Hillary Clinton says if elected president she will make clear that the U.S. "will treat cyberattacks just like any other attack."

Clinton says in a speech Wednesday to the American Legion convention in Cincinnati that the U.S. needs to "step up our game" and be able to defend itself against those who "go after us."

She blamed Russia for hacking into the Democratic National Committee and perhaps "even some state election systems."

Clinton says the United States will be ready with "serious political, economic and military responses" to any cyberattacks.

WikiLeaks released damaging emails during the Democratic National Convention that implied the DNC had favored Clinton over primary rival Bernie Sanders.
