NEW YORK, July 3 (APP): US presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says that Hillary Clinton, his possible Democratic rival in the November national elections, will not be indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over her email case.
Trump said in a tweet that the “system is totally rigged.”
Approximately 30 minutes earlier, Trumped had tweeted that it would be ‘impossible’ for the FBI not to recommend charges against Clinton over her use of a private email setup while secretary of State.
“It is impossible for the FBI not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. What she did was wrong! What Bill did was stupid,” he said, referring to former US President Bill Clinton’s secret meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The meeting, which took place last week, spurred bipartisan questions, forcing Lynch to step back from the case.
On Friday, Lynch acknowledged that her meeting with Clinton’s husband was a mistake that had cast a shadow over the email investigation.
She also said that she fully expected to accept the FBI’s recommendations in the case.
Trump had reacted to the meeting by saying it smelled of a conspiracy. “I’m flabbergasted by it, I think it’s amazing, I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Clinton was interviewed for approximately three and a half hours at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., her campaign announced in a short statement.
She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion. Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview,” a spokesman said.
