The former secretary of State, who has run for president twice before, has weighed in on Trump recently while on a tour to promote her new book.
In his tweet earlier Tuesday, Trump mocked Clinton with his typical insult against his former political rival, calling her "the Crooked one."
"I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth WarrenIn defense of share buybacks Democrats urge Biden to go all in with agenda in limbo In Washington, the road almost never taken MORE," Trump wrote, referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has recently risen in polls of the crowded Democratic presidential field.
"Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting 'C' Subpoena!" he added.
Clinton has repeatedly said she is not going to run in the 2020 election, telling New York’s News 12 in March “I’m not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”
Clinton has been increasingly speaking out against Trump recently after the House launched its formal impeachment inquiry amid a whistleblower complaint alleging he solicited foreign help in the 2020 election from Ukraine by asking the nation to investigate former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenPelosi sets Thursday vote on bipartisan infrastructure bill Pressure grows to cut diplomatic red tape for Afghans left behind President Biden is making the world a more dangerous place MORE, a Democratic front-runner.
A partial memo of a July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky released by the White House shows Trump asking Zelensky to “look into” Biden with help from his administration.
Trump has denied anything was inappropriate about the call, though it came just days after he delayed hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. aid to Ukraine.
The whistleblower complaint also alleges the Trump administration asked White House officials to place a transcript of the July call on a highly classified server.
When Trump asked China and Ukraine to investigate Biden in comments to reporters last week, Clinton chimed in on Twitter.
“Someone should inform the president that impeachable offenses committed on national television still count,” she said.
