Trump Breaking News Network – Trump: FBI Was ‘Nice’ To Hillary Clinton, Who Was ‘Guilty As Hell’
In the wake of the announcement by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General that it will investigate the actions of the FBI prior to the presidential election, President-elect Donald Trump on Friday tweeted out his reaction to comments by Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign blaming her loss on the bureau and its director, James Comey.
In reality, Trump said, the FBI was “VERY nice” to Clinton, who was “guilty as hell” and “should never have been allowed to run” for president.
Clinton supporters have said Comey blunted the momentum of Clinton’s campaign when he publicly announced in late October that the FBI was reopening its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
Comey said in a statement Thursday he supports the investigation of his actions.
In his tweet Friday, Trump said Clinton lost the election “because she campaigned in the wrong states – no enthusiasm!” He has made similar comments before, including tweets earlier this month crediting the passion of his supporters for his victory.
On Thursday, Clinton supporters praised the inspector general’s probe into the FBI’s actions.
“This is highly encouraging and to be expected given Director Comey’s drastic deviation from Justice Department protocol,” said Brian Fallon, a former Clinton campaign spokesman.
However, the limited scope of the inspector general’s investigation caught the attention of one Republican lawmaker.
“It’s good to hear that the Inspector General agreed to my request to look at multiple concerns that I raised throughout the investigation,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
“Conspicuously absent, though, is any specific reference to the Attorney General’s failure to recuse herself from the probe, particularly after her meeting with former President Clinton. It’s in the public interest to provide a full accounting of all the facts that led to the FBI and Justice Department’s decision-making regarding the investigation,” he said.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch had met privately with Bill Clinton days before the FBI announced that his wife, Hillary Clinton, would not be charged with any crime. That meeting led to accusations that the lack of charges against Clinton was a politically influenced decision.
