Donald Trump in Virginia Beach July 2016:

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is weak, ineffective, pandering, and, as proven by her recent email scandal, which was an embarrassment not only to her, but to the nation as a whole, she is either a liar or grossly incompetent...

Hillary Clinton went to great lengths to create a private email server and to bypass government security in order to keep her emails from being read by the public and by federal officials.

In other words, she was willing to risk our foreign enemies reading her emails as long as the voting American public could not.

Her conduct was willful, intentional, and unlawful – and her repeated false statements about her conduct prove that she was fully aware of
her guilt.

This was not just extreme carelessness with classified material – which is still totally disqualifying. This is calculated, deliberate, premeditated misconduct – followed by a cover-up that included false statements and lies to Congress, the media and the American people.

In fact, when the FBI interviewed her for only 3 hours during the 4th of July weekend, her interview was not recorded, and she was, amazingly, not even put under oath.

She carried out her dangerous email scheme at the same time as her bad judgement and enthusiasm for regime change was unleashing ISIS across the world.

Afterwards, as a further demonstration of guilt, Hillary Clinton erased more than thirty thousand emails as part of the cover-up. The fact that she got away with all of this could be her single most impressive accomplishment.

When thinking about her e-mail destruction, let’s not forget: many foreign and corporate entities, and other special interests, with business before Hillary Clinton’s State Department were making massive financial contributions. These contributions were made to both the Clinton Foundation and to the Clintons directly.

If elected, Hillary Clinton would become the first President of the United States who wouldn’t be able to pass a background check.

Just look at what the FBI Director said about her – her misconduct is a disgrace and embarrassment to our country.

Clearly, Hillary Clinton thinks she is above the law. Come November, the American people will show her that she is not.

The easiest way to understand Trump is to simply assume that all criticisms of others are projections of himself.

*And by the way, Comey said a bunch of idiotic things in that press conference, but he didn't say that.
