“Yes, I am famously under-scrutinized,” Clinton quipped in a tweet.

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee's tweet came in response to Giuliani accusing several media outlets of "going after" him amid scrutiny of his dealings with Ukraine.

House Democrats subpoenaed Giuliani on Monday to turn over documents to the House Intelligence, Oversight and Reform and Foreign Affairs committees.

The efforts also come amid revelations that Trump urged the Ukrainian president to speak with Giuliani about launching an investigation into Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

“WP [Washington Post], NBC, and CNN are going after me because I’m the messenger, and covering up the message, Dem corruption," Giuliani asserted in a tweet Monday.

"Meanwhile, they have yet to ask Biden difficult questions because he is protected and immune like the Clintons and crooked Clinton Foundation!” he added.

Clinton repeatedly faced questions during her 2016 presidential bid about donations to her family's nonprofit organization while she was serving as secretary of State.

Her tweet Tuesday came a day after Clinton also spoke out about a whistleblower complaint filed against Trump over his call with Ukraine's president in late July.

On Monday, she called Trump "a corrupt human tornado" in a tweet.
