Hillary Clinton was in New York City to talk about her economic plans Friday, but ended up spending considerable time defending her email practices as secretary of state.

"It's because there have been a lot of inaccuracies as Congressman Cummings made clear this morning," she said. "Maybe the heat is getting to everybody."

The State Department is looking into whether Clinton emails containing classified information might have been mishandled. Initial reports suggested Clinton herself was the target of the probe.

"This incident shows the danger of relying on reckless, inaccurate leaks from partisan sources," a Clinton statement said.

In New York, Clinton emphasized her compliance in the investigations process.

"We have the responsibility to get this right. I have released 55,000 pages of emails, I have said repeatedly that I will answer questions before the house committee," Clinton said. "We are all accountable to the American people to get the facts right and I will do my part. But I'm also going to stay focused on the issues, particularly the big issues that matter to American families."

Turning to her planned economic speech, the Democratic frontrunner laid out a plan to diminish the influence of "quarterly capitalism," emphasizing long-term growth, innovation and employee benefits. She proposed reforms for capital gains taxes and executive compensation. She also discussed shareholder activism.

Clinton lauded innovative companies such as Google and SpaceX that spend much of their energy on long-term research "that may not help today's bottom line but will help down the line," and other companies like Trader Joe's that invest in their employees.

"You may have heard I'm a fan of Chipotle and its not just because of their burrito bowl," Clinton said. "This past month, the company announced that it would provide paid sick days, paid leave and tuition reimbursement to its part-time employees." Clinton and Huma Abedin were found eating lunch at Chipotle early in the campaign.

Clinton also expressed support for the $15 an hour minimum wage for fast-food workers in Manhattan, adding that the cost of living in NYC is very different than the cost of living in Little Rock, Ark., so the pay should be scaled accordingly. While she did state that "the national minimum wage is the floor and it needs to be raised," Clinton did not give a specific number.
