Steve Bannon, former chief executive of the Trump campaign, believes failed 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is positioning herself for another run for the White House in 2020.
Bannon, speaking with Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan, said he thinks the Democrats are disillusioned with their current crop of candidates — and are willing to drop the frontrunners and bring in Hillary or a “centrist” to take down the president.
“They think they have a weak field and they’re — it’s like in chess. They’re prepared to sacrifice a rook to take down a king,” he explained.
“They will throw Biden away to get to Trump and hope Elizabeth [Warren] or I even think Hillary Clinton or [Michael] Bloomberg or some centrist comes in here.”
Bannon explained that, as he sees it, Hillary Clinton is almost definitely running — and is simply trying to find a way to wedge herself back into contention.
“She is running,” he stated.
“She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in.”

Bannon noted that Hillary has been very active since the House impeachment inquiry was announced — that she’s been emboldened by her fellow Democrats who are doing everything they can to hit the reset button on the 2016 election.
Clinton is currently on a book tour with her daughter, Chelsea, but she has repeatedly chimed in on the current state of affairs at numerous public events.
She said President Donald Trump “betrayed our country,” represents a “clear and present danger,” and is an “illegitimate” president.
“The Chinese Communist Party is not a clear and present danger,” Bannon sarcastically lamented of Hillary’s view. “Donald Trump is a clear and present danger.”
The president of the United States has betrayed our country.
That’s not a political statement—it’s a harsh reality, and we must act.
He is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free.
I support impeachment.

Recently asked whether or not she’s still bothered by Democrats not invoking her name on the campaign trail or the president’s comments about her, Hillary lashed out — saying she essentially never deserved to lose in the first place.
“No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate president,” Hillary Clinton said, clearly distraught.
“I believe he [Trump] understands that the many varying tactics they used — from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did,” Hillary added.
Of course, none of this is true.
Clinton’s claims that she lost due to voter suppression are so dubious, even The Washington Post labeled it a complete and utter lie.

Hillary Clinton’s lies, brazen as they may be, are becoming more frequent again in light of the new impeachment push.
Perhaps the Brits are onto something.
A recent report showed bettors in England have been putting their money on Hillary Clinton, more so than any other candidate, to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.
Now Steve Bannon seems to agree.
