Hillary Clinton Claims 'Right-Wing Extremists Already Planning To Literally Steal’ 2024 Election

'MAGA Has A Plan To Steal The Election In 2024. We Have To Stop Them, Today' Reads The PAC's Homepage

On Monday, former Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed “right-wing extremists” were already planning to steal the next Presidential election.

In conjunction with Political Action Committee (PAC) Indivisible, Clinton suggested the 2024 Presidential election is in danger.

“I’m here to highlight something,” the former Secretary of State chuckled, “that is keeping me up at night.”

Clinton highlighted concerns surrounding the upcoming midterm elections in November by warning voters to stay vigilant of future elections.

“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next Presidential election,” she said.

“And they’re not making a secret of it. The right wing Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures … the power to overturn Presidential elections,” Clinton continued. “Just think: if that happens, the 2024 Presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote or even that anachronistic electoral college but by state legislatures, many of them Republican controlled.”

The former Presidential candidate announced Indivisible’s campaign “Crush the Coup” is designed to “defend democracy” in the 2024 Presidential election requesting voters donate to the initiative along with presumably Democratic-leaning state legislature candidates.

MAGA has a plan to steal the election in 2024,” reads the website’s homepage. “We have to stop them today.”

The campaign highlights Democratic-leaning races that are held by Republican legislatures in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. All but North Carolina were highly-contested states in the 2020 Presidential election and faced controversy over delayed vote counting.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court heard Moore v. Harper regarding alleged gerrymandering from North Carolina state legislature, which argues whether a congressional district plan drawn by a state legislature can be subject to review and revision by the state’s judiciary under state law. The argument cites Article 1 Section 4 of the United States Constitution, which states, “the times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations, except as to the places of choosing Senators.”

Oral arguments for Moore v. Harper are scheduled for Dec. 7 with a decision expected sometime next year.

“In truth, it’s really not even a gerrymandering case or a voting rights case,” said Allison Riggs, the co-executive director of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, who is one of the attorneys on the case, per Politico. “It’s about checks and balances and federalism.”

“Everyone’s going to be waiting to see where the court goes, and then they’ll have to reevaluate the maps that they enacted — legislative and congressional — to see if they’re in compliance,” said Adam Kincaid, the executive director of the National Republican Redistricting Trust.
