Why Hillary Clinton says about the “Russian threat” to the American elections

The candidate in US presidents from Democratic party Hillary Clinton reiterated the danger of Russian interference in the election campaign and elections. According to the former Secretary of state, this threat, if it occurs, should be eliminated as quickly as possible. This is not the first statement on the participation of the Kremlin in the American presidential race, sounded from the camp of the Democrats.

The concerns of the Clinton campaign to explain: according to a recent CNN poll, trump, albeit slightly — by 2%, but ahead of it in popularity. The former Secretary of state yet ready to vote 43% for her Republican opponent — 45%.

In Moscow, these accusations are called unfounded, and some domestic politicians, in the words of Clinton is a compulsive phobia. What more in the statements of the democratic candidate: paranoia, common sense, or banal desire to spoil the reputation of his opponent Trump, which some US media openly call Russian candidate?

“When Hillary Clinton talks about the intervention of Moscow, about the Kremlin’s involvement in hacking attacks, it all fits in that logic, which it follows for all campaign, noted in an interview with “MK” Director of the Institute of USA and Canada studies Valery GARBUZOV. – The logic of this is that the main threat comes from Russia, therefore the main mission of the US in international relations is to contain Russia. And in such situations no support on the facts or documents is not expected, because it is not about how to prove his loyalty to such reasoning. It is only to give one more fact proving “malice” and “demonic” Russia and Putin.

While such rhetoric plays into the Clinton relationship with trump, who, as we know, sees in the politics of the Russian threat, and openly advocated the establishment of relations with Moscow. But if Clinton won the White house, believe me, she will also say other things. Now she sometimes “blurts out”, declaring its intention to conduct a dialogue with Putin.

Is this an election game, the game is big because coming crucial days and weeks. And the more terrible foe in the face of Russia will be created, so, according to Clinton and her colleagues, will be more likely to attract the inhabitants. Because the American inhabitants will not be in this case to divide them, for example, liberals and conservatives – still see Russia as a country from which comes a certain danger.”
