A leaked draft opinion from the court this week revealed that a majority of justices had decided to strike down Roe, though their votes could change before the decision is officially released.
After calling the opinion draft “mind-blowing on many levels,” Brzezinski claimed the decision could have a major political impact in 2024.
“I was thinking about Hillary Clinton and how this just might put her over the edge and make her jump back in,” she said. “But it’s just — this is the kind of news that rocks your world as a woman.”
Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to former President Donald Trump, who is flirting with another presidential campaign.
Brzezinski asked Clinton back in March if she would consider challenging him. Clinton denied any interest in another campaign at that time.
“No, no, no,” she said. “But I am certainly going to be active in supporting women running for office and other candidates who I think should be reelected or elected.”
“No, no, no.”

Clinton was one of several Democrat women who expressed dismay at the prospect of a Roe v. Wade reversal.
“Not surprising. But still outrageous,” she claimed.
Not surprising. But still outrageous.
This decision is a direct assault on the dignity, rights, & lives of women, not to mention decades of settled law. It will kill and subjugate women even as a vast majority of Americans think abortion should be legal. What an utter disgrace. https://t.co/TNo1IX3Tl4
