"We are living in a great Netflix special, and I just want the series to end and we're all okay when it does!" Clinton exclaimed Wednesday at the New York Times' DealBook conference. "That's what I'm looking for," the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee added.
 
Clinton's comments came as she weighed in on impeachment and Trump's July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
 
There are "lots of ways" for presidents to discuss corruption, the former secretary said. Clinton told the New York Times' Andrew Ross Sorkin, "[Trump] could care less about corruption in Ukraine — what he wants is dirt on Joe BidenJoe BidenPelosi slams Trump executive order on pre-existing conditions: It 'isn't worth the paper it's signed on' Hillicon Valley: Subpoenas for Facebook, Google and Twitter on the cards | Wray rebuffs mail-in voting conspiracies | Reps. raise mass surveillance concerns Fox News poll: Biden ahead of Trump in Nevada, Pennsylvania and Ohio MORE whether it's real or not. In fact, from everything we know, it's not."
 
In the Zelensky call, which is the focus of the House impeachment inquiry, Trump repeatedly pushed the Ukrainian president to investigate Biden on unfounded corruption allegations, according to notes on the call released in September by the White House. 
 
"The whole thing is so ridiculous that then they would be trying to number one not only put something on Joe Biden, which from everything we know is absolutely untrue, but try to prove that it wasn't Russia that interfered in the 2016 election, it was little Ukraine," Clinton, 72, said.
 
"I do live rent-free in Donald Trump's head, I'm aware of that," the former secretary of State said to laughs from the audience. "But even for that, it's hard to imagine how they could be sitting around at, you know, the golf club or whatever and say, 'Oh we gotta prove that Ukraine interfered."
 
Clinton, speaking in a voice meant to mimic a member of Trump's team, added, "Vladimir just said in my last secret phone call with him, get Ukraine responsible for that!"
