ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential nominee clashed over the role of Wikileaks in the presidential election during the last and final debate in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Clinton said the Russians had engaged in "espionage" in order to swing the election in Donald Trump's favor. Trump said that, while he condemns interference in the election, that Russian President Vladimir Putin has "no respect" for Clinton. Trump has been damaged recently by several accusations of groping women - which he denies - and concerns about his claims that the election will be rigged against him. The debate at the University of Las Vegas Nevada gives the New York businessman perhaps his best remaining chance to sway the dwindling number of Americans who are still undecided about which way to vote in the Nov. 8 election. For Clinton, who leads national polls and in most of the battleground states where the election will likely be decided, the 90-minute debate is a chance to make a closing argument on why she is best suited to succeed President Barack Obama. Tens of millions of voters are expected to tune in.
