Former President Barack Obama had a secret plan in place to validate the election of failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Fox News reportedly discovered.
In the event that then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lost and challenged the results, Obama and his team were ready to hand the government over — by force, if necessary — to Hillary.
Obama administration officials told New York Magazine that a deal was reached between Obama and top Democrats and Republican establishment leaders to certify the election results in Hillary’s favor.
Thankfully, voters chose Trump instead of Hillary.
It all came about after Trump joked on the campaign trail that he’d accept the results of the presidential election… “If I win.”
According to Fox News, the plan to validate the election involved former secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. Former presidents and establishment Republicans also participated in the plan.

Ben Rhodes, a former top Obama aide, said his administration feared Trump wouldn’t accept the election result had Hillary managed to win.
“It wasn’t a hypothetical,” he said, because “Trump was already saying it on the campaign trail.”
Obama’s unpopularity meant the administration was nervous a “portion of the population” wouldn’t accept the results.
“For them, just having him say the election was legitimate was not going to be enough,” Jen Psaki, Obama’s former communications director, told Fox News.
“I don’t think there is any indication to suggest that if that’s where things headed, [Trump] would accept it. He’s laying the groundwork for delegitimizing the process now — questioning our institutions, attacking their leadership. This is all fodder for his supporters to work with in the event that things go down a dark path for him,” she added.
Of course, Trump won the election — and Hillary supporters reacted violently.
Since the 2016 presidential election, tens of thousands of angry Americans have engaged in angry protests organized by Russian agents, been arrested, rioted and burned cars, and even attempted the murder of elected conservatives like House Majority Whip Steve Scalise while chanting slogans like “Not my president!”
Obama hasn’t spoken out against them once.
