Embarassing of UK not to publish Russian meddling Report-Hillary Clinton

Britain’s failure to publish a parliamentary report on alleged Russian meddling is “inexplicable and shameful”, former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday (Nov 12).

The report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) has been cleared by the security services but it has not yet been given approval for publication by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Downing Street office, meaning it will not be released before a Dec 12 election.

Britain has accused Russia of meddling and trying to interfere in Western elections. Moscow has repeatedly denied any meddling and says the West is gripped by anti-Russian hysteria.

“I find it inexplicable that your government will not release a government report about Russian influence. Inexplicable and shameful,” she told the BBC. “Every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens.”
