    Hillary Clinton claims that the Russian government is launching attacks on US accounts in a bid to influence elections.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian government is launching attacks on US accounts in a bid to influence elections, US Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said on Sunday, claiming that WikiLeaks were also the Kremlin's plot.

    "The Kremlin, meaning Putin and the Russian government, are directing the attacks, there are hacking on American accounts to influence our elections. And WikiLeaks is part of that," Clinton said.

    She added that the United States had never been in a situation before where an "adversary" foreign power was working so hard to influence the US elections.
