Donald Trump's campaign speech in the battleground state of Ohio on Monday was billed as another presentation on law and order, but it wound up being a referendum on Hillary Clinton's "criminality," as he called for an independent investigation of the Democratic nominee's actions due to his belief that the Justice Department has a Clinton bias.
"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 new crimes, which happen all the time," Trump told a rally in Akron, Ohio.
". . . The Justice Department is required to appoint an independent special prosecutor because it has proven itself to be, really, sadly, a political arm of the White House. Nobody has ever seen anything like this before. The DOJ has acted very unethically, particularly the Attorney General's private lengthy, 39-minute meeting in the back of an airplane before the Department's decision not to prosecute her for crimes that would have been prosecuted against any other citizen in our country.
"If the Justice Department fails to do so, it will make it even clearer that a second of four primary constitutional departments have been corrupted. It's as simple as that."
Trump's rallies have broken out into chants of "Lock her up" in recent weeks and this one did the same after he stated: "As the evidence has become public over the last several months, I have become increasingly shocked by the vast scope of Hillary Clinton's criminality."

"Every insider, getting rich off of our broken system, is throwing money at Hillary Clinton," Trump said. "It's the powerful protecting the powerful. Insiders fighting for insiders.
"I am fighting for you."
