Do your job.”

Her jibe came after Trump mocked her with the suggestion she “should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren.”

“Only one condition,” he added. “The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ [Congressional] Subpoena!”

Clinton, who lost the election although she received more votes than Trump, last week called the administration investigation into an election it already won “an unfortunate diversion” from the impeachment inquiry into Trump. Democrats charge the president unlawfully attempted to pressure a foreign country to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and Biden’s son Hunter.

Witch Hunt!”

In recent days, Clinton has stepped up her criticism of Trump amid the Ukraine scandal, repeating her belief that foreign interference affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

The investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller established that Russian agents were behind some of the cyberattacks against Democrats in 2016 and attempted to sway the election to Trump, although it reached no conclusion on whether that effort determined the outcome.

“I do think that he knows that he’s an illegitimate president,” she said during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” last Wednesday. “And because of that, he’s very insecure about it.”

“Look what he’s trying to do now,” she continued. “Part of the Ukraine scandal that is slowly coming to light is he’s trying to figure out how to say, no, no, it wasn’t the Russians even though our intelligence community and everyone who has looked at this said yeah, it was the Russians. He’s trying to say no, somehow it was Obama, Hillary, whoever. So he’s obsessed with the fact that he was helped a lot in unprecedented ways.”
