Hillary Clinton spoke onstage with NYT's Nicholas Kristof Thursday at the Women in the World Summit, and shared some thoughts about the election and the Trump-Russia connection. The highlights:

On the Trump Administration so far: "I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House, seems to be pursuing."

On how she is doing: "As a person I'm okay, as an American I'm pretty worried."

On the Trump-Russia probe: "I personally favor an independent, nonpartisan investigation."

On striking Assad: "We should take out his air fields, and prevent his ability to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them."

On the day after the election: "The day after the election was devastating…I had to make that decision that, yes I was going to get out of bed."
