When Hillary Clinton pointed out last week that the the 2016 election had been tainted by the interference of Russia and the FBI, a number of reporters at major news outlets began criticizing her for it. As I’ve previously explained, those reporters seem to be trying to distract from the fact that their own consistent misreporting on the election was what set the stage for that external interference to succeed (link). And now Hillary herself is firing back at the media over the matter.
Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election today by a more than twenty point margin, even after Russian hackers made a desperate last minute attempt at rigging the election in favor of Vladimir Putin’s puppet Marine Le Pen by hacking Marcon’s emails. After the blowout victory, Hillary Clinton took to Twitter and referred to it as a “Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world. Defeat to those interfering w/democracy.”
Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world.
Defeat to those interfering w/democracy. (But the media says I can't talk about that)

She added the zinger: “But the media says I can’t talk about that.”
This comes even as Hillary Clinton is on the verge of launching a new political group called Onward Together, aimed at fighting back against Donald Trump’s agenda (link). Meanwhile a number of major media pundits on the left and right are trying to convince her to be silent (link). But it’s increasingly clear that neither Hillary nor her voters will be silenced by anyone involved. Help fund Palmer Report
