“Secretary Clinton, I want to clear up your position on this issue because in the speech you gave to a Brazilian bank for which you were paid $225,000 we have learned from the Wikileaks that you said this, and I want to quote, ‘My dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders—’” Wallace asked.
“If you went on to read the rest of the sentence, I was talking about energy,” Clinton

What clarification is needed more then she was talking about energy policy? She then went on to discuss the source of the information Wikileaks and its possible link to Russian Intelligence Agencies.

The real question you should be asking is why the hell isn't Trump using the wikileaks as ammo, or the clinton foundation for that matter.
The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants.
My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere
I was talking about energy. You know, we trade more energy with our neighbors than we trade with the rest of the world combined," she said. "And I do want us to have an electric grid, an energy system that crosses borders. I think that will be great benefit to us.
We have a suprise in store for @TimKaine and @DonnaBrazile.
There seems to be some rumors flying around that letters/emails/statements are illegitimate.
“Podesta's emails were stolen,” she added, referring to the chairman of Clinton's campaign. “You're so interested in talking about stolen material. You're like — you're like a thief that want to bring into the night the things that you found that was in this data.”
Having to answer legitimate questions from a journalist hardly qualifies as persecution. And while it is true that someone (probably the Russian government, according to U.S. intelligence officials) stole emails from the account of John Podesta, Kelly is not a “thief” simply because she wants to discuss the emails' contents.
The strange back-and-forth made it look as if Brazile had something to hide. Admitting to sharing the question (if, in fact, she did) would not have looked nearly as bad. She could have acknowledged the impropriety but pointed out that it involved a single question in a town hall — not even a head-to-head debate — and had nothing to do with Trump. Instead, she made a mildly bad situation worse.
