Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that "the Russians are still going at us" and that she would have called for "the most thorough investigation" in Moscow's meddling if she had won the presidential election.

"It's important to focus on what happened because lessons can be learned," the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate told Anderson Cooper in an interview to be broadcast later Wednesday on CNN. "But the more important lesson is it will affect our democracy going forward."

Clinton added former FBI Director James Comey's announcement reopening the agency's investigation into her private email use "forever changed history, but that's in the past."

Cooper interviewed Clinton as part of her book tour promoting her new memoir, "What Happened."

"What's important is the fact that the Russians are still going at us. He himself admitted that before Congress," she said, referring to Comey.

Clinton noted that other top U.S. intelligence officials "who knew what the Russians were doing, had been sounding the alarm.

"If I had been elected president under the same circumstances — I lost the popular vote, I squeaked through the Electoral College and evidence came up that the Russians for whatever reason were trying to help me — I would have said on the first day in office: We're going to launch the most thorough investigation.

"No nation, particularly an adversary nation, can mess with our democracy," the former secretary of state said. "I would have had an independent commission.

"I would have done everything I could to get to the bottom of it, because it is not going to stop.

"That's what I'm worried about."
