Hillary Clinton called out Russia on Wednesday blaming it for her loss against Trump in November’s Presidential elections.
Clinton also accuses the White House of cooperating with Moscow to weaponizing technology to make her lose the campaign.
Clinton refereed to Russia’s intervention in Trump’s 2016 elections and stated she wished investigators would discover Russia’s plot to interfere in the U.S. elections
“I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost,” she said. “Anti-American forces are going after our economy and they are going after our unity as a nation.”
Clinton said that a misleading information from Russia was spread against her using social media networks such as Facebook that weren’t able to control “fake news” circulated on the networks.
“What we saw in this election particularly the first time we had the tech revolution really weaponized politically,” she noted. “It was aimed at me but it’s a much deeper, more persistent effort to literally turn the clock back on so much of what we have achieved as a country.”
Clinton was even brave enough to accuse Trump himself to lead the Russians. When she was asked who was responsible, she answered: “I’m leaning Trump.”
“Putin wants to bring us down,” Clinton remarked. “It’s way beyond me. …. I believe that what was happening to me was unprecedented. Over the summer we went and told anyone we could find that the Russians were messing with the election and we were basically shoo’d away. …. We couldn’t get the press to cover it.”
Clinton didn’t stop at accusations, she raised the issue to a 2010 Supreme Court opening up campaign expenses
“The first time you saw the tech revolution really weaponized politically… you had Citizens United come to its full fruition,” she said. “So unaccountable money flowing in against me, against other Democrats in a way we hadn’t seen. You had effective suppression of votes”
However, in the Citizens United v Federal Election Commission decree, the justices decided that political expenses is protected under the First Amendment.
