New e-mails create controversy
As Hillary Clinton takes time off the campaign trail to prepare for the last presidential debate…Donald Trump has a new attack stemming from more e-mails released by the FBI.
(NBC News) – You will be hearing the words "quid pro quo" a lot in the next few days.
Donald Trump is not only claiming the election process is rigged, but that new e-mails prove corruption.
Donald Trump says newly released State Department emails show a scandal he calls worse than Watergate. "The FBI documents that show Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy made requests for altering classifications as part of a quid pro quo. In other words a deal. "This is felony corruption," said Donald Trump, (R) Presidential Nominee.
In one exchange with the FBI, the undersecretary asks to change the classified label on one of Hillary Clinton’s emails when she was Secretary of State.
The State Department would then reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden" – specifically, in Iraq.
The FBI and State Department deny any wrong doing. "No quid pro quo. No exchange here." State Dept. Deputy Spokesperson, Mark Toner.
As part of Trump’s latest push to sway voters
His wife Melania went on CNN.
Blaming Billy Bush for Trump’s lewd comments about women caught on an open mic. "And he was lead on. Like egg on from the host to say uh dirty and bad stuff," said Melania Trump, Donald Trump’s Wife.
Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders tried to reach out to Trump supporters playing off of his rigged election claims. "The system is rigged in favor of the wealthy and the powerful. Think about voting for Hillary Clinton on this issue alone," Senator Bernie Sanders, (I) Vermont.
Hillary Clinton has not commented on the latest email controversy. She is not scheduled to make a public appearance until the debate on Wednesday.
