Russia's election meddling act of aggression: Hillary Clinton

Share

NEW YORK ― In her first sit-down interview since the presidential election at Tina Brown's Women in the World Summit, Hillary Clinton told New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof about the plans she has for her forthcoming book.

In her first interview since losing the 2016 USA election, Clinton said the prospect of electing the first woman president was exciting for some Americans, but threatening to others.

Trump said in an interview with New York Times reporters Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman on Wednesday that the controversy surrounding Susan Rice and her alleged requests to "unmask" Trump associates would become a "massive, massive story". "It is essential that the world does more to deter Assad from committing future murderous atrocities", the Houston Chronicle reported Clinton said Friday.

The vastly experienced Clinton won the popular vote, but lost the crucial electoral college to the real estate tycoon who had never previously held public office. She said that he wants to "sow distrust and confusion" by influencing the election. "As an American, I'm pretty anxious", she said.

Federal Judge Approves Consent Decree To Overhaul Baltimore Police
District Judge James Bredar signed the so-called consent decree Friday, calling the plan "comprehensive, detailed and precise". City officials, including Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, have voiced their support for the agreement.

Other topics up for discussion included whether or not she'd consider running for office again.

"What was done in that election was unprecedented", she said of Russia's reported hacking into Democratic web servers to steal personal communications. And he's not exactly fond of strong women so you add that together and that's pretty much where it leads. "Although he [Putin] did shake hands with me", said Clinton in a clear reference to Trump's refusal to shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the latter's visit.

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.

Clinton said it was "somewhat gratifying" to see the GOP fail to pass its bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare last month, while also panning Russia's intervention in the campaign.

North Korea calls U.S. strikes on Syria 'unforgivable'
China, North Korea's largest military and trade partner, has shown increasing annoyance with Pyongyang. The United States maintains about 28,500 servicemembers in South Korea and some 50,000 in Japan.

But her remarks on the election, and the role gender discrimination played in it, made headlines.

She said: "I think we should have been more willing to confront Assad".

She said she was perplexed by the Trump administration's "commitment to hurt so many people" by temporarily banning people from six predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States and by proposing to take away health insurance from millions of Americans.

"We are considering an appropriate response for this chemicals weapons attack", Tillerson said.

Luke Maye's last-second shot sends North Carolina to Final Four
Kentucky's freshman point guard DeAaron Fox and sophomore forward Isaac Humphries were the Wildcat's representatives on the team. Lost in all of the ecstasy that results from a last-second game winning shot is just how much agony the opposing team endures.

Clinton, even as secretary of state, was a proponent of more direct action in Syria at the time, despite Obama's apprehension about military action in the country.
