Hillary Clinton Sends a Warning About Putin’s Next Move

Hillary Clinton acknowledged that Russian President Vladimir Putin has notched some victories against the US and issued a warning that he still poses a significant threat.

“Keep an eye on him, because he’s not done,” Clinton, the losing 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, said in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria: GPS.”
Clinton cited the intelligence community’s assessment in January that Putin directly ordered a Russian campaign to meddle in the 2016 presidential election to hurt Clinton and boost the Trump campaign.
She said Putin had gotten some of what he wanted in President Donald Trump, but that Russia is not getting as much as it otherwise could out of the US, due to the nation’s system of checks and balances.
close dialogue.
Clinton said she believed a grudge against her had motivated Putin, but that the Russian leader is also conducting a broader, ideological battle with the US.
“I think that Putin’s campaign against us is much more about American democracy,” Clinton said. She said Putin hoped to increase polarization in the US.
“He wants an America that is divided from within,” Clinton said.
Russia has repeatedly denied that it attempted to meddle in the 2016 US election, and Trump has wavered on the US intelligence community’s conclusions.
