Clinton on Fall Debates: ‘I’m Gonna Be There’

Hillary Clinton confirmed on Monday that she will attend the presidential debates in the fall.

The Hill reports:

Trump on Friday accused Clinton of rigging the debates so that two coincide with NFL games.

Speaking to the traveling press accompanying her at a stop at Grandpa’s Cheese Barn in Ashland, Ohio on Sunday, Clinton responded to the charge.

“There’s a nonpartisan independent commission that sets up debates,” she said, according to the Washington Examiner.

In a statement on Sunday, the CPD noted that it had begun working on the debate schedule over a year ago, and said that debates had overlapped with NFL games before.

When asked if she thought Trump would skip the debates, Clinton said only: “I’m gonna be there.”

John Podesta, chairman of Hillary for America, tweeted Sunday that the controversy was “just more Trump debate malarkey.”
