Bush era Republican Richard Armitage, who was sworn in as Deputy Secretary of State just weeks before the 9/11 attacks on America, backs Clinton over Trump. Many conspiracies have swirled over the years regarding Armitage, most of which have been 'scrubbed' from the internet. With his vast tentacles, over decades of holding various positions in government, military, intelligence and undisclosed clandestine activities from the Vietnam era to the Terror era, Armitage's betrayal to the Republican party is not all that surprising to people with a working memory of his skeptical dealings with both Republican and Democrats in the past. To many who follow horrible events in American history Armitage is one scary dude and this support for Clinton is a 'lockstep message' to others within the 'insider' community to follow... or else.
