POTUS says Hillary would be going to trial if it were not for Comey
Steve Watson | Infowars.com – APRIL 12, 2017
Speaking during an interview aired Wednesday morning, President Trump declared that Hillary Clinton would definitely be facing a jury in court had it not been for the head of the FBI “saving her life”.
In the interview with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, Trump was adamant that Clinton would be facing charges related to her leaked emails, had FBI director Jim Comey not been “very, very good” to her.
“Don’t forget when Jim Comey came out, he saved Hillary Clinton,” Trump said, adding that If he hadn’t “she would be going to trial.”
“People don’t realize that. He saved her life. I call it ‘Comey 1.’ And I joke about it a little bit.” Trump added.
“When he was reading those charges, she was guilty of every charge. And then he said she was essentially OK.” the President further explained.
When asked if he would still push for appointing a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton in the future, Trump avoided the question, saying “I don’t want to talk about that, I want to talk about positive.”
Trump did, however, say that it is not too late to ask Comey to step down as FBI head.
“No it’s not too late,” Trump said. “But you know, I have confidence in him. We’ll see what happens. It’s going to be interesting.”
When asked why he didn’t request that Comey quit, Trump told Bartiromo: “I want to give everybody a good fair chance.”
Elsewhere during the interview, Trump suggested that no one believes that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s claim that her unmasking of his aides wasn’t for political gain.
“It’s such a big story and I’m sure it will continue forward,” Trump said, adding that “what they did is horrible.”
The President said it is “obvious” why Obama eased the rules on raw intelligence sharing days before leaving office, “when you look at Susan Rice and what’s going on.”
