ATKINSON – Donald Trump predicts that if Hillary Clinton wins next week’s presidential election, “she’s likely to be under investigation for a long time, concluding in a criminal trial.”
The Republican presidential nominee made his prediction in a speech Friday to nearly 1,000 supporters at an early afternoon rally at the Atkinson Country Club.
Trump repeatedly attacked the Democratic nominee over the long running controversy centering on her use of a private email address and server during her years as secretary of state during President Barack Obama’s first term.
“What a mess! How can Hillary manage this country when she can’t even manage her e-mails?” Trump asked the crowd. “All she had to do was follow the rules. She’ll be under investigation for years.”
“America deserves a government that can get to work on day one and get it done,” Trump added.
This summer the FBI recommended against moving forward with the Justice Department’s investigation into whether Clinton mishandled classified information by using a private email and server. But one week ago FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress announcing that the agency had re-opened the investigation and was looking into possible Clinton emails discovered in an unrelated case.
The news gave Trump a boost in the polls, and he’s now all tied up with Clinton in the race for New Hampshire’s crucial four electoral votes.
At the beginning of his speech, Trump predicted that “in the four days we’re going to win the great state of New Hampshire and we’ll take back the White House.”
Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, returns to the Granite State on Sunday, headlining an event in Windham. And Trump returns for the second time in four days on Monday, for an Election Eve rally at the SNHU arena in downtown Manchester.
Friday afternoon New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a top Trump surrogate who’s heading up the GOP nominee’s transition team, cancelled a Saturday swing through New Hampshire. The announcement came hours after two of Christie former top aides were convicted in a plot to close some of Fort Lee, New Jersey’s access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in order to punish the city’s mayor, who refused to back Garden State governor in his 2013 re-election.
The two aides who were found guilty, Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni, both testified that Christie know of the plot. The governor has repeatedly said for years that he wasn’t aware of the plans.
While Trump was in Atkinson, Clinton’s daughter Chelsea was also in New Hampshire, campaigning for her mother.
The Democratic nominee, campaigning in Detroit, took aim at Trump, saying “if Donald wins the election, we’d have a president who wants to ban every Muslim in the world from coming to visit the United States. We are a country founded on religious freedom. That runs contrary to our Constitution. We would have a president who has said repeatedly that he thinks the lives of black people are all about crime and poverty and despair.”
Saturday a rock star among the left wing of the Democratic party, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, campaigns in New Hampshire for Clinton. The Democratic nominee returns to the state on Sunday, while President Barack Obama visits the state on Monday, his first trip to New Hampshire this election cycle.
