Donald Trump attacks Hillary Clinton email scandal as being “worse than Watergate” in a speech in Clive, Iowa. 

Trump references Hillary Clinton’s IT staff pleading the Fifth Amendment in front of the House Oversight Committee this morning, saying: “Now the people who destroyed the emails are all pleading the fifth amendment in front of Congress today… Anyone watching today’s hearing in Congress knows that Hillary Clinton’s actions are far more corrupt than we even imagined. This happened today.”

“This is a far bigger scandal than Watergate ever was, but with Watergate we had justice, we had the Justice Department that went after the people. We’ve never, ever seen anything like this,” Trump added.

DONALD TRUMP:

Her comments displayed the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led her to violate federal law as Secretary of State, hide and delete her emails, –think 33,000 emails, and that is just one batch. That is a lot of wedding talk! To put classified information in the reach of our enemies, lie to Congress, and sell government favors and access through the Clinton Foundation.

It’s this attitude of arrogance that explains why Hillary Clinton made 13 phones disappear – including with a hammer – so the FBI couldn’t see them, and why she bleached her emails after a congressional subpoena. After the subpoena came — this isn’t before. That is after the subpoena came. Now the people who destroyed the emails are all pleading the fifth amendment in front of Congress today. Have you seen what is going on in front of Congress? Fifth Amendment. Horrible. And will anything happen? That’s what we’ll find out.

Anyone watching today’s hearing in Congress knows that Hillary Clinton’s actions are far more corrupt than we even imagined. This happened today.

This is a far bigger scandal than Watergate ever was, but with Watergate we had justice, we had the Justice Department that went after the people. We’ve never, ever seen anything like this.

This is a scandal that threatens national security and that involves a multimillion dollar pay-for-play scheme between the Secretary of State and her Foundation.

Whether it’s her emails, her disasters in Iraq, Libya and Syria, or her failures on the economy, of which is has been disasterous, Hillary Clinton lacks the judgement, temperament and moral character to lead this country. She does, you know it, everybody knows it.

In the words of a secret service agent posted outside her office: “she simply lacks the integrity and the temperament to serve in the office…from the bottom of my soul, I know this to be true.”

The policies of Hillary Clinton have produced death and destruction overseas, and produced only failing schools, rising crime, job loss, shrinking incomes, and tragic poverty at home.
