Trump Calls For Special Prosecutor to Investigate Clinton’s Emails

On Monday Donald Trump called for a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s pay-for-play scheme. Trump called for it in the wake of the State Department confirming that the FBI had uncovered nearly 15,000 additional emails that Hillary did not turn over with her official State Department ‘work emails.’ The documents were not among the 30,000 work-related emails turned over to the State Department by her attorneys in December 2014.

“If you are not prepared to put American workers first, then you should not hold or seek public office… No issue better illustrates how corrupt my opponent is than her pay-for-play scandals as Secretary of State… Hillary Clinton said she turned over all of her work related emails. She testified that to Congress under penalty of perjury. Now we learn about another 15,000 emails she failed to turn over have just been discovered… Colin Powell just proved again how dishonest Hillary Clinton is after he busted her for trying to pin her email scandal on him – one more Hillary Clinton lie,” Trump said.

Trump continued by laying out the charges on the Clinton Foundation, “The Foundation donors included corporations and individuals with significant matters before the State Department. And then either Hillary Clinton herself or one of her closest aides took action favorable to the donor… The Clintons’ made the State Department into the same kind of Pay-to-Play operations as the Arkansas Government was: pay the Clinton Foundation huge sums of money and throw in some big speaking fees for Bill Clinton and you got to play with the State Department.”

“The amounts involved, the favors done and the significant numbers of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a Special Prosecutor. After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewash of the Clinton email crimes, they certainly cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton’s crimes,” Trump said.

A special prosecutor would be the only opportunity for a real investigation, but under Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch it’s unlikely.
