Trump blasts Clinton over email scandal

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump slams his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton over her controversial use of a private email server instead of a government account while she was secretary of state.

OSKALOOSA, IOWA, UNITED STATES (JULY 25, 2015) (RESTRICTED POOL) – Republican presidential contender Donald Trump brought up his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s email scandal during remarks at a campaign stop in Oskaloosa, Iowa on Saturday (July 25).

“I don’t know how a person with that cloud over their head can actually be running for the office of president,” he told an auditorium packed with cheering supporters. “Look, If the prosecutors are honorable, if they’re fair, they’re just, sadly, bad things have to happen because what she did is very criminal and very serious, it’s too bad,” he added.

Clinton has been engulfed in a controversy over her use of a private email server instead of a government account while she was secretary of state.

At least four e-mails out of some 30,000 from that private account contained classified information, according to a government inspector’s letter to Congress this week.
