Hillary Clinton Considering 2020 Run, According To New Reports

New reports indicate that failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may make a last minute entry into the 2020 presidential race. This comes after it was reported on Tuesday that members of the Democratic establishment have gone into full panic mode, as they don’t believe any of the current Democratic candidates can actually beat Donald Trump next year.

The New York Times reported yesterday that Clinton has privately been telling those close to her that she would run in 2020 if she was absolutely sure she would win. The publication also said that half-dozen Democratic donors gathered in New York City this week, and they questioned whether current Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden would be able to beat Trump in the election. Their concerns about Biden include the former vice president’s fundraising struggles and his need to defend his family’s business dealings in Ukraine amid the ongoing Trump impeachment inquiry.

The Washington Post also reported that sources have been saying that Clinton is considering running against Trump again in 2020 after the State Department concluded this week there was “no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information” regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Fox News noted, however, that this same report found dozens of individuals were at fault for mishandling classified information and also found hundreds of security violations during her tenure as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013.

Multiple outlets have said that Clinton is not the only last-minute candidate that members of the Democratic establishment are hoping will enter the race. Others include former First Lady Michelle Obama, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Disney chief executive Bob Iger, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.

President Trump himself has previously expressed hopes that Clinton would run against him again.

“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” Trump tweeted earlier this month. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”

Clinton fired back on Twitter by ominously saying, “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”
