Donald Trump's impeachment has brought a boatload of unhinged conspiracy theories out of the woodwork of conservative media.
Brian J. Karem, the White House correspondent for Playboy, posted a particularly insane one on Twitter.
Apparently, inside the White House, at least one person thinks Hillary Clinton may have lost the 2016 election on purpose so that Democrats could impeach Trump three years later.
Not from the Onion but from a WH source - "Hillary Clinton purposely lost the election with the aid of Russian hack… https://t.co/Ajry87cLSp— Brian J. Karem (@Brian J. Karem)1576684705.0

Twitter couldn't stop cracking up at Clinton's low-key shade.
