Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday urged Democratic lawmakers to change Senate rules so that it “protects Americans’ voting rights.”
Referring to the president who signed the Voting Rights Act, he tweeted: “‘The right to vote is a fundamental right. Everyone without it is meaningless,’ said Lyndon B. Johnson.
He said: “It’s time for Senate Democrats to set rules to protect Americans’ voting rights.”

His comments came as Democrats demanded an end to filibuster in order to pass voting reforms and other legislation.
Clinton advocated ending filibuster in September, arguing that the Republicans did not respect the rule of law.
“Keeping filibuster now, when you’re dealing with a political party that doesn’t respect the rule of law, it doesn’t even respect the process unless it works for them. See what President Obama did to Merrick Garland. All rights to appoint Supreme Court justices,” Said that reported During the interview.
An explosive proposal to end or water down the filibuster would make it more difficult for Republicans to oppose the White House and the House of Representatives – both of which are dominated by Democrats.
Clinton’s tweet Sen. Joe Manchin, may be a subtle message to DW.Va. The moderate Democrat vote is key to eliminating the filibuster in a deeply divided Senate.
Manchin also upset Democrats when he put Kibosh on President Biden’s Build Back Better proposal last month.
