Hillary Clinton Says Russian Misinformation Campaign Was "Guided" by Americans

"I think it's pretty hard not to".

Clinton linked Russia's interference in the 2016 elections to Trump and said she hoped investigators would be able to unmask a plot to interfere in the USA elections.

Asked to elaborate on who she believes helped direct the Russians' efforts, Clinton pointed to the contact between members of President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.

Asked by a moderator who those individuals might be, Clinton said: "We're getting more information about all of the contacts between Trump campaign officials and Trump associates with Russians before, during and after the election".

Clinton said that she did not inherit a strong data foundation from the Democratic party, which was "bankrupt" and near "insolvent".

Hillary Clinton spoke today at the Code Conference and covered a number of topics: the e-mail scandal being "the biggest nothing-burger ever", and how she "inherited nothing" (in terms of voter registration and marketing data) from the DNC.

During the campaign, Comey announced in the summer of 2016 that he would not recommend charges against Clinton or her top aides after investigating their use of a private email server for State Department business.

"They paid me", Clinton responded. "I had to inject money into it".

In December, though, Facebook said it would introduce tools to prevent fake news stories from spreading.

The former USA senator and first lady said she thought nearly a year ago that Russian Federation might be interfering in the election, but she said she couldn't get the press to cover it.

She insinuated that the issue was tailored unfairly around gender: "Men got paid for the speeches they made, and I got paid for the speeches I made".

Carlson said that she donned "the trendy tin foil hat" he said Democrats have popularized since Trump's election.

She also brought in the sexism angle, claiming that the media went after her for conducting paid speeches for Goldman Sachs while she was Secretary of State exclusively because she was a woman.

"The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant", Spicer told incredulous reporters at a news briefing. "Its data was mediocre to poor".

Clinton still seems bitter that Comey, who in large part protected her from prosecution, referred to her as such. I believe then as I believe now that we're never done with this work.
