On Tuesday, failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that the GOP and conservatives can “begin the healing and unifying process” by admitting that Joe Biden “was duly elected president in a free and fair election.”
Clinton wrote on Twitter, “Here’s how elected Republicans and conservative media can begin the healing and unifying process: Accurately state that Joe Biden was duly elected president in a free and fair election.”
Here's how elected Republicans and conservative media can begin the healing and unifying process:

Urge Trump supporters to refrain from further violence.
For a start.

Clinton’s Tweet Comes As Democrats Push For Impeachment
Clinton’s comments come as Democrats continue to push another attempt to impeachment President Trump.
Accusing the President of inciting the Capitol Hill riots last week, Democrat leaders plan to meet on Wednesday to consider articles of impeachment.
The single article of impeachment read, “President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transfer of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government.”
It added, “He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”
The impeachment article was introduced by Democratic House members Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Ted Lieu of California, and Jamie Raskin of Maryland.
Last week’s attack is cause for grief and outrage. But it should not be cause for shock.

Hillary Clinton Still Hasn’t Admitted Trump Won In 2016
The former Secretary of State wants conservatives to admit Joe Biden won the 2020 election, but as recently as 2019, Clinton essentially claimed that the 2016 election was rigged.
On CBS This Morning in September of 2019, Clinton claimed that Trump is an “illegitimate president” and that the election was neither fair nor free.
“I believe he 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.”
Clinton Published Op-Ed About ‘White Supremacy’
Clinton published an op-ed in the Washington Post on Monday, arguing that pursuing impeachment alone will not “remove white supremacy from America.”
“Trump ran for president on a vision of America where whiteness is valued at the expense of everything else. In the White House, he gave white supremacists, members of the extreme right and conspiracy theorists their most powerful platforms yet, even claiming that there were “very fine people” among the torch-wielding militia members who converged on Charlottesville in 2017,” Clinton wrote.
On January 8, Clinton celebrated President Trump’s personal Twitter account being permanently banned.
