Trump, Pompeo hope to release Hillary Clinton emails the president has been ranting about for years
President Donald Trump is fighting Hillary Clinton again to gain a foothold against Joe Biden. This time he brings his dutiful foreign minister to the stage.
Mike Pompeo told the president's supporters at Fox News that he was working to get former Secretary of State Clinton's emails to the public.
"We have the e-mails, we bring them out," said Pompeo during a Friday appearance on the right cable channel. "We're going to get all of this information out for the American people to see."
Pompeo's appearance came the day after the president complained to Fox Business that his loyal agent was "unable" to get the controversial correspondence from the State Department, which Trump said has copies.
"Mike Pompeo couldn't get them out, which is actually very sad," said Trump on Thursday. He added that he was "not happy" with the former CIA director for this reason.
Pompeo said he is cautious about exposing confidentiality issues in these State Department emails but expects to show something before election day.
It's unclear what Trump is thinking in these emails, some of which may have passed through Clinton's private servers while serving in the Obama administration. Pompeo has not discussed any details. Investigations into the matter found that Clinton had not committed willful misconduct.
The president also railed at Clinton, his rival in the 2016 election, during an uninhibited afternoon interview with talk show host, Rush Limbaugh.
“She deleted 33,000 emails. For that she should be in jail, "said Trump. "I don't care if they are ... very sensitive emails."
The couple put forward a number of conspiracy theories, including largely unsubstantiated allegations made by the president about election fraud, immigrants and alleged espionage against his presidential campaign by the previous administration.
Trump also claimed he stopped completing a COVID-19 treatment program on steroids and dropped the F-bomb while raging over Iran.
Trump's obsession with Clinton's emails caught the attention of Special Counsel Robert Mueller after the president televised Russian activists meddling in the US election to find these deleted letters. Mueller noted that Trump was not directly involved in the Russian's attempts to hack US servers, although his campaign would likely benefit from such efforts, which are believed to have been led by Vladimir Putin. Putin denied involvement in hacking other D.N.C. Server and Trump said he had no reason not to believe him, despite statements to the contrary by U.S. intelligence officials.
