Saltzgaver and another attendee who asked not to be named said Clinton made the comparison between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Hitler, according to Buzzfeed.

"She talked about how what Putin is doing now is similar to what Hitler did, essentially providing these ethnic Russians in the Crimea region access back to Russia," the second attendee told Buzzfeed.

Saltzgaver stressed though that Clinton was not making a direct comparison of Putin to Hitler.

"She said, however, that while that makes people nervous, there is no indication that Putin is as irrational as the instigator of World War II," Saltzgaver added.

Clinton made the comments at a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club hosted by the law firm Keesal, Young & Logan.
