Hillary Slams Trump's 'Sorry' to Kavanaugh, Says GOP Wants to Destroy Us


Speaking with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Secretary Clinton paints a dire picture if Democrats don't recapture the House or Senate.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, speaking to CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour, said the Republicans can no longer be reasoned with and the only way to bring civility back to the nation is to elect Democrats.

"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," Clinton said from Oxford, England. "That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength."

Clinton had harsh words for Donald Trump's unrelenting push for Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation, which was done while the judge was accused of sexual assault; Kavanaugh also berated Democratic senators and "the Clintons" during the hearing and lied about his drinking habits. When Trump swore in Kavanaugh on Monday night, the president apologized to Kavanaugh and stated, incorrectly, he'd been proven innocent of the sexual misconduct charges. Clinton labeled Trump's diatribe about Kavanaugh a "political rally."

Clinton said Republican cruelty is not new, citing the party's effort to end the recount in the 2000 presidential election, the "swift boat" smears of 2004 Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, and the many, many lies told about her for the past quarter-century.

"I remember what they did to me for 25 years -- the falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because the Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort in promoting them," Clinton said. "So when you're dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, it's -- you can be civil, but you can't overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections."
