  • 'It's Dangerous': Conway Rips Hillary Clinton for Saying Dems Can't Be 'Civil' With GOP

In the wake of divisive confirmation battle for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday after she told CNN that Democrats should be unwilling to be "civil" with Republicans because the GOP wants to "destroy" what Democrats believe in.

Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) dismissed Clinton's comments, telling CNN's Anderson Cooper that they were "ridiculous".

"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, you can be civil but you can't overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections", she told Amanpour.

"I hope that we can find common ground in this country that sexual assault is more prominent than people thought it was", she said.


While Heitkamp stands by her decision, her opposition to Kavanaugh may not help her re-election bid in North Dakota.

"But given that the administration has already done this with John Brennan, the former Central Intelligence Agency director, who really bashes the president at every opportunity these days", York continued, "I think people are gonna want to look at this and say what exactly what went on behind this withdrawal, the clearance". Some polls show Heitkamp trailing by double digits against Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., who has sought to paint her as someone who chose party over the people she represents. "They are pioneers of the prairie".

Heitkamp dismissed Cramer's remarks Tuesday as "a awful message". "If all we do is point fingers, that's not going to serve any objective for the victims of sexual assault in this country", Heitkamp said. "I would ask her to check that". You shouldn't disclose it?

"I've known her for a long time and I don't know - maybe she got up on the wrong side of the bed, to say that what we need to do is just get out and fight, and I know there was a Republican preacher who said, 'We need to elect more street fighters and we need to win, '" he said. "But I also know that my parents raised me to do the right thing as I see it and experience the consequences of that", she said.
