Gohmert: Only 'Corrupt Dictators' Profit From Office Like Hillary

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

FBI Director James Comey has "adequately rationalized" his decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton "beyond anything that is worthy of him or his office," Rep. Louie Gohmert said Thursday, as evidence was destroyed that could have led to a criminal complaint.

"If evidence is in the possession of one party, and that party destroys the evidence, the jury can be instructed by the judge that that is direct evidence of guilt of the defendant," the Texas Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "So there's all kinds of evidence here and there have been a lot of people that have been treated much more harshly."

And the investigation wasn't only about Clinton's emails, but about her "selling of the office," said Gohmert.

"I don't know anybody but corrupt dictators that have profited from their office the way that Hillary Clinton has," the lawmaker said. "And that was supposed to be under investigation. What happened to that? Just talking about the emails, she didn't profit off the way she did off her position by selling access. That needs to be thoroughly investigated because that stinks to high heaven. If she would profit as a secretary of state to that extent think of how she'd profit about being president of the United States."

Meanwhile, Gohmert said that Clinton should not be allowed access to classified material unless she's elected president.

"We have had people that have been impeached before from federal office and then you get elected and then they get classified material or at least secret material," said Gohmert. "She'd have to be elected and the people would have to say, 'look, we know that you can't be trusted but we want to trust you anyway. We'll give you the presidency.' But not as a candidate. Not with all of these questions looming, not with gross negligence and extreme carelessness. She shouldn't be near anything classified."

Meanwhile, he said there should be no doubt about who to vote for this November.

"Just wake up and smell the coffee," said Gohmert. "It's burnt coffee and it stinks. It's emanating from the Clinton campaign. You know, Donald Trump has made plenty of mistakes, but, you know, I can't see him selling his office the way she has. And intentional disregard, despite what Comey said the evidence is there. Plenty of direct evidence anyway."
