Donald Trump attacked FBI Director James Comey's decision Tuesday to not prosecute Hillary Clinton for her private email use and declared that because her server was most likely hacked by foreign governments "our adversaries almost certainly have a blackmail file on Hillary Clinton, and this fact alone disqualifies her from service."
"The FBI director laid out today a detailed case of how Hillary Clinton compromised the safety of the American people by storing highly classified information on a private email server with no security," the presumptive Republican nominee said in a statement
"It has also been revealed that Hillary Clinton lied when she said that she did not send classified information," he added. "The FBI director confirmed that over 100 emails were deemed classified at the time they were sent, including emails classified as top secret.
"On top of it all, Hillary Clinton's lawyers wiped the servers clean to delete another 30,000 emails, hiding her corrupt dealings from investigators. She used the State Department for her personal gain, trading favors for cash, and tried to conceal the records.
"Also, she didn't want people to know the details about her botched decisions in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Egypt that destabilized the Middle East," Trump said.
He added that "because of our rigged system that holds the American people to one standard and people like Hillary Clinton to another, it does not look like she will be facing the criminal charges that she deserves.
"Bill Clinton didn't accidentally run into the attorney general on the airport tarmac last week in Phoenix," Trump continued, referring to the June 27 meeting with Loretta Lynch
aboard her private plane at Sky Harbor International Airport.
"Hillary Clinton didn't accidentally sneak into the FBI during one of the country's biggest holiday weekends to testify on her illegal activities, something that wouldn't be afforded to others under investigation (and on a Saturday, of all days)."
Clinton was grilled by the FBI on Saturday
for three and a half hours at the agency's headquarters in Washington.
"It was no accident that charges were not recommended against Hillary the exact same day as President Obama campaigns with her for the first time," Trump added, noting their appearance together Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C.
"Folks — the system is rigged," the developer said. "The normal punishment, in this case, would include losing authority to handle classified information — and that too disqualifies Hillary Clinton from being president.
"The final jury will be the American people," Trump concluded, "and they will issue the verdict on her corruption, incompetence, and bad judgment on Nov. 8."
