ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slammed President Donald Trump on Monday (October 30), saying the president is "ignoring the intelligence community about an urgent threat" and refusing to stand up to Russia. Her comments came in the wake of indictments of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, on Monday in the federal investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. A third former Trump adviser, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty in early October to lying to the FBI, it was announced on Monday. It was a sharp escalation of U.S. Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller's five-month-old investigation into alleged Russian efforts to tilt the election in Trump's favor and into potential collusion by Trump aides. When asked what she will be for Halloween, Clinton said she was thinking about going as the president.
