Washington, Oct 29: Republican Party presidential nominee Dold Trump celebrated the FBI’s decision to re-open its investigation into Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server, saying “perhaps filly justice will be done”. While the real-estate mogul was making those remarks at a campaign event in Manchester, New Hampshire, the crowd chanted “lock her up!”, Efe news reported. “I have great respect for the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and (the Justice Department) are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake they made,” Trump said, referring to the bureau’s decision in July not to recommend that the department pursue crimil charges against Clinton for her use of the private server for official business.
“They are reopening the case into her crimil and illegal conduct that threatens the security of the US,” Trump told the crowd at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Manchester.
The FBI’s decision to re-open the case, communicated in a letter Friday to the chairmen of several congressiol committees, comes just 11 days before the November 8 presidential election. The e-mail controversy erupted in 2015 when it was reported that Clinton had used a private e-mail account for official business throughout her 2009-2013 tenure as Secretary of State. (IANS)
