DailyMail reports Hillary Clinton claims she is the ‘the most investigated innocent person in America’ in a new Hulu documentary about her life.
The former Democratic Presidential candidate even went so far as to say she felt like she’s been persecuted in an offhand remark while cameras were rolling.
Indeed, Hillary appears defiant, defensive and arguably the most candid she has ever been about herself during the 35 hours of interviews.
In the documentary, viewed by DailyMail.com ahead of its release Friday, Hillary does not apologize for the email scandal which plagued her 2016 Presidential run and insisting there was ‘no regulation against it’.
The former Secretary of State called the Benghazi scandal a ‘character assault’ and dismissed criticism of her Wall Street speeches which have earned her and her husband Bill Clinton and estimated $153million.
Hillary says bluntly: ‘That’s how I made some money when I got out of the State Department’.
The four-hour series features extraordinary access to the Clintons’ inner circle and examines Hillary’s public life from her student days to losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
She admits she is a ‘less than ideal politician’ but is a ‘good public official’.
Hillary takes responsibility for her icy relationship with the press and says she ‘knew there was a game to be played and I was striking out all the time’.
At times in the Hulu documentary she puts the blame onto others, rather than examining her own missteps.
Hillary says: ‘Going all the way back to the Whitewater days. I’ve never understood this and I will go to my grave not understanding it. All these things get disproved, but the press, and I’m talking about the major press, they always bite.
‘And I don’t know why. There’s an old joke about an old guy who is walking along the edge of the cliff, he slips and as he’s falling down and he grabs onto a branch and he’s holding on and he’s praying, going “God, God I’ve lived a good life, I’ve done everything I supposed to do…please Lord help me, help me.”
‘And then this voice comes out and says “There’s just something about you that pisses me off”‘.
As Hillary sees it, ‘I am the most investigated innocent person in America.
‘This is not just politics, this is deep cultural stuff’.
