Hillary 2020? It Looks Like Clinton Is Preparing Her Hostile Takeover Of The Nomination After Interview With CNN Reporter Zakaria Where She Would Not Endorse Biden

Hillary Clinton is not playing around when it comes to the 2020 presidential election and her disdain for one of the Democrat candidates, namely Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The former secretary of state has still not gotten over how she says the Vermont senator and his supporters treated her in 2016.
But it looks like she also has not gotten over her own defeat to President Donald Trump in 2016, which is why it looks like she could be planning her own coronation.
WATCH: Hillary Clinton refuses to endorse Joe Biden, after saying that Bernie Sanders isn't the "strongest nominee against Donald Trump."

CNN's Fareed Zakaria quickly points out that there isn't anybody left in the Democrat's primary.

If neither Biden nor Sanders get the party’s nomination by acquiring the needed delegates before the Democrat convention she could emerge as the candidate.
With Sanders not being a Democrat and Biden’s cognitive abilities in question the party might not feel comfortable nominating either and could see Clinton as their backup plan.
This might seem like a wild idea and it is a reach, but does Clinton see it that way? Consider what she said to CNN host Fareed Zakaria on Sunday.
“I’m not endorsing,” she said before she again laced into Sanders and his supporters and said Biden had the better chance of winning.
“I think what Joe’s victories on Super Tuesday showed is that he is building the kind of coalition that I had basically,” she said.
“It’s a broad-based coalition. I finished, you know, most of the work I needed to do for the nomination on Super Tuesday, and then it kind of lingered on, and I think Joe is on track to doing exactly the same thing: putting together a coalition of voters who are energized,” she said.
She mentions that Biden is doing things like she did, so she should endorse him as other establishment Democrats did, but she declines to.
She took on Sanders and his supporters saying that they should back Biden if he gets the nomination but, again did not endorse the former vice president.
“I hope so because his failure and the behavior of a lot of his top aides, and certainly many of his supporters — up to the convention, at the convention, and even up to Election Day was not helpful,“ she said of the 2016 race,” she said.
“I had thought we would unify, that’s what we’d always done before and that’s what I expected. I certainly tried to do that when I ran against Barack Obama and worked very hard for him,” she said.
Her disdain for Sanders is apparent and it is unlikely she would do a ton of work, if any, to get him elected if he won the general.
Then there is no good reason, considering what she has said, that she would not endorse Biden, unless she has a plan B and that plan B is her.

Conservative leaders sign letter calling for Schumer censure over alleged threats to Kavanaugh, Gorsuch

Media split as Schumer scolded

EXCLUSIVE: Dozens of well-known conservative leaders signed a letter released Monday that calls for the censure of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after the New York Democrat allegedly threatened Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch last week.
Those who signed the letter include former South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint; former Ronald Reagan campaign adviser Ed Rollins; Republican Attorneys General Association Chairman and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry; and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, among others.
The open letter to U.S. senators, organized by the pro-Trump Article III Project, which is dedicated to helping get the president's judicial nominees confirmed, says that Schumer's previous apology for the remarks was insufficient and cites Chief Justice John Roberts' statement which called Schumer's remarks "not only inappropriate" but "dangerous." It calls for the Senate to censure him.
"Schumer’s threatening words were unmistakable, unprecedented, and unacceptable," the letter read. "Contrary to what his spokesman later claimed, Schumer’s words were not addressed to Senate Republicans, but to two Supreme Court Justices, by name. Schumer’s threat wasn’t that Republicans would face electoral consequences, but that Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh 'will pay the price' and 'won’t know what hit them.'"
Schumer made the comment in question while speaking at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while it was hearing a high-profile abortion case last Wednesday.
"I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!" Schumer said. "You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."
The comments led to the near-universal condemnation of Schumer, including from Roberts; liberal Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe; the anti-Trump husband of Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, George Conway; and more.
Schumer's office initially issued a statement firing back at Roberts, which said that the chief justice was intentionally taking Schumer's comments out of context while also accusing Roberts of bias. "Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes," the statement said.
He later issued a soft apology on the Senate floor, saying, "I shouldn’t have used the words I did."
Nevertheless, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., introduced a resolution to censure Schumer in the Senate, which Monday's letter supports.

"In a better world, this episode would mark the end of Chuck Schumer’s political career," it says. "But even in America in 2020, it should be a permanent blot on Schumer’s record. We therefore strongly support a resolution to censure Schumer on the Senate floor."
The letter also calls Schumer's comments a threat that "is unprecedented in the history of our nation." It compares the minority leader's words with Trump's calls for Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg to recuse themselves from cases related to his administration and former President Barack Obama's comments about the high court's ruling in Citizen's United during a State of the Union Address with six justices in attendance, saying that neither was nearly as bad as what Schumer said.
"There is simply no parallel to Schumer’s threat, which he directed to two justices by name," the letter says.
Other signatories include Mike Davis, the founder and president of the Article III Project; William Chamberlain, the editor in chief of Human Events; Matthew Heiman, associate director of George Mason law school; Jessica Anderson, president of Heritage Action; Kelly Shackelford, the president and CEO fo the First Liberty Institute; Cleta Mitchell, a partner and political law attorney at Foley and Lardner; Rachel Bovard, the senior policy director for the Conservative Partnership Institute; Eric Beach, chairman of the Great Again PAC; Ian Prior, a former Department of Justice spokesman; Jenny Beth Martin, the honorary chairman of Tea Party Patriots Action; and Terry Campo, the former general counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
