VIDEO-Hillary Clinton Hits Out at Putin, Snowden During UConn Talk | Watch the video - Yahoo Yahoo UK

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former Secretary of State and former US Senator from New York, spoke at the University of Connecticut’s 2014 Edmund Fusco Contemporary Issues Forum on April 23. Clinton told the assembled crowd that she believed Russian president Vladimir Putin had to “pay a price” for Russia’s actions in Ukraine, and hit out at whistleblower Edward Snowden.

“I have a hard time thinking that somebody who is a champ of privacy and liberty has taken refuge in Russia, under Putin’s authority,” she said. “And then he calls into a Putin talk show and says, ‘President Putin, do you spy on people?’ President Putin says, ‘From one intelligence professional to another, of course not.’ ‘Oh thank you so much.’ I have a hard time with that.” Credit: YouTube/UConn
