While the Russia collusion story explodes, now including the former secretary of state and her cronies, Hillary Clinton said during a Wednesday interview that the Republican Party is “imploding” and she is worried that the GOP is becoming captive to a far-right “cabal.”
The failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate has been promoting her book, “What Happened,” which delves into her election loss, on tour in Europe and the United States over the past month.
“There are a lot of things that I worry about. This is actually on my list of what I worry about: The Republican Party is imploding,” Clinton told ABC News. “We’ve seen in the last week … we’ve seen Bob Corker, we’ve seen Jeff Flake — there are a lot of other people in the Republican Party who feel exactly the same way.”
Clinton acknowledges that the GOP is changing. “It is becoming a far-right, captive party to ideological religious and commercial interests,” she said, further claiming, “It is at the mercy of its financial backers and a cabal of leaders who are doing things like shrinking the electorate, gerrymandering, and taking every step they can to maintain power for themselves and those who are like-minded.”
