White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to Hillary Clinton’s ridiculous “request” this week with fire and fury.
While speaking to reporters outside the White House on Thursday, Sanders was asked about Clinton calling on China to steal President Donald Trump’s tax returns and release them to the public.
“I think it’s hypocrisy at its best,” Sanders said of Clinton’s comments. “I think she’s got herself confused with the previous administration; they actually didn’t do anything to stop interference in the election
“Honestly I’m baffled by it and it’s truly astonishing comments from Secretary Clinton,” Sanders added.

During an interview on Wednesday night with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Clinton called on China to hack into the IRS, steal Trump’s tax returns, and release them to the public to help Democrats in 2020.
“Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show, and that person said, you know, the only other adversary of ours who is anywhere near as good as the Russians is China,” Clinton told Maddow.
She added: “So why should Russia have all the fun? And since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don’t we ask China to back us?”
“And not only that, China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns?” I’m sure our media would richly reward you.”
Clinton, clearly still bitter about Robert Mueller vindicating Trump, said China’s interference could be part of a “great power contest.”
“Let’s have a great power contest, and let’s get the Chinese in on the side of somebody else,” Clinton said. “Just saying, that shows how absurd the situation we find ourselves in.”

Clinton has been very vocal lately about the 2020 presidential election.
Bill and Hillary Clinton were interviewed over the weekend by comedian Jordan Klepper as part of their unsuccessful “An Evening with the Clintons” tour.
At one point in the event, Klepper asked Hillary Clinton, “What advice would you have for 2020 candidates based on the experiences you had in 2016?”
“Don’t get on the wrong side of Vladimir Putin. That would be the first,” Hillary said, again blaming Russia for her 2016 election loss.

Her “tip” for 2020 candidates is apparently to blame Russia if it doesn’t go their way.
Clinton has also been busy lately attacking Trump and his supporters.
Last month, she referred to the United States as a “broken democracy” under Trump.
A few months ago, she accused Trump of being a bigot, racist, and having a long “streak of racism.”
Speaking at OzyFest in New York late last year, Clinton insulted Americans, and said anyone who doesn’t believe Trump’s policies are hurting America isn’t “walking around with their eyes open.”
Clinton is still beyond obsessed with becoming president and continues to say whatever she can for attention.
