Hillary Clinton says Putin ‘wanted to defeat me’ in 2016 polls
Hillary Clinton was recently in Germany to attend the Berlin International Film Festival for director Nanette Burstein’s Hulu documentary series “Hillary.” During the press conference, the former U.S. Secretary of State answered a few questions about supporting Bernie Sanders, Harvey Weinstein's conviction and the Russian interference in the 2016 polls.
While her opponents in the 2016 election did a “very good job” of distorting her public image among American voters, Hillary Clinton does not believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin bought into her opponent’s propaganda. “He knew exactly who I was and what I would do to stand up for freedom and decency and to create a strong relationship among Western democracies, particularly across the Atlantic. To defend Europe to defend NATO,” Clinton said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He knew exactly who I was.”
The reason why Putin interfered, according to Hillary, is that he did not want her to win. “So when he ordered his intelligence service to go after me and say anything negative they could possibly say — and we have intercepts of quotes from the generals to their operatives in the intelligence agencies to do just that — it wasn't because he was fooled or didn't understand me,” Clinton explained. “It was because he wanted to defeat me.”
She also supported the jury’s decision of convicting Harvey Weinstein of rape and criminal sexual assault. “I think the jury's decision speaks for itself,” Clinton said. “It was time for an accounting, and the jury clearly found that.”
Hillary downplayed Weinstein’s support for her 2016 presidential campaign. According to Clinton, the film producer “supported every Democratic campaign.” For instance, Weinstein reportedly supported the presidential bid of John Kerry as well as Barack Obama.
Hillary Clinton might not be a Bernie Sanders fan but she assures that she will support him if he is nominated this year. The more important thing for her is to remove Donald Trump from the Oval Office.
“I'll wait and see who we nominate, and I will support the nominee,” Hillary said. “And I think it is imperative that we retire the incumbent.”
