Hillary Clinton: Democrats 'Can't Be Civil' With Republicans

Hillary Clinton said America can only become civil again if Democrats win back the House and Senate this November.

"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour. "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 accused the Republican Party of being power hungry, spreading lies and playing dirty.

"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."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted the former secretary of state after her interview and accused radical Democrats of harassing people with whom they disagree.

"She told CNN exactly how she views millions of Americans who hold different political views than her own," McConnell said during a Senate floor speech. "No peace until they get their way? More of these unhinged tactics? Apparently, these are the left's rallying cry."
