Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she is still questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election due to alleged Russian interference in an interview Monday.
Clinton told NPR’s Terry Gross that she would not rule it out if the Russian interference is deeper than what we know now.

“Would you completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?,” Gross asked Clinton.
“No. I would not. I would say,” Clinton responded.
“You’re not going to rule it out?” Gross asked.
“No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Clinton said.
“So what are the means, like, this is totally unprecedented in every way?,” Gross asked.
“It is,” Clinton answered.
In Clinton’s new books released in early September, titled, “What Happened,” she mentioned Russia 333 times. Clinton noted a lot of the same themes she has discussed publicly since her loss to President Donald Trump, including Russian interference in the 2016 election cycle and possible ties between the Trump campaign, Russian intelligence officials and Putin.

The former secretary has an entire chapter of her new book, titled “Trolls, Bots, Fake News, And Real Russians,” to describe some of the other reasons for her unsuccessful bid for the presidency.
