U.S. President-elect, Donald Trump has said Hillary Clinton’s camp has no right to complain about the FBI because she is ‘guilty as hell’.
This is coming as the Justice Department’s inspector general begins an inquiry into FBI Director James Comey’s conduct during the elections.
Clinton’s camp had blamed Comey’s handling of an investigation into Clinton’s private email server, and his late October release of a letter about the case, for her loss.
On Friday, Trump countered saying the FBI had been “VERY nice to her,” so she has no right to complain.
“What are Hillary Clinton’s people complaining about with respect to the F.B.I. Based on the information they had she should never have been allowed to run,’ Trump wrote.
Trump, who during the election said he would name a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton but has since backed off, said Clinton was ‘guilty as hell.’ He stated again that “they (FBI) were VERY nice to her.”
Addressing blaming Comey for Clinton’s loss, Trump explained that “she lost because she campaigned in the wrong states – no enthusiasm!’.
This is in reference to Clinton’s decision to virtually ignore midwest battlegrounds Michigan and Wiscon, which ultimately proved critical to his win.
