Hillary Clinton: I won’t resign if indicted for email scandal

Hillary Clinton is urging Democrats to back her campaign in a bid to keep the focus on her health and the presidential race ahead.

“I will continue to be the strongest, bravest, and most resilient candidate the Democratic Party has ever seen.

I am not going anywhere,” Clinton said in an address to the Democratic National Convention on Thursday.”

We can’t be defeated by an empty threat or a desperate desire to score points,” she added.

The former first lady, senator and secretary of state will take the stage Friday morning to take the helm of her presidential campaign, a move that has some Republicans questioning whether she’s willing to run a credible campaign.

Clinton, a former first daughter and daughter-in-law, has maintained a steady pace of public appearances since leaving the White House last week and a rally in New Hampshire this week was a way for her to hammer home the need to remain focused on her campaign.

She also addressed her health, a subject she’s often touched on in her speeches and has frequently mentioned in the past.

The first lady is in the midst of a tough month that includes an attack in the first week of her presidency on the House Republicans’ efforts to pass the American Health Care Act, a proposal that would expand health coverage.

Her remarks Thursday were an attempt to reassure Democrats about her health status, but it was unclear if she was referring to her condition or her own.

The former first family has spent weeks in constant physical and emotional stress following her concussion, which she suffered in October while traveling on Air Force One.

On Thursday, she gave a speech in which she told the crowd: “I’ve been through so much.

My health has been under tremendous attack.

I’ve been in the middle of all of this.

I can’t wait to get back out there.”

Clinton said she’s focused on making sure Americans can get the care they need to live well and make the most of the time they have left.

“For too long, the government has been able to dictate to us what we can and can’t do.

Now it’s time for Congress to do their job and pass a health care reform bill that provides a level playing field for every American,” she said.

The Clintons have said the Affordable Care Act is necessary to ensure coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

In September, the former president and his wife, former first ladies Michelle and Hillary Clinton, endorsed the bill.

Clinton has also pushed back against Republican attempts to repeal the Affordable Act, saying she’s confident the GOP will work with Democrats on health care.

“There are some Republicans who have tried to gut the Affordable Health Care Reform Act, and I’m proud of that,” Clinton told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

“But if you’re talking about the Republican Party, they are not going to repeal Obamacare,” she continued.

“So I think that the fight over health care will be just as important to them as it is to us.”

The Clintons are also expected to hold fundraisers in the coming weeks and continue to hold events to raise money for the Democratic nominee.
