Trump says Hillary Clinton 'doesn't matter anymore'

 June 12, 2023

Donald Trump isn't sweating Hillary Clinton's latest insults, saying his former rival "doesn't matter" anymore as she takes to gloating over his historic federal indictment.

Trump spoke at Georgia's GOP convention the day after Biden prosecutor Jack Smith unsealed charges for mishandling classified information under the Espionage Act.

Trump said he was retiring his trademark insult for "Crooked" Hillary Clinton and using it for Joe Biden instead because Clinton isn't relevant.

"I retired the word crooked from Hillary because Hillary doesn’t matter anymore," he said, to cheers from the crowd. "And we’re using it on Biden because in history, there’s never been a president so corrupt."

Clinton who?

Despite occasional speculation that Clinton may return to the arena, she has been largely irrelevant politically since Trump's upset victory in 2016 derailed her dreams.

Clinton has taken comfort in her former nemesis' misfortunes, however. After the Biden Justice Department unsealed its federal indictment of Trump Friday, Clinton bragged about the news by encouraging her supporters to buy "but her emails" merchandise.


Clinton controversially avoided prosecution on the eve of the 2016 election for using a private e-mail server to send classified information. The failure to charge Clinton has been seen as evidence of a double standard in the justice system.

"She knocked out 33,000 emails. And Hillary wasn’t indicted. She should have been, but she wasn’t indicted. She was protected by the Democrats. Biden was not indicted, and what he’s done is terrible," Trump said.

Deja vu

Trump and his allies have slammed his unprecedented indictment as an abuse of power meant to interfere in the 2024 presidential election.

"Biden is trying to jail his leading political opponent and opponent that’s beating him by a lot in the polls, just like they do in Stalinist Russia or Communist China," Trump said.

Trump also mocked the indictment as a repeat of the Russian collusion hoax, in which Trump was smeared as a spy working for Moscow. The bogus narrative was based on a notorious Clinton-funded dossier.

"They want to use something called the Espionage Act. Doesn’t that sound terrible? Oh, espionage," Trump said.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
