Hillary Clinton's campaign announced Monday evening that the Democratic nominee will participate in the three presidential debates scheduled before Election Day, and dared Donald Trump to also accept.

"Secretary Clinton looks forward to participating in all three presidential debates scheduled by the independent debate commission," said John Podesta, chairman of Clinton's campaign, in a statement.

"With so much at stake in the fall elections, she believes these debates will provide the American people with an important opportunity to hear from the candidates on issues critical to the country's future," he added.

Podesta went on to question whether Trump, the GOP nominee, would also agree to the terms of the debates or resort to "shenanigans." During the Republican primaries, Trump had often threatened to skip debates, and did so. More recently, Trump slammed Clinton and the Democrats for having a part in scheduling two debates at the same time as NFL football games.

"The only issue now is whether Donald Trump is going to show up to debate at the date, times, places and formats set by the commission last year," Podesta said, adding "through a bipartisan process."

"We will accept the commission's invitation and expect Donald Trump to do the same," he concluded.

The Commission on Presidential Debates has announced three debates scheduled for Sept. 26 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., Oct. 9 at Washington University in St. Louis and Oct. 19 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. One vice presidential debate has also been announced for Oct. 4 at Longwood University in Farmville, Va.
