Clinton takes five questions from the press

Hillary Clinton found out Tuesday what happens when a presidential candidate goes almost a month without taking questions from the press: a feeding frenzy of reporters.

The former secretary of State faced a barrage of questions after a campaign event in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and answered questions on topics ranging from Iraq to the Clinton Foundation to her family’s wealth.

The brief Q&A came after reporters have focused on their lack of access to Clinton in recent weeks—before Tuesday, Clinton had answered just 13 questions during the campaign, by NPR’s count. That relative silence from Clinton has allowed a spate of news stories, ranging from questions about the Foundation’s financial dealings to the release of her emails, to pass by without comment from the candidate herself.
