Donald Trump, “Hillary Clinton Cannot Be Trusted with the Presidency”
Donald Trump mounted a powerful effort Saturday to portraying Democrat Hillary Clinton as unfit to lead the country after the latest chapter in her e-Mail controversy came to light late Friday.
“Her criminal action was willful, deliberate, intentional and purposeful,” Donald Trump. “Hillary set up an illegal server for the obvious purpose of shielding her illegal actions from public disclosure and exposure.”
Saturday, Hillary Clinton challenged FBI Director James Comey to provide a full explanation of investigative steps he is taking related to her use of a private e-Mail server, and accused him of “deeply troubling” behavior 10 days before the US elections.
Speaking in Florida, Mrs. Clinton said: “Some of you may have heard about a letter the FBI director sent” on Friday to the US Congress informing it that the agency is again reviewing e-Mails.
Earlier this year, Director Comey decided in July that the FBI was not going to prosecute Mrs. Clinton for her handling of classified materials on a private email server while she was Barack Hussein Obama’s Secretary of State.
Mrs. Clinton said, “It’s not only strange, it’s unprecedented and it’s deeply troubling because voters deserve to get full and complete facts.” She urged Director Comey to “put it all out on the table.”
Fellow Democrats Saturday also worked to pressure Director Comey to provide details on a controversy that dominated the presidential campaigns on Saturday, less than 2 weeks before the November 8 elections..
At a press conference in Columbus, Ohio, the Congressional Black Caucus, comprised of about 45 members of the House of Representatives, nearly all Democrats, urged Director Comey to be more forthcoming.
Sources close to the investigation Friday said the latest e-Mails were discovered as part of a separate probe into Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Noticably, Ms. Huma was not on the campaign plane Saturday.
Anthony Weiner aka Carlos Danger, a disgraced former Democratic US congressman from New York hand picked by the Clinton’s to marry Ms. Huma, is the target of an FBI investigation into sexting messages he sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
Donald Trump pounded away at the new FBI development, devoting a large part of a campaign speech in Golden, Colorado, to attacking Clinton and arguing that, “she is not to be trusted with the Presidency.”
Director Comey has not provided any details on whether the e-Mails now under review are being seen for the 1st time by the FBI or the nature of their contents.
John Podesta says, “There’s no evidence of wrongdoing, no charge of wrongdoing.”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook said Americans had already “factored” what they knew about the e-Mail investigation into how they would cast their ballots.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a tight race for the White House with the latest polls indicating she his suffering badly in the wake of this latest scandal.
During his speech in Golden, Colorado, before flying to Arizona to campaign, Donald Trump accused the Obama Administration’s Justice Department of trying to protect Clinton from prosecution.
“The Loretta Lynch, the US Attorney General did not want anything to happen to Hillary. I wonder why. It’s very sad. Folks, we’re living in a 3rd world country,” Donald Trump said.
Have a terrific weekend
