Clinton criticizes UK government for blocking Russian report

Source: AP

Clinton told the BBC the public needs to know what is in the report by Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee.

The former U.S. presidential candidate says: "I'm dumbfounded that this government won't release the report ... because every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens."

An investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election found illegal interference occurred in a "sweeping and systemic fashion."

4. Looks like Johnson knows how much Russians help conservative politicians around the world

Including his own party. That's why he doesn't want to reveal that before an election.

As well, any damning report on Russia would only help bolster the House's impeachment case on the severity and extent of the danger.

I followed this campaign closely as I have family in Scotland, and the amount of disinformation, deceit and outright falsification of facts about made heads explode.

Shine the light.

7. BREXIT is to speed the breakup of NATO.

I can see why Russia and its ultra conservative chums in Parliament would want to keep it covered up.
