Hillary Clinton: Voting for Republicans Is a 'Direct Attack' on Democracy
Democrat warns of 'rise of authoritarianism' ahead of 2024 election
Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has issued a dire warning about "the rise of authoritarianism" ahead of the 2024 election.
According to Clinton, voting for Republicans in America's elections is a "direct attack" on democracy.
Hillary issued the warning at the end of an interview with PBS published Friday.
She made the alarmist comments when asked to address the poor forecasts for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.
"I think it depends upon, you know, number one, whether Democrats are willing to point out the extremism that has captured the Republican party," she said.
"And to make it clear, this is not about special interest groups, this is not about one group of Americans versus another, this is about the rise of authoritarianism within our own country," she claimed.
"This is a direct attack on our democracy," Clinton declared.
"So if Democrats are willing, you know, not only to address the issues that are kitchen table issues, which we do pretty well, but also to raise some of the concerns about what kind of country we're going to have, I think that we can do better than is predicted."
Clinton suffered a legal defeat when a judge ruled in favor of a request from U.S. special counsel John Durham.
Durham requested access to some Hillary Clinton-Fusion GPS documents revealed in court that were previously protected by the attorney-client privilege.
The judge is now reviewing the documents and will determine whether they hold information that is relevant to Durham's probe.
Elsewhere in the interview, Clinton discussed whether Roe v. Wade, the landmark abortion decision, had enough precedent to continue in force.
She said that the conservative justices on the court had suffered a "brain change" if they overturn the ruling.
She also claimed that the campaign to end abortion rights by overturning Roe v. Wade was motivated on the part of Republicans by a desire to institute a patriarchal form of government in the U.S.
