Hillary Clinton is now making predictions about what will follow the mid-term elections. She said on Tuesday that President Trump will “wholesale fire people” following November’s elections.
“After this election, this president is going to wholesale fire people,” Clinton said during an interview on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
The former First Lady and presidential candidate said that Trump will “be even more uncontrollable and unaccountable” following the results, Clinton argued that the president will fire people who he believes are “undermining him” and “questioning him.”
“The president is close to being uncontrollable,” she continued.
Hillary also discussed the recent controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. She said it was a “a reasonable request” to have the FBI reopen an investigation into the nominee amid accusations of sexual assault against him.
Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who claimed Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her several decades ago, demanded that a “full investigation” be conducted by the FBI before she takes part in a congressional hearing.
Clinton said that Ford’s “reasonable request” could be addressed “quickly” by the White House.
“I think that’s a reasonable request,” Clinton said. “The White House could answer it very quickly by asking the FBI to reopen its background check and to take into account the accusation that’s been made and to gather the evidence about what can be known. So far, they haven’t done that.”
Ford maintains that Kavanaugh forced himself onto her and covered her mouth in the 1980’s when he was 17 and she was 15. The allegations from Ford have potentially delayed the Senate confirmation process.
In a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Ford’s attorneys demanded a “full investigation by law enforcement officials” which they say “will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”
Clinton continued saying, “Because what they have done, as her lawyers point out, is put Dr. Ford in the position of having to make her case without any kind of investigation that could be either helpful or detrimental to her,” Clinton said. “And I think she’s asking that she be given the courtesy of having some facts laid out.”
“Give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country and that means have an investigation that will then lead to a hearing that will then lead to a vote, if appropriate,” she said.
