Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonCornyn spox: Neera Tanden has 'no chance' of being confirmed as Biden's OMB pick Groups seek to get Black vote out for Democrats in Georgia runoffs Biden's political position is tougher than Trump's MORE on Tuesday said she doesn't remember ever commenting -- joking or otherwise -- about using a drone strike against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.


“I don't recall any joke,” Clinton said, when asked Tuesday at a press conference in Pennsylvania.

“It would have been a joke, if it had been said, but I don't recall that.”

The website TruePundit posted a report Sunday that alleged Clinton had in 2010 spoken of a drone strike against Assange.

The report cited State Department sources and claimed Clinton had said: "Can't we just drone this guy?" 

Many reporters online have questioned TruePundit, the source of the original report.

New York Magazine published a post Monday night that it said explained the “viral rumor that Hillary Clinton wanted to drone-strike Julian Assange.”

“I'm reticent to comment on anything that the WikiLeaks people have said. They've made a lot of accusations in the past," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told a reporter at WTTG Fox 5 DC on Monday. 

WikiLeaks tweeted a Washington Examiner report about the video on Monday, and on Sunday posted a screen grab from a TruePundit report.
