Speaking in an interview for the first time since she failed to snag the White House, Hillary Clinton said she is "deeply concerned" about allegations of Russian interference during the election, reiterating that there needs to be a non-partisan investigation to deter future meddling, according to the Associated Press.

At a New York summit on women's issues, the former presidential candidate said Russian involvement was meant to stir "distrust and confusion."

WATCH | Hillary Clinton said "there's a lot to be concerned about" during a New York summit.

She said, referring to President Vladimir Putin, "I think what was done to us was an act of aggression and it was carried out by a foreign power under the control of someone who has a deep desire to dominate Europe and send us into a tailspin."

In a one-on-one conversation with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, Clinton also touched upon reflections from the election, the conflict in Syria, and the book she intends to publish. She added that misogyny played a role in the election's outcome, but, nonetheless, encouraged women who want to run for office to grow a thick skin.

"I want you to be involved, I'm thrilled by all the activity that's going on," she said.

On the Republican's failed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, Clinton said she doesn't know "that any of them had ever even read the bill" or "understood how it worked."

And just in case rumors are circulating, she said she doesn't think she'll ever run for office again.
