Donald Trump commented on “shocking new revelations” about his opponent Hillary Clinton during his campaign rally Monday afternoon in St. Augustine, Florida.

Trump, referencing a Wall Street Journal report, said the “shocking new revelations” were “about how the Clinton campaign has corrupted our government.”

The Wall Street Journal report revealed that Clinton ally Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe gave material support and hundreds of thousands of dollars to the wife of the FBI official that was investigating Clinton’s private email server. The FBI official’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, was running for state senate in Virginia.

“It was just learned that one of the closest people to Hillary Clinton with long standing ties to her husband and herself gave more than $675,000 to the campaign of the spouse of the top FBI official who helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s illegal email server,” Trump told the crowd, which groaned and booed in reaction. “So, the man that was investigating her from the FBI, his wife runs for office, and they give her more than 675,000 to run.”

“It’s absolutely disgraceful. It’s absolutely terrible,” Trump added. “And it’s unbelievable how Hillary Clinton got away with the email lie, the email scam, the email corruption, but now at least we have a pretty good idea.”

“Hillary knew this money was being paid and she has to be held accountable for this,” the Republican nominee alleged. “Because she knew that money — $675,000 plus— was being paid, so how is she continued to be allowed to continue to run for president?”

“The system is corrupt,” he blasted. “The system is rigged.”

Trump also referenced old emails discovered through WikiLeaks of Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta, suggesting the emails reveal that the polls are rigged.

“WikiLeaks also shows how John Podesta rigged the polls by oversampling Democrats — a voter suppression technique,” Trump alleged. “They’re polling Democrats…the system is corrupt and it’s rigged and it’s broken and we’re going to change it.”

Trump campaigned throughout Florida on Monday morning and is holding an evening campaign rally in Tampa.
