Hillary Clinton urges more pressure against Russia in latest push

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged the U.S. and other nations to “double down” on pressure against Russia.

Clinton shared the comments during an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” on Sunday

Removal from G20

“I would not allow Russia back into the organizations that it has been a part of. I think there is an upcoming G20 event later in the year. I would not permit Russia to attend,” Clinton said.

“And if they insisted on literally showing up, I would hope there would be a significant, if not total, boycott. The only way that we’re going to end the bloodshed and the terror that we’re seeing unleashed in Ukraine and protect Europe and democracy is to do everything we can to impose even greater costs on Putin,” she added.

More pressure

Clinton also called for more pressure on Russia.

“I think now is the time to double down on the pressure. Let’s not fantasize about what comes next in Russia. Let’s focus on what we’re doing right now to help protect and defend the Ukrainian people’s right to be a free, democratic nation and protect their sovereignty,” Clinton added.

The former Secretary of State also sought to stop blame against Biden for “not doing enough” to help the people of Ukraine.

Clinton supported Biden’s efforts and called for more pressure to stop Russia instead of blaming Biden or accusing him of wrongdoing.

The interesting twist comes after Clinton long sought to blame former President Donald Trump with a false accusation that he was affiliated with Russia’s Alfa Bank.
