Hillary Says She’s Like ‘Paula Revere,’ Sounding The Alarm About Russian Meddling


Hillary Clinton compared herself to Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere on Tuesday, saying that she is “Paula Revere” sounding the alarm on Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“I don’t think anybody can with a straight face say that the Russians did not set out to influence our election, and they did so,” Clinton said during an interview on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Clinton appeared on the CBS show to promote her latest book, “What Happened,” a retrospective about how she lost to Donald Trump and who — besides herself — is to blame.

In her interview, Clinton suggested that she has led the push to call out the Russian government and Russian president Vladimir Putin about their involvement in the U.S. election.

“I am saying as clearly as I can — I feel like I’m a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere — I’m trying to sound the alarm about this,” Clinton said to a smattering of laughter and applause.
