“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said his agency was working as fast as it could to release Hillary Clinton’s missing emails after President Trump lashed his top diplomat for not making them public.
In an interview on Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing,” the secretary said some of his predecessor’s correspondence could also be made public before the presidential election just 25 days away.
“We’re going to get there. We’re going to get this information out so the American people can see it,” Pompeo said while criticizing Clinton for using a private email server while she was secretary of state in the Obama administration.
“We’re doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election,” he went on.
In an hour-long interview with Fox Business on Thursday morning, Trump rebuked Pompeo and Attorney General Bill Barr over the fact that Clinton had not faced consequences for both her use of a private email server and involvement in the origins of the 2016 investigation into his campaign’s ties with Russia.
“They are in the State Department but Mike Pompeo has been unable to get them out, which is very sad,” Trump told anchor Maria Bartiromo.
“Actually I’m not happy with him for that reason,” he added.
Clinton deleted more than 30,000 emails from her private server after she was asked to turn them over to investigators, claiming they were personal matters.” (Read more: New York Post, 10/09/2020) (Archive)
