She adds: "I think that we should just leave that behind us and whoever they want to blame for anything, they're going to have to find somebody else".

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the "legitimacy" of President Trump's victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a "disinformation campaign". "Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!" he said.

Clinton lamented how "we don't have a method for contesting" the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to "get to the bottom of what happened".

Although Clinton has said that her career in active politics is "over", Trump still took a jibe at the former Democratic Presidential candidate and encouraged her to run again in 2020.

In an interview on a radio station WABC in New York, Clinton valued Friday the fact that Franken has at least accepted full "accountability".

Prior to her loss, Clinton repeatedly expressed fears that Trump and his supporters would not accept the outcome of the election were Trump to be defeated.

Clinton even argued that Trump refusing to say he would accept the results of the election was a threat to American democracy. Her recent interview shows that she continues to reject the reality that she lost the presidential election.

Interviewer Ari Berman asked, "So between the Republican voter suppression you talked about and Russian interference, do you think it was a legitimate election?"
