Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for official State Department business compromised national security and possibly means a foreign government has blackmail files on her, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump said Wednesday.
In a scathing speech targeting the Democrat frontrunner’s numerous scandals, Trump pointed to Clinton’s dealings with oppressive foreign governments as one reason she is unqualified for the office, in addition to the fact that a private email server she had illegally set up was hacked.
“To cover-up her corrupt dealings, Hillary Clinton illegally stashed her State Department emails on a private server,” Trump said.
“Her server was easily hacked by foreign governments – perhaps even by her financial backers in Communist China – putting all of America in danger.
“Then there are the 33,000 emails she deleted.
“While we may not know what is in those deleted emails, our enemies probably do.
“So they probably now have a blackmail file over someone who wants to be President of the United States.”
“This fact alone disqualifies her from the presidency,” Trump said from Trump SoHo in New York City.
“We can’t hand over our government to someone whose deepest, darkest secrets may be in the hands of our enemies.”
