Former acting Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile voiced her agreement Tuesday with Hillary Clinton’s judgment that President Donald Trump was not legitimately elected in 2016.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews said it was “confounding” that Clinton would call Trump’s election illegitimate, but Brazile said Clinton is right to draw attention to Russian interference. Matthews pushed her to say whether she actually agrees with Clinton, and Brazile continued to express doubts about the election.

The role of social media, this coordination between WikiLeaks and possibly the Trump campaign—we need to get to the bottom of it.”

Matthews pressed her to say whether she agreed with Clinton, and Brazile answered in the affirmative.

“My personal view is that it was not a legitimate election,” Brazile said.
