Trump: ‘Our Adversaries Almost Certainly Have a Blackmail File on Hillary Clinton’

donald-trumpDonald Trump issued a lengthy statement today on the FBI Hillary Clinton announcement about no recommended charges in the case of her emails after his initial tweets about the “rigged system.”

And he declares pretty forcefully, “Our adversaries almost certainly have a blackmail file on Hillary Clinton, and this fact alone disqualifies her from service.”

He touts how James Comey debunked several lies Clinton told on the campaign trail about her emails and how Clinton was “hiding her corrupt dealings from investigators.”

Trump says that the decision not to indict her is all clearly about politics as usual:

But because of our rigged system that holds the American people to one standard and people like Hillary Clinton to another, it does not look like she will be facing the criminal charges that she deserves.

Bill Clinton didn’t accidentally run into the Attorney General on the airport tarmac last week in Phoenix. Hillary Clinton didn’t accidentally sneak into the FBI during one of the country’s biggest holiday weekends to testify on her illegal activities, something that wouldn’t be afforded to others under investigation (and on a Saturday of all days). It was no accident that charges were not recommended against Hillary the exact same day as President Obama campaigns with her for the first time.
