Calls it a 'coup,' says Trump would be winning by 15 points without 1-sided press
WASHINGTON – Former House Speaker affirmed Donald Trump’s claims that the presidential election is being stolen by a one-sided media almost universally working shamelessly for his opponent, ignoring substantive Hillary Clinton scandals while hyping unsubstantiated charges against Trump.
“I think that without the unending one-sided assault of the news media, Trump would be beating Hillary by 15 points,” he told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week.” “I think when you look at WikiLeaks and you look at all the things she has said, when you look at the deals in Russia that Bill Clinton made, and that the Clinton Foundation – I mean, all this nonsense by [Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim] Kaine about Russia, it’s Clinton, Bill Clinton, who got a half a million dollar speech. It is the Clintons who got money for the Clinton Foundation from Russia. It is – it is [Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John] Podesta who was on a Russian company advisory board that was apparently funded by [Vladimir] Putin.
