The “lock her up” chants that began at Trump’s rallies way back in 2016 are coming back to life after Special Counsel John Durham’s latest filing.
A group of protesters gathered outside of the Democratic Convention where Hillary Clinton is set to be a keynote speaker and started to chant “lock her up”.
The protesters were far from quiet and chanted other phrases such as “murderer” and “Watergate” as Clinton walked by them to enter the convention.
Watch the protesters give Hillary a warm welcome here:

Yahoo News had more on the story:
Protesters in NYC chanted “lock her up” outside the Empire State’s Democratic convention where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is slated to speak.
Reporters with Fox News Digital caught the chants on film Thursday afternoon as Clinton entered the building to speak at the 2022 New York State Democratic Convention amid the controversy from Special Counsel John Durham’s Russia investigation origin probe.
“Lock her up!” several protesters yelled. Another sign-holding protester called the recent revelations “Watergate 2.0.”
The protesters gathered outside the Sheraton Hotel in the Big Apple also chanted “no vaccine mandates” – such as the current one in New York City.
Clinton reacted to Durham’s latest filing on Wednesday, criticizing former President Trump and Fox News for “desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones.”
Hillary Clinton SPIED on the sitting President of the United States in an attempt to REMOVE him from office. This is the CRIME of the century! She needs to PAY for this! LOCK HER UP!

In response to the Durham filing Hillary Clinton does wheat she does best and that’s fabricate the truth, the Daily Mail had more on Clinton’s latest statement:
Hillary Clinton claimed accusations her campaign spied on Donald Trump are a ‘conspiracy’ tied to his mounting legal issues and slammed Republicans for backing ‘coup plotters’ and pushing the ‘big lie’ in her major comeback speech in New York on Thursday.
‘We can’t get distracted, whether it’s by the latest culture war nonsense, or some new right wing lie on Fox or Facebook – by the way they’ve been coming after me again lately in case you might have noticed,’ Clinton told the New York Democratic Convention in response to special counsel John Durham’s filing over on Friday.
‘It’s funny, the more trouble Trump gets into the wilder the charges and conspiracies about me seem to get,’ Clinton said.
‘So now his accountants have fired him. And investigations draw closer to him. And on the right the noise machine gets turned up,’ she added.
