Hillary Clinton, who turns 70 as this piece is being written, has a host of troubles to contend with, from the Uranium One scandal to the revelation that he campaign colluded on the so-called Trump Russia dossier. However, neither her birthday nor her latest legal troubles have stopped her from expressing concern for the Republican Party. She says that the GOP is “imploding” and that this process frightens her.

Why does Clinton claim the Republican Party is ‘imploding?’

Clinton, who has been on a book tour in the United States and Europe selling her campaign memoirs “What Happened” sat down with ABC News to offer her assessment of the state of the Republican Party.

She spoke the day after two Republican Senators, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee announced their intentions to not run for reelection in 2018, citing their opposition to President Donald Trump.

Clinton accused the Republican Party of “becoming a far-right captive party to ideological religious and commercial interests.” She made the claim as if she thought it was a new development. Democratic politicians have accused the GOP of being in the pockets of religious fanatics and significant money interests for decades, at least since the Reagan administration.

What is the real state of the Republican Party?

To be sure, the Senate seems to be gridlocked on specific issues, particularly on Obamacare repeal and replace.

However, as Fox News points out, the Republicans have won all of the House special elections in 2017. Moreover, the Republican National Committee has raised $100 million since the election of Donald Trump as president. This figure compares favorably with the DNC’s $43 million hail during the same period.

What is the real reason Clinton is worried about the Republicans?

Hillary Clinton knows that she is in trouble again. Moreover, she must suspect, as Newsbusters is reporting, that erstwhile allies in the media and the Democratic Party are getting ready to throw her under the bus. Clinton’s political career is over, and any hope of her becoming president was dashed last November.

Democrats, accusations of Russian plots aside, must know that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election fair and square. The advantage of covering for her various misdeeds no longer exists, so is time to cut her loose.

Clinton, however, is not quite ready to go into that good night. With the Russian conspiracy excuse dissolving, she is attempting to change the subject. If she can have the media concentrate on the alleged woes of the Republican Party and not her legal problems, she can hope to remain relevant just a while longer.
