Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has alleged that the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is engaged in a “massive criminal enterprise” and “cover up”.
Trump warned that Hillary is likely to be under investigation for a long time and that the country deserves a government that can go to work on day one.
“Hillary is engaged in massive criminal enterprise and cover-up. She created an illegal e-mail server to shield her criminal activity and corrupt pay for play,” Trump told his supporters at an election rally in Atkinson, New Hampshire. “She illegally transmitted confidential information. She illegally destroyed federal records, including 33,000 e-mails, which she deleted after getting that subpoena from Congress. If she were to win, it would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis, what a mess,” he said.
“I mean, we went through it with him, with the impeachment and the lies, aren’t we tired of this stuff?” he asked the audience, which responded by a big “Yes!”. He said the Democratic nominee is likely to be under investigation for a long time. “America deserves a government that can go to work on day one and get it done,” Trump said.
He told the audience that the FBI now has multiple open criminal investigations against Clinton. This includes the discovery of another 650,000 e-mails and also a far-reaching criminal investigation into her pay for play scheme at the State Department. “Last night, CBS News just confirmed that the 650,000 e-mails include brand new e-mails not previously seen by authorities,” he said.
“Hillary Clinton lied to Congress under oath when she said she turned over all her work-related e-mails, and that she didn’t send classified information on her illegal server. Meaning, she may now face major problems for perjury,” he said and asked how can Clinton manage this country, when she can’t even manage her e-mails?
“All she had to do was follow the rules and assume people are watching or listening, who cares right? What a mess, and for what? Now we’re going to have her running the country for four years?” he said as the audience booed.
“Now she is going to run the country. She will be under investigation for years, she will be with trials,” he added. Referring to the emails that has been released by Wikileaks, Trump said even Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta has said in those emails that she has bad instincts.
“The FBI agents say their investigation is likely to yield an indictment, however the report also shows that the political leadership at the Department of Justice is trying as hard as it can to protect their angel, Hillary Clinton,” Trump alleged.
