Hillary Clinton may have cracked open the door for yet another run for president. In an interview airing Sunday on CBS Sunday Morning, she said that things happened during her ill-fated 2016 campaign that won’t happen again.
“Look, there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again,” she told interviewer Jane Pauley. “And I’m hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game.”
Clinton went on to claim Donald Trump was an “illegitimate president.”
“I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used – from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories – he knows that there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”
She also predicted Trump won’t be elected to a second term.

Clinton’s interview, alongside daughter Chelsea, was held to promote their new Simon & Schuster title, The Book of Gutsy Women, out next week. The book features portraits of women like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Mary Ritter Beard, Harriet Tubman and others.
As one might expect, Clinton supports the movement to impeach Trump.
“My view is that, given the latest revelation, which is such a blatant effort to use his presidential position to advance his personal and political interests, there should be an impeachment inquiry opened,” Clinton said. “And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling.” She added, “The most outrageously false things were said about me in 2016, and unfortunately, enough people believed them. So, this is an effort to sow these falsehoods against Biden.”
