Trump Maintains Hillary Was 'Guilty Of Every Charge'

President Trump, who frequently claimed during last year’s White House race that Hillary Clinton should face prosecution, apparently has not changed his mind about his former opponent.

In a Fox Business Network interview on Wednesday, Trump declared that Clinton “was guilty of every charge” for which she was investigated by the FBI. He argued that the bureau’s director, James Comey, “saved her life” by deciding last summer to not recommend criminal charges for Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Comey told Congress that Clinton had been “extremely careless” with her handling of classified government information, but claimed there was insufficient evidence to prosecute her.

“When he was reading those charges, she was guilty of every charge,” Trump told FBN host Maria Bartiromo, referring to a news conference last year when Comey listed the offenses Clinton may have committed. “When he was reading those charges, she was guilty of every charge, and then he said she was essentially OK.”

The issue arose when Bartiromo asked why Comey, an Obama administration appointee, is still running the bureau. The president responded: “Director Comey was very, very good to Hillary Clinton, that I can tell you. If he weren’t, she would be right now going to trial.”

Trump also continued to claim that Obama “wiretapped” his home during the campaign. He blasted his predecessor’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, for admitting that she requested the identities of some Trump associates who showed up in intelligence reports because agents “incidentally” surveilled them while investigating others. Rice said she never “unmasked” anyone or leaked any information. “Nobody believes that, even the people that try to protect her in the news media,” Trump said. “It is such a big story and I’m sure it will continue forward. What they did is horrible.”

In addition, the president acknowledged that he is having a hard time filling hundreds of government jobs that have been open since he took office.
