During an appearance on "CBS This Morning" on Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked by co-anchor Norah O'Donnell, "How do you answer that charge that Sen. Sanders has made that you’re in the pocket of Wall Street or beholden to their interests?”

Chuckling was heard as Clinton responded, saying, "Well, look...anybody who knows me, knows I'm not in the pocket of anyone."

The cameras never showed O'Donnell or co-anchor Charlie Rose laughing, but at least two voices on microphones were heard.

As the laughter waned, Clinton continued her defense, "And, anyone who thinks they can influence me certainly doesn’t know me.”

Clinton went on to state that she has "laid out the most comprehensive, toughest, effective plan to make sure Wall Street never wrecks Main Street again."

Clinton closed her response with an attack on Republicans, claiming "billionaire hedge fund guys, Karl Rove and others" are funding the negative ads seen in Iowa. The democratic candidate went on to characterize these political ads as "a perverse compliment."

Watch for yourself.
