    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Former US President George W. Bush stated in a speech at a conference for the US-based think tank Milken Institute in Abu Dhabi that there is pretty clear evidence Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, the USA Today reported.

    Bush also said, however, that "whether (Russia) affected the outcome is another question."

    "It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results," Bush added.
