Hillary Clinton Says She Doesn't 'Recall Any Joke' About Droning Assange

While Hillary Clinton could remember every word Donald Trump's ever said during their recent debate, she says she doesn't "recall any joke" about droning Julian Assange.

From Politico:
Responding to unconfirmed allegations circulating on right-wing websites, Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she does not remember ever joking about targeting the founder of WikiLeaks in a drone strike.

The conservative website True Pundit cited anonymous “State Department sources” in a report on Sunday to claim that Clinton in 2010 suggested to some staff members that the U.S. “drone” Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, whose website had embarrassed the U.S. when it published diplomatic cables, among other documents.

“Can’t we just drone this guy?” the website claimed Clinton had said.

WikiLeaks, an anti-secrecy organization that publishes documents from governments, corporations and other sources, tweeted out the quote from the True Pundit report on Monday. No mainstream news outlets have confirmed the claim.

“I don't recall any joke,” Clinton said, when asked about the allegations at a press conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday. “It would have been a joke, if it had been said, but I don't recall that.”
Indeed, it was also a "joke" when she celebrated the sadistic murder of Muammar Gaddafi.

Before hearing this denial, I was quite skeptical of TruePundit's report.

Now, I'd say it's pretty much guaranteed it's true.
