Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during an address at Wellesley College Saturday the Mueller report shows Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election in which she was the Democratic candidate and that "obstruction of justice occurred."

You cannot read the report, chapter and verse, fact after fact, without reaching those conclusions."

Why it matters: Clinton has previously complained of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. But her comments to her alma mater appear to be the first time she's said publicly the Mueller report showed obstruction of justice.

The other side: President Trump has said he doesn't see "any reason" why Russia would interfere in the 2016 election.

Joe Biden twice referred to President Trump as "this guy," and Trump called the former vice president's family "like a vacuum cleaner" for foreign money.

The big picture: The last treaty constraining the U.S. and Russia, New START, is due to expire on Feb. 5, 2021, two weeks after the next U.S. presidential inauguration. For the first time since the height of the Cold War, the nuclear guardrails could come off.
