Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is pledging not to drop out of the political fight, despite what she calls efforts by some conservatives to silence her.

“You know, these guys on the other side are not just interested in my losing, they want to keep coming after me. I mean, think about that for a minute,” Clinton said in a New York magazine profile published Friday.

{mosads}Clinton has long been a target of criticism by conservatives, from her time as first lady in the 1990s to her presidential campaign last year. As a candidate, President Trump often urged supporters to chant “lock her up” during rallies as he accused Clinton of crimes.

Months after the election, Fox News’s Sean Hannity has pushed a conspiracy suggesting Clinton was involved in the murder of a Democratic National Committee staffer last year.

“What are they so afraid of? Me, to some extent. Because I don’t die, despite their best efforts. But what [really drives them] is what I represent,” Clinton said.

The former secretary of State is in the process of writing a book, in which she reflects on her election loss. Clinton says the process is “excruciating.”

Clinton opened up to New York magazine about her 2016 loss, and gave her take on the probe into Russian election meddling. She called Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey “an effort to derail and bury the Russia inquiry.”
