‘Russia Is Helping Donald Trump Win The Election’ – Hillary Clinton


Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democrat Presidential nominee and former secretary of state of the United State, has said that attempts by the Russia to influence the U.S. presidential election are designed to help Donald Trump, who has boasted of being close to Russian strongman Vladimir Putin.

 She said this during the second presidential debate held at the Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri on Sunday, October 9, 2016.
“We have never in the history of our country been in a situation where an adversary, a foreign power is working so hard to influence the outcome of the election and believe me, they’re not doing it to get me elected,” she said. “They’re doing it to try to influence the election for Donald Trump.
On Friday, the U.S. formally blamed Russia for recent political hacking attacks, saying they were “intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.” U.S. intelligence officials said they are “confident” that the Russian government directed those attacks on American political organizations, the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Election Security said Friday in a joint statement.
Clinton said that while it isn’t clear why the Russians would be interested in helping the New York businessman, she said Trump should release his tax returns so that the American people can see if there is a conflict of interest.
Trump responded by calling her comments “ridiculous” and that she’s been “caught in a total lie.”
Trump appeared to reject findings from the intelligence community that Russia was behind the hacks, saying “maybe there is no hacking.”
