Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her tribute to the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who died last week at age 90, to warn people that they should really take former President Donald Trump at his word.
“We should believe him when he tells us what he’s going to do next,” Clinton warned of her 2016 election rival an opinion piece for the Washington Post released Monday saying Trump has vowed to “check executive power,” “arm the Justice Department to prosecute political opponents” and more if he wins back the White House in 2024.
Clinton remembered Feinstein’s commentafter exposing the CIA’s post-9/11 abuses, that: “History will judge us by our commitment to a just, lawful society and the willingness to confront an ugly truth and say ‘Never again.’ “
“These are words we should remember as we face the challenges that lie ahead,” Clinton said. “Dianne has left the national stage at another moment of political violence and threat to the rule of law. So we have to face the ugly truths again and do the right thing.”
“Dianne’s journey is over, but the struggles of her life are far from over,” she concluded.
