Democrats are "critical" and "skeptical" of a return of former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton to the political arena, following reports that the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate was going to form a political action committee (PAC), White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway said Friday on "The Fox News Specialists."

Clinton could launch a political group as early as next week, Politico reported Thursday, with the purpose of working in resistance to the agenda of President Donald Trump, and is talking with potential donors and board members, sources told the website. 

"This political action committee, I would note for you that many elected Democrats this week and many of her comrades in the mainstream media were critical and skeptical of her return," Conway said.

"She's free to do what she wants, but the Democrats who gave money to her campaign and to the outside groups that supported her, they wanted her to win the White House. They don't want her to oppose President Trump," she added.

Conway noted that Clinton spent a reported $2 billion in her failed run for the White House and stated she was "a woman who knows how to spend money."

Clinton's group is reportedly going to be called "Onward Together," spinning off the campaign slogan "Stronger Together," which she used when running for president in 2016.

The former secretary of state is also writing a book about her failed presidential campaign.

Conway suggested Clinton could help women and girls outside of the political spotlight, if that was her priority, as she has said she wanted to do in statements since the election.

"Note how she's not going into public service. She always says she's been for women and girls. Then do something that's going to help women and girls," Conway said.

"She can actually say, 'No money.' If she really wanted to help people, she'd be welcomed to help people. That's not what she's said. This is just going to be another pro-abortion thing. We've already litigated all of that," she added.

Conway addressed the blame Clinton has placed for her loss on outside factors, rather than accepting the election results. She mentioned Clinton's criticism of Trump during a presidential debate about accepting the outcome of the election, stressing it was "six months this Monday" since the November election.

"This is from the woman who said what? That it was 'frightening' he wouldn't accept the election results," she said.
