Hillary called into CNN's "AC360" but still hasn't held a press conference for almost a year. The purpose of the call was to have a safe, one-sided conversation to attack Trump's suggestion the the Clinton Foundation has been used as a "pay-for-play" scheme while she was at the State Department.
"What Trump has said is ridiculous," she said. "My work as secretary of state was not influenced by any outside forces," she lied. "I made policies based on what I thought was right." She said the foundation provided "life-saving work" and claimed that neither she nor Bill had ever drawn a salary like Chelsea's $900,000 annual salary she made right out of college with no experience.
The wannabe "FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!" added, "You know more about the foundation than you know about anything concerning Donald Trump's wealth, his business, his tax returns" [and her deleted emails, her health, the true purpose of Benghazi and her failure there, and the influence bought by Islamic leaders].
Clinton's top campaign staff and allies are on the defensive over the allegations regarding the foundation. They argue that the foundation has helped millions of people around the world, but Trump's business interests carry their own blind spots.
But whether or not the foundation has helped people is not the issue, anymore than Hillary Clinton's intent to criminally share classified information on her private email server was intentional.
In the first case, the issue is that Clinton provided special privileges to those who donated to the foundation and held audience with them as secretary of state.
In the second instance, the issue of intent has nothing to do with the advocating an indictment. Having the private server was, by itself, enough to indict her under the espionage act.
In the past, Trump had donated to the Clinton Foundation, but now believes that while Clinton was secretary of state, those who donated to the foundation were given special access to her. This also appears to be corroborated in the emails recovered by Judicial Watch's FOIA request.
Clinton's last full-blown news conference was in Iowa in December 2015. The reason she refuses to hold news conferences is obvious: the more she talks and answers questions, the worse she does in the polls.
But she will not be able to get another free pass on September 26th when she debates Donald Trump. Hopefully, he will stay on point, put aside the schoolyard banter and try to remain presidential.
And hopefully, she will be found out for who she really is.
