Source: Hillary Clinton to launch PAC aiding 2018 candidates, resistance organizations

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will launch a PAC dedicated to supporting 2018 congressional candidates and organizations she cares about, according to a new Axios report.

Clinton has made multiple public appearances since her historic loss against Republican opponent Donald Trump in the 2016 election -- and Axios head Mike Allen writes the former secretary of state's political action committee will serve as a way to act as a "quiet catalyst" in the political sphere.

"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 writes. "She has met with some of these groups, and it's something she's become increasingly passionate about with each meeting, the source said."

Allen also notes Clinton has "no intention" to use the PAC as a vehicle to run for office again herself, according to the source.

Clinton reflected on the 2016 election on Tuesday during an interview on MSNBC, emphasizing the pivotal role of Russia's involvement and FBI Director James Comey's letter announcing a probe against her.

"I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off," Clinton said. "And the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive."
