Former Secretary of State and Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton greets supporters during a campaign event in Glen, New Hampshire, July 4. At the New Hampshire event Clinton accused China of launching cyberattacks against U.S. companies and the federal government.

GLEN, New Hampshire — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused China Saturday of stealing commercial secrets and “huge amounts of government information” and of trying to “hack into everything that doesn’t move in America.”

Speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton said she wanted to see the peaceful rise of China.

“But we also have to be fully vigilant, China’s military is growing very quickly, they’re establishing military installations that again threaten countries we have treaties with, like the Philippines, because they are building on contested property,” said Clinton, who was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

“They’re also trying to hack into everything that doesn’t move in America. Stealing commercial secrets … from defense contractors, stealing huge amounts of government information, all looking for an advantage,” she said.
