Hillary Clinton still questions the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election results, especially given Russia's interference, and thinks an independent commission is needed to get to the bottom of it.

In an interview with Mother Jones' Ari Berman, Clinton said the result of Moscow's meddling "wasn't just influencing voters, it was determining the outcome."

Get smart: American intelligence agencies, including the CIA, NSA, FBI and the ODNI (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) have all agreed that Russia actively worked to tilt the election in favor of Donald Trump. However, it's still unclear whether their efforts impacted the results.
