Hillary Clinton Hits Rudy Giuliani With a Heavy Dose of Sarcasm

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton employed more than a little snark after President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested Democratic hopeful Joe Biden was protected "like the Clintons."

Immediately hitting back at Giuliani, who has made numerous media appearances discussing the Ukraine whistleblower allegations, Clinton shared a link to the lawyer's comments on Twitter and wrote a post dripping with sarcasm.

"Yes, I am famously under-scrutinized," Clinton wrote on Twitter in response to Giuliani's tweet.

The former Mayor of New York City had written: "WP, NBC, and CNN are going after me because I'm the messenger, and covering up the message, Dem corruption. Meanwhile, they have yet to ask Biden difficult questions because he is protected and immune like the Clintons and crooked Clinton Foundation!"

Giuliani and Trump have repeatedly insisted that Biden and his son Hunter should be investigated, indeed Trump's desire to see Biden looked into is the subject of the whistleblower complaint that prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to launch an impeachment inquiry last week.

During a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump, according to a summary released by the White House, said: "There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me."

Responding to the whistleblower complaint, Trump also tweeted: "I have informed @GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy and all Republicans in the House that I fully support transparency on so-called whistleblower information but also insist on transparency from Joe Biden and his son Hunter, on the millions of dollars that have been quickly and easily taken out of Ukraine and China. Additionally, I demand transparency from Democrats that went to Ukraine and attempted to force the new President to do things that they wanted under the form of political threat."

And the president and Giuliani have both brought up Clinton in tweets about the ongoing inquiry—with Giuliani's recent suggestion that the former presidential hopeful was protected drawing a scathing response from Clinton herself, particularly given that she has openly blamed her election defeat in part on former FBI chief James Comey.

Just days ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Comey contacted members of Congress to let them know he was re-opening the probe into Clinton's use of a personal email server during her time as secretary of state, contacting members of Congress again before the election to let them know the probe had once again been closed.
