“I will never be out of the game of politics,” Clinton said.
“I’m not going to be running for anything but I really feel like our democracy’s at stake for many reasons … some of them we saw on the screen with the insurrection, some of them are about Facebook that creates a world of disinformation instead of one we can agree on what the facts are. I really am worried,” she added.
“I do worry that we face a lot of really serious problems that don’t get the attention they deserve,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s been inching her way back into the political spotlight.
In an interview last week with The Atlantic, Clinton argued that she is concerned that the Republican Party is engaged in minority rule and that we are on the brink of a “constitutional crisis.”
“I won the popular vote, lost the Electoral College by 70,000-plus votes, and we saw all this stuff online about the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks and the Russians and all of that,” she said, again lamenting her defeat to Donald Trump in 2016.
“And then Joe Biden won by a huge popular-vote margin, but only won the Electoral College by about 100,000 votes. So the parallels between what happened in 2016 and 2020 are not often understood. And why that’s important is, the Republicans—and now we have to say the Republican Party, not just the Trumpers and all of those who are part of this effort to undermine our democracy, but the Republican Party—were shocked that they lost, because they never thought that they would lose by such narrow margins and, we know, accurately and legitimately in places like Georgia or Arizona. So what are they going to do now?” she said.
“Now they’re not only going to try to suppress votes on steroids; they’re going to try to change the way elections are determined. They’re going to try to give legislatures the power to basically throw out elections if they don’t go their way because now they want to be able to win, even if they lose the popular vote and they legitimately lose the Electoral College,” she argued.
Republicans have argued that the changes they have made to voting laws in some states is an effort to simply secure the vote.
