The thing is, they did kinda get Hillary. Her whole political existence for the past 20+ years was to be President. She stayed in a bad marriage and actually shielded a sexual predator (even slut-shamed the women he assaulted) in order to stay close to power. She then used her time as Sec of State to fill the coffers of the Clinton Foundation by favoring Friends of Bill. She did everything to get to the point in 2016 (after having the unlucky timing in 2008 to be blindsided by the Obama phenomenon) to be the slam dunk candidate, and even had what seemed to be a fortunate opponent in the abhorrent Trump candidacy, and despite all of that she lost. And now she's a political has-been going on talk shows and saying everyone is a Russian asset. History won't be kind to her, and what's worse, she's stuck in the present where she will never be President and she knows it. Hard to imagine her being happy with that.
I guess thats a victory for their cause, at the cost of looking like halfwitted clowns for decades. Hell, thats win/win for me. Toss in an impeachment resulting in president Pelosi and its a trifecta. Trump manages to take the FBI and the DOJ down with him and its quinella time, baby!
I think you're describing the "nobody wins" scenario that is this presidency in a nutshell
Everybody that knew Trump personally said as much
If Trump gets elected:
Nobody will get what they want
nobody will win in the end
and everybody will have to eat a sh!t sandwich on the race to the bottom
