The UK government said it needs more time to examine the report before releasing it to the public.

Following the U.K. government's decision not to release a report on alleged Russian influence in British politics, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she’s “dumbfounded” by the move.

Boris Johnson's government is now putting its focus on he coming general election instead of 'Russia.' 

Clinton told the BBC that the public needs to know what is in the report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee.

She then slammed the decision to withhold the report as “inexplicable and shameful.”

Parliament’s intelligence and security committee's probe into claims Russia interfered with Britain’s democratic process reportedly includes examining whether Moscow attempted to meddle with the 2016 Brexit vote, and the general election in 2017.

“I’m dumbfounded that this government won’t release the report … because every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens,” Clinton said.

Clinton added that she couldn't understand why the report wasn't released.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today program, Clinton said:

"There is no doubt — we know it in our country, we have seen it in Europe, we have seen it here — that Russia, in particular, is determined to try to shape the politics of western democracies."

“Not to our benefit, but to theirs.”

According to another interview on BBC Radio 5 Live, Clinton stated:

“I find it inexplicable that your government will not release a government report about Russian influence. Inexplicable and shameful.”

Clinton also spoke with British left-wing publication, The Guardian:

“Who do they think they are that they would keep information like that from the public, especially before an election?" she said.

"Well, I’ll tell you who they think they are. They think that they are the all-powerful, strong men who should be ruling,”

Clinton is currently in the Britsh capital with her daughter Chelsea for the launch of their co-authored book – The Book Of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories Of Courage And Resilience.

Clinton said she could not understand British politics.

“I am, as a great admirer, concerned because I can’t make sense of what is happening.”

“In my own country as well. I don’t understand it…. It’s hard to figure out exactly where you’re headed.”
