While she did write a book about her 2016, Hillary Clinton has been relatively quiet over the last 3 years. While the former Secretary of State hasn’t said no to a return to politics, she will not be seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination.
On Wednesday morning, Clinton appeared on Howard Stern’s Sirius radio show. The more informal nature of Stern’s show allowed the former First Lady to be more open about her former colleagues in Washington DC. And the former colleague that seems to have disappointed her the most is South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
Clinton talked about their relationship when she worked in the Senate. She told Stern, “Lindsey was good company, he was funny, he was self-deprecating.”
She also said that he was someone she could work with on a bipartisan basis. Clinton continued, “He also believed in climate change back in those days. I saw him as somebody who, you know, had been working to try to figure out what he believed and how he could do things.”
The host then asked, “Has he sold his soul to the devil?” The 2016 Democratic candidate responded, “I don’t know. That’s a fair question, however. I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t talked to him in a long time … It’s like he had a brain snatch, you know?”
While Graham has largely remained on Team Trump, he did do something this week that Clinton likely would have approved of. The South Carolina senator broke with the President about 2016 election meddling. Graham told reporters Tuesday, “It was the Russians. I’m 1,000% confident that the hack of the DNC was by Russian operatives, no one else.”
