After months of hiding away following her shocking defeat to Donald Trump in November, Hillary Clinton has reemerged, and it appears she’s not going away anytime soon.
In an article for Axios, Mike Allen reported earlier this week Clinton plans to launch a new political action committee designed to fund “resistance” groups Clinton supports.
“According to a source familiar with the planning, the initial focus will be on lifting up organizations that are the product of the energy and activism she has seen since the election, and existing groups that have been reignited and reinvigorated by that energy,” Allen wrote. “She has met with some of these groups, and it’s something she’s become increasingly passionate about with each meeting, the source said.”
In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday, Clinton said she’s now “back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”
CNN reports the organization, which has been named Onward Together, will help give anti-Trump groups access to funding sources. Clinton will act as “the connector” between the leftist groups and big-money donors. One source told CNN the staff will be small.
Despite Clinton’s high profile and ability to raise massive funds, top conservatives on social media don’t seem too concerned.
“I heard #HillaryClinton is forming a #RESISTANCE PAC. The electorate already resisted her entire candidacy in 2008 & 2016 #bye,” wrote CNN political commentator Paris Dennard.

“Hillary starting a “resistance” PAC. Maybe launch it in WI? But she’s returning to her core competency: Raising $,” wrote political editor for Townhall.com and Fox News contributor Guy Benson.
