Jefferson wanted slavery to continue. He hired James Callender to lie to the public about the mental status of Adams who wanted slavery to end. Enough of the public believed Callender's many lies. Jefferson won the election and slavery continued.  Approx. 100yrs later Lincoln and an entire population of people  lost their lives to stop those crimes against humanity. Jefferson apologized to Adams for telling those lies but only after there was no further risk to his career.
