Donald Trump asserted Tuesday that the FBI's refusal to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton in the email problem amounted to a bribe because the former secretary of state said that she would consider keeping Attorney General Loretta Lynch in office should she win the White House in November.

"She said today that we may consider the attorney general to go forward," Trump told a rally in Raleigh, N.C. "That's like a bribe, isn't it?

"Isn't it sort of a bribe? I think it's a bribe.

"If she wins, she's going to consider extending the attorney general," the presumptive Republican nominee said. "I'm not knocking the attorney general. What I'm saying is how can you say that? It's a bribe.

"The attorney general is saying, 'If I get Hillary off the hook, I'm going have four more years or eight more years, but if she loses I'm out of a job.'

"It's a bribe," Trump charged. "It's a disgrace. It's a disgrace."

The New York Times reported Monday that Clinton was weighing whether to extend Lynch's term should she win the presidency, primarily in hopes of appeasing the Democratic Party's liberal wing by naming more women to top positions.

"She is laughing at the stupidity of our system," Trump said. "She is laughing — and so is her husband, Bill.

"Laughing at what's going on."
