TAMPA — Hillary Clinton escalated her attacks on Donald Trump’s character and qualifications for the presidency Tuesday, seizing on renewed scrutiny over an improper political donation that Trump made to Florida’s attorney general as she accused him of concealing “scams.”

The Democratic presidential nominee called on her rival to reveal details about his communication with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R), to whom Trump made a $25,000 political contribution in 2013 as Bondi was considering investigating claims against Trump University, the embattled for-profit education business. Critics say the donation crossed ethical lines.

“Of course, as we know, there was a phone conversation between them. They contradict each other. The American people deserve to know what was said, because clearly the attorney general did not proceed with the investigation,” Clinton told reporters Tuesday during a question-and-answer session on her campaign plane.
