Trump Calls For Independent Probe Of Clinton’s Emails

A special independent prosecutor should investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, Donald Trump declared Monday night.

The Hill reported that the Republican presidential nominee called the Department of Justice, which has declined to file charges against Clinton, a “political arm of the White House.” He told the crowd at a campaign event in Akron, Ohio: “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.”

Referring to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, Trump added: “Some former prosecutors have even suggested that the coordination between the pay-for-play State Department and the corrupt Clinton Foundation constitute a clear example of a RICO enterprise.”

According to the candidate, Justice Department officials behaved “very unethically” in accepting FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation to not indict Clinton. Comey acknowledged that her email practices were “extremely careless,” and that “hostile actors” may have obtained classified government information.

Trump slammed Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her “private, lengthy meeting with Bill Clinton shortly before the department’s decision not to prosecute (his wife) for crimes that would have been prosecuted against almost any other citizen.” The real-estate mogul said that if the Justice Department does not appoint a special independent prosecutor, “it will make it even clearer that a second of the four primary constitutional departments have been corrupted.”
