Donald Trump took full advantage Tuesday night of the day’s document cascade released by Wikileaks, telling a Florida crowd that Hillary Clinton’s campaign is full of ‘so much corruption’ that his administration would be obligated to launch a new criminal probe of her actions during and after her tenure at the State Department.
‘We have to investigate Hillary Clinton, and we have to investigate the investigation!’ he said … ‘And she’s a bad person. Remember that. She’s a bad, bad person.’
More than half of Trump’s 51-minute speech … consisted of new material, courtesy of fresh Wikileaks revelations that came from a hack attack on her campaign chairman John Podesta’s private email account.
[He] accused her of secretly plotting to eliminate America’s national borders in favor of a single global government with control over trade and immigration.
‘Speaking in secret to a foreign bank, again just revealed, Hillary said “My dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders”,’ Trump said, quoting a digest of previously undisclosed transcripts of speeches she delivered on Wall Street for an average of $225,000 each.
‘Behind closed doors when she thought no one was listening, she pledged to dissolve the borders of the United States of America. No borders!’
‘If you don’t have borders, we don’t have a country,’ said a suddenly sullen Trump. …
‘Wikileaks has given us a window into the secret corridors of government power,’ he said, ‘where we see a former secretary of state announcing her desire to end forever the American independence that our founders gave to us and wanted us to have.’
‘American soldiers have fought and died to win and keep America’s freedom, and now Hillary Clinton wants to surrender that freedom to these open borders, open trade, and a world government.’ …
‘These Wikileaks emails confirm what those of us here today have known all along: Hillary Clinton is the vessel of a corrupt globalist establishment that’s raiding our country and surrendering the sovereignty of our nation,’ he said.
‘This criminal government cartel doesn’t recognize borders but believes in global governance, unlimited immigration and rule by corporations.’
His crowd chanted ‘Lock her up!’ as he pledged to appoint a special prosecutor to re-investigate her. …
‘Reporters who work for these outlets like The Washington Post or The New York Times may think of themselves as journalists,’ he said, ‘but they’re actually just cogs in a corporate political machine.’
‘The New York Times even gave Clinton veto power over her quotes in a major story,’ he marveled. ‘I’ve never heard of that! I’d like to have veto power when they misquote me all the time.’
Warming up the crowd for Trump, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani latched on to another Wikileaks document that recounted Clinton describing in a speech how it was helpful to embrace one position publicly while embracing the opposite view privately.
