Hillary Clinton owes America an explanation because of what her campaign did to former President Donald Trump when he was her opponent. However, she has yet to address the scandal.
Clinton ignored a reporter’s question about the revelations that her campaign spied on then-candidate Trump during the 2016 presidential election, Daily Caller reported. The incriminating revelations came from Special Counsel John Durham’s report released Friday.
According to the report, Clinton’s campaign paid tech experts to gain access to servers at Trump Tower and the White House. The aim was to use data mined from that endeavor to falsely link Trump’s campaign to Russia.
At the time, the former secretary of state was locked in a contentious battle with Trump though he had never before held public office. Rather than wage a fair fight, her campaign employed these underhanded tactics — and now people want to know what she knew and when she knew it.
“Did you pay to spy on the Trump campaign?” Daily Mail lead reporter Laura Collins called out to Clinton on a New York City street. “When are you going to comment on the spying allegations, Hillary?” the reporter again asked as Clinton ignored her and went inside a building.

Clinton’s campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann was indicted in September 2021 for making false statements to an agent. Sussman had turned over supposed evidence to the FBI shortly before the election but failed to mention he was working for Clinton even as he “repeatedly” billed the campaign for his work.
Trump responded to Durham’s report saying it “provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia” in a statement to Business Insider Saturday. It now seems Trump’s claims of the Russia collusion hoax have been vindicated.
For now, Clinton can scurry away when it’s a reporter asking these questions. However, the time may come when Durham’s investigators start knocking at her door.
