Bill Clinton Claims New York Times And Trump Had a Deal to Steal Election from His Wife

A reporter for the New York Times claims that Bill Clinton is spreading rumors about a conspiracy theory. The former president was so disgruntled after his wife's loss that he starte3d telling people that it was the New York Times that cost Hillary the 2016 election.

Mr. Clinton claims the media outlet harped on her email server scandal as part of a deal with President Donald Trump to help him win.

Mr. Clinton allegedly started the rumor after the election, according to Amy Chozick, a Times reporter. Chozick explains the details in her new book, ‘Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling'.

Chozick says that there was some animosity toward her from Clinton just because she was a reporter for the Times. The author said that she tried to remain objective, but as a long-time Clinton supporter, her coverage leaned favorable.

“I still wanted, more than anything, for Hillary to see me as a fair reporter,” Chozick complained.

According to the journalist, Bill Clinton believes that the Times made the sinister deal because they believed that Trump getting elected would boost their traffic and drive up their stock prices, the Daily Beast reports in an excerpt.

Chozick covered Hillary Clinton's campaign from the start. The Clintons believed that the NYT were biased against her from the start, and that they repeatedly attacked her by covering her email scandal a little too extensively.

The final nail in the coffin, they believe, were the three front page headline stories when former FBI agent James Comey reopened the investigation into the email issue just over a week before the election.

The New York Times is actually doing well under Trump; in 2017, digital subscriptions increased, giving the Gray Lady an additional $1 billion in revenue. However, there is no evidence that any deal was struck with Donald Trump.

Mr. Trump had, in fact, been referring to the paper as the 'failing' Times, and was unhappy about the negative press coverage against him.

Chozick actually says that Clinton's own campaign was responsible for Trump's win. Early in the election, they wanted to 'maximize' Trump. They had hoped he would win the primaries because they believed he was the weakest candidate for her to run against.

They assumed if she faced off against Trump, she would easily clinch a win.

Things, clearly, did not work out that way.

It shouldn't be surprising that the Clintons are blaming Hillary's election loss on the Times. She's blamed just about everyone else: white voters, minority voters, female voters, male voters, Republicans, Democrats, Comey, the FBI, Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein, the media in general.

The former candidate has claimed that she takes full responsibility for the loss, but only as a precursor to the laundry list of people, institutions and attitudes she says were the real reason she lost.

"I knew it. I knew this would happen to me," Clinton said, according to the book, when her campaign manager Robbie Mook had to break the news to her about her loss. "They were never going to let me be president."

All in all, the newest 'conspiracy theory' about the Times working against Clinton isn't shocking, considering the source of the rumor.
