WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump made no mention of FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that a review of new Hillary Clinton emails did not change the FBI’s recommendation that she should not face charges.
But Trump, holding a rally in Minnesota on Sunday, did make his usual claim that Clinton “will be under investigation for a long, long time, likely concluding in a criminal trial.”
Trump went on to say that Clinton is “protected by a rigged system. She shouldn’t even be allowed to run for president.”
Comey’s letter was released minutes before Trump took the stage in Minneapolis. He has three more rallies slated for Sunday.
Comey’s initial announcement last month that the FBI was reviewing the emails was a political gift to Trump, who claims that a cloud of scandal would follow her into the White House.
