Clinton Calls For Action To Stop Russian Meddling In US Elections

Hillary Clinton said Russia, Misogyny, Comey and WikiLeaks were responsible for her loss.

Hillary Clinton gave an interview Thursday during the Women in the World Summit in NY.

She said that Russian leader Vladimir Putin is "not exactly fond of strong women, although he did shake hands with me".

"A foreign power meddled with our election and did so in a way that we are learning more about every single day", CNN quoted Clinton as saying.

At the Lincoln Center in New York City on Thursday, hiking aficionado Hillary Clinton made clear she still doesn't accept much responsibility for losing the 2016 election.

Kristof also asked Clinton who she thought was to blame for her loss, which is a question that sounds like it needs at least five hours and a large glass of wine to answer in full.

"As I said yesterday afternoon it is essential that the world does more to deter Assad from committing future murderous atrocities", Clinton said.

The United States could not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next, close the U.S. doors to the refugees from Syria, she said.

"I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this White House seems to be pursuing", she said.

She also took digs at U.S. and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

"I really believe that we should've and still should take out his airfields and prevent him from being able to bbomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them", she said.

Clinton said potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation should be looked into.

Nearly four months after her stunning defeat, Hillary Clinton on Thursday primarily blamed her loss to President Donald Trump on four factors that were beyond her control.

A number of politicians across the political spectrum share her concern about Russia's alleged interference, Clinton said, including Virginia Sen.

This is a women's empowerment conference. "Certainly misogyny played a role", she said, according to The Guardian. Clinton added that she doesn't want anybody running campaigns to have their communications stolen. That just has to be admitted.

When asked whether she would run for office again, Clinton said she "likely" will not, focusing instead on helping Democrats regain a majority in Congress.
