Hillary Clinton Slams Democrats For Complacency in Latest Book

Former US Secretary of State and Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has lambasted her party in an interview discussing her new book. She claimed that Democrats have been “complacent” about abortion for years. “We didn’t take it seriously, and we didn’t understand the threat,” Clinton said, adding that most Americans, and most Democrats, still fail to realize they are in an “existential struggle” for America’s future.

The former Senator furthermore claimed that Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, whose presence on the Supreme Court bench assured that Roe v Wade was overturned, were dishonest during their Senate confirmation hearings. She claimed they “flat out lied,” and Senate Democrats did nothing to challenge them.

Clinton is not the first to accuse the Judges of dishonesty. In 2022, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argued that they should face impeachment for lying under oath. Senator Susan Collins of Maine agreed and insisted that the decision to overturn Roe was “inconsistent” with the Justices’ Senate confirmation hearing testimony.

During her recent interview, Hillary Clinton also reiterated her previous warnings about America’s future should Donald Trump re-enter the White House next year. She warned that the US may never see another Presidential election and that America faces a future ruled by a “small minority of right-wing forces” that will turn back the clock on women’s rights.

Secretary Clinton has previously compared former President Trump to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and believes he will terminate American democracy. She justified the comparison by explaining that Hitler came to power via legitimate elections but then declared himself dictator and canceled future ballots. She has likewise criticized Mr. Trump’s environment and foreign policies, saying he will likely withdraw the US from NATO unilaterally even though Congress has decreed he cannot do so without Congressional approval.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, however, has expressed confidence that America will remain “a strong ally and partner” regardless of who wins November’s election.
