Bloomberg: Clinton Says Possible Russian Meddling a Serious Concern
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speaks to reporters on her campaign plane enroute to Iowa on September 5, 2016
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said potential Russian meddling in the U.S. election is a serious threat that must be addressed quickly and firmly.
Calling it “almost unthinkable” that a foreign adversary would attempt to manipulate the American political system, Clinton said it appears that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his aides believe they will get some benefit.
"We have to be doubly on guard to protect our electoral system at all levels and we have to make it clear that we’re not going to let anyone interfere with the decisions of the American people," she told reporters traveling with her by airplane between campaign events in the Midwest.
Clinton didn’t outline any specific steps she would take to warn Russia or block the nation from interfering. She cited President Barack Obama’s remarks on Monday in China that the U.S. has extensive capabilities, both for defense and offense, but that all nations should guard against igniting a cyber cold war.
