NEW YORK – The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign responded Friday after reading through the FBI's released report summary of their conversation with Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in August concerning her email files.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus said,“The FBI’s summary of their interview with Hillary Clinton is a devastating indictment of her judgment, honesty and basic competency. Clinton’s answers either show she is completely incompetent or blatantly lied to the FBI or the public. Either way it’s clear that, through her own actions, she has disqualified herself from the presidency."
The Trump campaign responded, as well.
“Hillary Clinton is applying for a job that begins each day with a Top Secret intelligence briefing, and the notes from her FBI interview reinforce her tremendously bad judgment and dishonesty," Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said Friday.
Miller said Clinton’s secret email server was an end run around government transparency laws that wound up jeopardizing our national security and sensitive diplomatic efforts.
"On more than 2,000 occasions classified material was exposed on her private server, including highly sensitive Top Secret information and intelligence," Miller said in a statement. "All of this was done to conceal what we are once again seeing in the latest email productions from the State Department: rampant conflicts of interest and a pay-to-play culture that rewarded Clinton Foundation donors with access and favors."
Clinton’s reckless conduct and dishonest attempts to avoid accountability show she cannot be trusted with the presidency and its chief obligation as commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces, Miller said.
