Donald Trump doubled down on his promise to have a special prosecutor investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server if elected president during his campaign rally Wednesday afternoon in Ocala, Florida.

“Our country has never been so low,” Trump stated during the event with thousands of supporters. “We have to investigate the investigation.”

Trump originally said he would have a special investigator look into Clinton during the second presidential debate on Sunday night in St. Louis, Missouri:

I think the one that you should really be apologizing for, the thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 emails that you deleted and that you acid washed and the two boxes of emails and other things last week that were taken from an office and are now missing. And I tell you what, I didn’t think I would say this, but I’m going to and I hate to say it. But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. Because there has never been so many lies, so much deception.

Pollster Frank Luntz found that the public responded well to Trump’s special prosecutor line during the debate.

Trump continued his criticism of his opponent on her email scandal during the campaign rally.

“She lied to Congress. She lied to the FBI,” Trump alleged of Clinton. “This is crime at the highest level. She shouldn’t be allowed to run for president.”

“I’m so embarrassed by what’s taken place,” he added. “Our politicians — do they make a deal where everybody protects each other in Washington?”

“I really believe it,” the Republican nominee stated, taking a jab at both parties in Congress.
