Chelsea Clinton can’t say for sure if Russian meddling was what doomed her mother in the presidential election.
“I think we don’t yet know the answer to anything around Russia and I think we all deserve those answers,” Clinton said during an interview on CBS Tuesday. “I think it’s clear there are lots of questions that have yet to be answered and I think Americans deserve an answer to those questions.”
When asked if her mother will run for president for a third time, Chelsea said she is “doing great,” but she doubts she’ll run again.
“I have no idea,” she said. “I don’t think so. I think right now she’s focused on her book. She’s focused — thankfully — on her grandchildren. She’s focused on what she can do help support work she’s been engaged in for longer than I’ve been alive around children, around women, around families. I’m just really grateful to have more time with her now than I’ve had in a long time.”
“She’s clearly looking to encourage many of, particularly the young people who are thinking about running for office, that they should keep thinking about that and throw their hats into the ring,” she continued.
“She is trying to figure out what she can do to help support so many organizations, like Planned Parenthood who are standing on the front lines to defend our fundamental rights. I am just really grateful that she’s out there doing that work because I believe as strongly today as I did last year and the year before about what we need to be doing to protect and advance progress.”
