Trump Slams Hillary Clinton: 'She Was Guilty on Every Charge'

President Donald Trump Wednesday morning said Hillary Clinton "was guilty of every charge" FBI Director Jim Comey read past year when he publicly announced he would not recommend prosecution of the former Secretary of State.

To say that Comey was "very, very good to Hillary Clinton" is hopelessly ridiculous and completely at odds with the real-world events of 2016.

The question came up after Trump discussed the obstructions he's facing filling the hundreds of federal jobs in his administration that remain open, and after Bartiromo asked why Comey, an appointee of former President Barack Obama, was still in place. People don't realize that. "I call it 'Comey I.' And I joke about it a little bit".

In an interview with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo, Trump said "it's not too late" to fire Comey, adding that while he has "confidence" in the director, "we'll see what happens". "When you look at Susan Rice and what's going on and so many people coming up to me and apologizing, now they're saying, 'You know, you were right when you said that.' Perhaps I didn't know how right I was because nobody knew the extent of it".

At this point, it appears as though Comey is safe, but being kept on a short leash. "When [Comey] was reading those charges, she was guilty of every charge, and then he said she was essentially OK". Bartiromo asked if Trump had been referring to Rice in his infamous, and unsubstantiated, tweet accusing the former President of wiretapping Trump Tower.

"I'm going to let you figure that one out".

Trump answered that Clinton would be going to "trial" right now if it weren't for Comey's decision.

According to CNN, Clinton said Trump's condemnation is in direct contrast to his concern for these children. "I wish they'd explain better the obstructionist nature", he said.

Trump has previously backed away from campaign threats to appoint a special prosecutor to further investigate Clinton's use of a private email server. Bartiromo said Rice has said her actions were not politically motivated.

"Nobody believes that", said Trump. "What they did is disgusting".
