Hillary Clinton was floored yesterday when the FBI announced they were reopening their investigation into her use of a private email server. Now, the Republican National Committee has demanded that she be disqualified from the race.
“The FBI’s decision to reopen their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email server just eleven days before the election shows how serious this discovery must be,” RNC chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.
“This stunning development raises serious questions about what records may not have been turned over and why, and whether they show intent to violate the law,” he continued. “What’s indisputable is that Hillary Clinton jeopardized classified information on thousands of occasions in her reckless attempt to hide pay-to-play corruption at her State Department.”
“This alone should be disqualifying for anyone seeking the presidency, a job that is supposed to behin each morning with a top secret intelligence briefing,” Priebus concluded.
His statement came just hours after FBI director James Comey sent a letter to congress claiming that “recent developments” had prompted him to reopen the investigation.
“I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed on this yesterday, and I agree that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their important to our investigation,” he wrote.
Rumors are circulating that if Clinton is replaced, Joe Biden could take her spot. For months, the public has been speculating that Biden will be Clinton’s pick for Secretary of State if she gets elected.
What do you think of this new information? Is Clinton in serious trouble?
