“The FBI agents say their investigation is likely to yield an indictment,” Trump said, “However, the report also showed that the political leadership at the Department of Justice is trying as hard as it can to protect their angel, Hillary Clinton.”
“She’s likely to be under investigation for a long time, concluding with a criminal trial. Unprecedented,” he said later.
Trump appeared to be referring to a Wednesday night report from Fox News’ Brett Baier, who said that FBI sources told him the investigation “will continue to likely an indictment.”
On Friday morning, though, Baier corrected that report and apologized, saying that the claims that an indictment was “likely” were a "mistake."
Trump also citied a CBS report published Thursday night which claimed some newly discovered emails are not duplicates of emails found on Clinton’s private server.
"She said she gave them all in, right?" he asked. "Well, when we saw 650,000 we figured, I guess there has to be some surprises."
“Hillary Clinton lied to Congress under oath. She didn't send classified information on her illegal server, she said, meaning she may now face major problems for perjury,” Trump riffed after referencing the report.
That same report, though, said that “it remains to be seen” if the emails were significant to the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s private email server.
