Trump demands resignation of State Dept. undersecretary at the center of FBI firestorm about 'quid pro quo' proposal to bury Benghazi email
Donald Trump told a screaming crowd of supporters in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Monday night that electing him is the best way to end the 'corruption' exhibited in the Hillary Clinton investigative documents released by the FBI earlier in the day.
And he called for the ouster of Patrick Kennedy, the State Department undersecretary at the center of Monday's firestorm.
Calling Clinton-related corruption 'magnitudes worse than Watergate,' Trump castigated Kennedy for trying to persuade the bureau to declassify one of Hillary Clinton's emails related to the 2012 Benghazi, Libya terror attack.
'Kennedy illegally pressured the FBI to un-classify emails from Hillary's illegal server,' he said. 'That's a lot of illegality in that one statement!'
'In other words, the State Department was trying to cover up Hillary’s crimes of sending classified information on a server our enemies could easily access, by trying to reverse the classification,' Trump said.
