Former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta on Thursday responded to Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s assertion that we may never know if Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.
Podesta, while appearing on MSNBC, quickly dismissed Kobach’s statements:
“Let’s start with the facts, Hillary Clinton won more than, nearly 3 million more votes than Donald Trump nationally. He won the electoral college, we accepted the results. But that doesn’t change the fact that she won the popular vote by a very substantial [margin].”
But it did take some time for the Clinton campaign to fully accept the results of the 2016 election.
Politico reported, in December of 2016, that Podesta stated that the Clinton campaign supported the efforts of members of the Electoral College in their requests for intelligence briefings on possible foreign intervention in the presidential election.

“The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security. Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed,” Podesta said.
