Speaking in Albany NY last night, frontrunner Donald Trump told a cheering crowd that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “guilty as hell” with regard to the ongoing investigation into her use of a private email server for transmitting classified information. “Everybody knows that she is guilty as hell…Everybody. Her whole life has been a big, fat, beautiful lie, it’s been a terrible, terrible, lie. Everything about her is a lie.”
His statements came after Clinton took Trump to task for his position on abortion. Clinton’s video ad also addressed Trump’s positions on border security and immigration, and national security.
While Clinton, who remains the frontrunner to be crowned as the Democratic Party’s nominee this summer in Philadelphia, has contended that the information she received and transmitted was not classified, the FBI’s investigation is still going forward. There have been indications that she will soon be questioned personally by FBI Director James Comey. In an interview with NBC recently, Clinton actually laughed off the prospect that she will be eventually handcuffed for her apparent violation of the law. “It’s a security review, it is a security review and there are lots of those that are conducted in our government all the time. And you don’t hear about most of them. You hear about this one because it does involve me, so that’s why it gets so much attention,” Clinton said.
