On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton has expressed “shameful” that the British Government hadn’t published a delayed report of the Parliament about the interference of Russia in the country’s politics ahead of elections in December. 

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson-led Government has declined claims that it was repressing the report to avoid a scandal before the forthcoming elections. 

Ms. Clinton was quoted saying, “every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens.”

The defeated Presidential Candidate has continued that there was “no doubt” that Russia is “determined to try to shape the politics of western democracies.”

Ms. Clinton further stated, “not to our benefit, but to theirs.” 

She was defeated by Republican President Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election. 

She told sources, “I find it inexplicable that your government will not release a government report about Russian Influence. Inexplicable and Shameful.” 

The UK Parliament was previously informed by the Intelligence and Security Committee was sent to the British Prime Minister on October 17, for approval. 

The investigation into suspected Russian meddling actions in the democratic process of Britain has allegedly included tests whether Moscow has tried to interfere in the 2016 Brexit Vote and the 2017 General Election. 

Moscow has been charged with spearheading advanced disinformation campaigns across the globe to further its interests. 

The Intelligence and Security Committee inspects the work done by intelligence agencies, submits its report to the government ahead of publication to avert the unintended release of sensitive formation. 

MI5 and the Intelligence and Security Committee’s Chairman have recommended that PM Johnson is withholding the release of the 50-pages report ahead of the forthcoming elections. 

Jonathan Evans is the head of MI5 from the year 2007 to 2013 has called on the British Government to explain the delay. 

Earlier, Foreign Office Minister Chris Pincher has said that the report is going through “an intensive security review.”

Mr. Pincher has further played down concerns, saying there is “no evidence” to propose there has been any successful involvement of Russia in the electoral system of Britain.
