Trump: No One Takes All The Risks Hillary Clinton Did Unless They Are Covering Up "Massive Crimes"

|

Donald Trump at a campaign rally Tuesday night in Greenville, N.C. said Hillary Clinton's handling of classified intelligence and how she destroyed her private e-mail server is worse than Watergate. Trump called actions like "using hammers to destroy phones" and bleaching servers is something out of "a third-world country."

"Who uses 13 different phones in 4 years?" Trump asked. "Who? The only people who use that many phones are usually involved in very, very, and I mean very shady activity. And now she's running for president."

Trump said Clinton's use of "I can't remember" when probed by the FBI on the private server is a sign she can't be president.

"Hillary and her top aides told the FBI and others in related lawsuits that they couldn’t recall or can't remember anything. By the way, if she really can't remember, she can't be president. She doesn't remember anything. She doesn't even remember whether or not she was instructed how to use e-mails," he said.

Trump also wondered where the guy who set up the server who plead the Fifth is at.

"Remember him?" Trump said to the crowd in Greenville. "He plead the Fifth Amendment. What are we doing to do with this guy? What happened? He pleaded the Fifth. Where is he? Where is he? Is he living? Where is he? He pleaded the Fifth and that was the end. We've never heard about him again. Boy, I'll tell you."

"No one takes all the risks Hillary Clinton took unless they are trying to cover up massive, massive crimes," Trump declared.

From Tuesday night's campaign rally:

DONALD TRUMP: It’s also clear from the FBI report that Hillary Clinton and her top aides knowingly destroyed evidence and covered-up their actions. After her private server was revealed last March, her staff deleted all the emails and wiped it clean using a software designed to prevent any recovery. She 'bleached' her e-mails and nobody even has heard about it before because it is a very expensive process. Why would anybody that is getting rid of e-mails that had to do with the wedding and yoga. Yoga and the wedding. I figure 5 for the wedding and 2 for the yoga, so that's 7. Why do you bleach the emails? Nobody even heard of it before. Very expensive. Just ask yourself.

Then they used hammers to destroy phones so they couldn’t be turned -- and by the way, who uses 13 different phones in 4 years? Who? The only people who use that many phones are usually involved in very, very, and I mean very shady activity. And now she's running for president.

People who have nothing to hide don’t smash phones with hammers. They don't. People who have nothing to hide don’t bleach -- nobody has ever heard of it -- their emails, or destroy evidence to keep it from being publicly archived as required under federal law. And she got rid of these e-mails after Congress, not before, after Congress requested them. Think of that. Can you imagine if I or somebody else did something like that? Can you imagine if Rudy Giuliani did that? Oh, Rudy, you'd be in such trouble. Poor Rudy, right? It's unbelievable.

In history, there has never been a situation like is going on with justice and Hillary Clinton. There has never been a situation like is going on with the media protecting Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton failed to turn over thousands of documents, then tried to shield her criminal conduct by having her chief-of-staff declare herself to be Hillary Clinton’s private attorney.

Hillary and her top aides told the FBI and others in related lawsuits that they couldn’t recall or can't remember anything. By the way, if she really can't remember, she can't be president. She doesn't remember anything. She doesn't even remember whether or not she was instructed how to use e-mails.

Were you instructed on how to use classified [intel]? I can't remember.

But that's in addition to the guy who set up the server. Remember him? He plead the Fifth Amendment. What are we doing to do with this guy? What happened? He pleaded the Fifth. Where is he? Where is he? Is he living? Where is he? He pleaded the Fifth and that was the end. We've never heard about him again. Boy, I'll tell you.

This is like a third-world country, folks. This is really like Watergate, but worse because here our foreign enemies were in a position to hack our most sensitive national security secrets.

No one takes all the risks Hillary Clinton took unless they are trying to cover up massive, massive crimes.
