So, this could not be a more threatening scenario,” the New York Times said, quoting Clinton as saying in an audio being hacked from Democratic Party’s computers. “Pakistan is running full speed to develop tactical nukes in their continuing hostility with India,” the former secretary of state told a close door fundraiser in Virginia in February, the paper reported, citing 50-minute audio that appeared on the website of Washington Free Beacon. During the fund raiser, responding to a question on modernisation of nuclear weapons, the daily said, Clinton went beyond the que…

Sources have said the video isn't a hall print and is definitely better than most ones available online. The audio is, again, average and one may need earphones to get a clear listen.
