The Department of Justice “has to be ashamed” with the way it handled its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to handle classified information as secretary of state, Donald Trump said in a new interview aired Wednesday discussing his concerns about his opponent receiving classified briefings.
Asked specifically about public concerns regarding both him and Clinton receiving classified briefings, Trump remarked to Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt on Tuesday night in Milwaukee that he is “worried about [Clinton] getting it because of her email situation. She can’t keep anything private.”
“I think her email scandal is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. She deleted 33,000 emails which is a crime, what she did is a crime, and to think that you have subpoenas and you’re deleting emails, it’s unthinkable. And I think probably her single greatest achievement in her life will be getting out of that mess because — and I don’t think she’s really out of it. I can’t believe that she’s out of it, but Justice has to be ashamed. Justice has to be ashamed,” Trump said. “When you look at — when you look at the fact that she did so many things wrong. When you just look at the volume of — you know, I call her crooked Hillary — you look at the volume of things she did wrong, and for her to get away with that is, to me, I think it’s very hard to believe.”
Trump himself will receive his first classified briefing at FBI headquarters later Wednesday.
