Former Trump Campaign Manager Admits There Was, in Fact, a 'Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy' to Undermine the Clintons

Conservatives participated in a "vast right-wing conspiracy" to undermine the Clintons, President Donald Trump's former deputy election campaign manager said on Sunday.

"There is a vast left-wing conspiracy that has been going on since the president won this election," ex-aide David Bossie said while speaking with host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. "All throughout the transition and during his first two years. A vast left-wing conspiracy, very similar words to what Hillary Clinton called a vast right-wing conspiracy."

Wallace interjected to say that Clinton's conspiracy allegation "didn’t turn out to be true."

Bossie responded by saying that the rumors were actually correct. "No, it was true. Chris, there was an effort by the conservative movement to undermine President Clinton."

"The Clintons have long maintained that a 'vast right-wing conspiracy' is out to get them, as Hillary Clinton told NBC News’ Matt Lauer not long after The Drudge Report introduced the world to Monica Lewinsky in 1998," NBC News reported in 2016.

Trump levied a series of attacks against the Clintons during the election campaign. 

The president, conservative pundits and Republican politicians constantly brought up Hillary Clinton's email scandal, which revolved around her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.

Trump also questioned the death of Vince Foster, who served as a White House attorney during Bill Clinton's presidency.

Foster died in 1993. Multiple investigations found that he killed himself, but rumors continued to circulate that the Clintons coordinated his murder, according to The Washington Post. 

"I don't bring it up because I don't know enough to really discuss it," Trump said in spring 2016. "I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don't do that because I don't think it’s fair."

The Trump campaign also accidentally shared its plans to target Clinton over the Whitewater scandal, which revolved around a 1970s real estate investment, with a Politico reporter.

After the election, as national attention focused on whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia, the president suggested that Clinton could have paid Russians to obtain information about him during the presidential campaign, according to CNN.

"'Dossier used to spy on Trump Campaign. Did FBI use Intel tool to influence the Election?' @foxandfriends Did Dems or Clinton also pay Russians? Where are hidden and smashed DNC servers? Where are Crooked Hillary Emails? What a mess!" he tweeted on January 11.
