Trump of colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Capitol riots.
“I would love to see his phone records to see if he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton told the House Speaker.
Again, no social media outlets banned her for making false accusations.
.@SpeakerPelosi and I agree:
Congress needs to establish an investigative body like the 9/11 Commission to determine Trump’s ties to Putin so we can repair the damage to our national security and prevent a puppet from occupying the presidency ever again. pic.twitter.com/yR7LQmXm5Z

Despite the fact that six Republicans joined Democrats in voting to affirm that the impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump is constitutional, the effort is expected to fail.
They would need 17 Republicans to crossover and convict Trump. There is little chance that many GOP lawmakers would be duped by emotional arguments and doctored videos as opposed to reality.
Trump will more than likely be acquitted.
