Christine O’Donnell: I Have Secret Information That China Is Plotting Against Us
Christine O’Donnell circa 2006:
WASHINGTON — Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell of Delaware said in a 2006 debate that China was plotting to take over America and claimed to have classified information about the country that she couldn’t divulge.
O’Donnell’s comments came as she and two other Republican candidates debated U.S. policy on China during Delaware’s 2006 Senate primary, which O’Donnell ultimately lost.
She said China had a “carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America” and accused one opponent of appeasement for suggesting that the two countries were economically dependent and should find a way to be allies.
“That doesn’t work,” she said. “There’s much I want to say. I wish I wasn’t privy to some of the classified information that I am privy to.”
This one should be easy. Either she had a security clearance in 2006 that would have allowed her to see “classified information,” or she didn’t and she was just making stuff up.
I’m going with option two.
