Donald Trump addressed the breaking news that the FBI is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal during his afternoon campaign rally in Lisbon, Maine on Friday, saying he respects the FBI for this move.
“The FBI, after discovering new emails, is reopening their investigation into Hillary Clinton,” Trump told the crowd, which responded with roaring cheers.
“I have great respect for the FBI for righting this wrong,” he added. “We hope all — all — justice will finally be served.”
“This is the biggest political scandal since Watergate and I’m sure it will be properly handled from this point forward,” the Republican nominee stated. “Now, getting back to things that don’t sound quite as exciting, but they’re so important.”
