Donald Trump called on Congress to act on perjury charges against Hillary Clinton during a campaign rally in Tampa, Florida on Wednesday afternoon.

“She sold favors. She sold access,” the Republican nominee stated of Clinton when she was secretary of state and the alleged pay-to-play scheme surrounding the Clinton Foundation. “It’s impossible to tell where the Clinton Foundation ends and the State Department begins.”

“She then lied about her crime to Congress,” he declared, before veering off the teleprompter and calling on Congress to act against Clinton’s alleged lies. “I don’t know if Congress is going to do anything about it, folks. I’m so sick of looking and seeing and I hear reports they don’t do anything. Congress ought to act. She lied to Congress 100 percent. Everybody agrees.”

“By the time they act, you’re going to say, ‘What was it?’ You won’t even remember what happened,” he added. ‘Let Congress act today! Let Congress act immediately!”
