On Tuesday it was announced that Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich would attend a rally together as the GOP candidate for President began testing the waters with his possible running mate. However, this wasn’t the only news the two GOP leaders were making, as both men made appearances earlier this week to talk about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the FBI case against her.
At a rally in North Carolina Donald Trump could be heard openly wondering what kind of bribe Bill Clinton may have offered Loretta Lynch during their impromptu meeting aboard Lynch’s plane. To be fair, it’s not much of a stretch to wonder if Clinton had tried to bribe the Attorney General, because his wife did something similar on national Television.
“I’m not casting aspersions on anybody other than Hillary, of course, but she may consider the attorney general who is ruling on her case now. Now they’re ruling on the case to continue forward as attorney general. Now how do you make that statement when they are going to rule because remember what happened, the FBI makes their recommendation and then still, it’s up to the attorney general’s office.
So Hillary said today –at least according to what I saw on television, which you can’t always believe– I found it hard to believe she’d said this, but she said today that she may consider the attorney general to go forward. That’s like a bribe, isn’t it? Isn’t it sort of a bribe?“
Meanwhile, Gingrich appeared on AM 970 in New York City where he ripped Clinton’s character, integrity, and honesty.
“If you think that it is okay to have a corrupt, dishonest government in Washington, than Hillary Clinton is the perfect candidate. She is part of the establishment, she gets it, she understands how to lie about virtually everything…
On the other hand. If you think we need to change things, that we can’t keep doing the same old stuff. We can’t have bad deals in trade, we can’t have a Secretary of State who has 2,300 emails with secrets out on the open internet, we can’t weaken our military more and more every year, if you believe in changing America back to prosperity, jobs, creativity, and dynamics, than Trump is the only candidate in this race who makes any sense at all.”
Ouch. That had to hurt.
