Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin took to Twitter Sunday to weigh in on allegations Russia interfered in the U.S. election in order to help President-elect Donald Trump win.
“Russia's getting out of hand? So says the defeated,” Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, tweeted. “Not to worry... remember I can keep an eye on them from here.”

Palin’s tweet appeared to refer to a remark she made about Russia during an interview she did with ABC News while she was running for vice president.
“They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska,” Palin said at the time.
Palin’s response was mocked on "Saturday Night Live" by Tina Fey, who portrayed Palin as responding, “I can see Russia from my house.” The line has frequently been misattributed to the former governor instead of Fey.
Palin was a vocal supporter of Trump during his candidacy.
