Hillary Clinton takes one of most ironic Trump cheap shots imaginable at Chicago book signing

Hillary Clinton is the consummate saleswoman.

The former Democratic presidential candidate dodged a question about recent indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation, referring to a “great chapter” in her book instead.

At a Chicago signing event for her book, “What Happened,” she was asked about the indictment against former Donald Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

“You can find out what happened and what is still happening,” she laughed, holding up a copy of her book.

“I have a great chapter about Russia in here,” she responded to the question about the indictments as about 1,000 fans lined up for the book signing at The Book Stall in Winnetka. By her side was longtime Clinton aide, Huma Abedin.

The indictments were revealed Monday against Manafort and his associate Rick Gates, who both pleaded not guilty to charges of financial crimes and lobbying. The guilty plea by former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was also announced Monday.

But while Clinton avoided answering questions at the book store, she may not be laughing for long as revelations continue to surface about the role of her campaign and the Democratic National Committee in funding the infamous Trump dossier.

Clinton denied knowing about the dossier The DNC and the Clinton campaign allegedly paid opposition-research firm Fusion GPS to commission the dossier which contained unverified claims about the Trump campaign and ties to Russia.

The president questioned why the spotlight has not turned on Clinton and Democrats amid the latest revelations.

Clinton may also want to shelve her comedy routine as Mueller’s probe reached out to include mega-lobbyist Tony Podesta, the brother of former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. He stepped down from his lobbying firm, the Podesta Group, after Mueller’s investigation revealed that Manafort worked with the firm on a pro-Ukrainian lobbying effort.

The Podesta Group also lobbied for Uranium One, which was sold to a Russian energy company giving it control over one-fifth of America’s uranium-mining capacity.
