President Donald Trump has challenged Hillary Clinton to join the 2020 U.S. presidential race on condition that she gives an explanation regarding the notorious email scandal.
Mocking her in a tweet moments ago, Trump wrote, ‘I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena!’.
The emails Trump refers to in his tweet are related to an FBI investigation into Clinton who used a private server and email accounts during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. Clinton was accused of culling out some 30,000 of her personal emails without following the correct National Archives procedures.
The Clinton email saga, also known as email-gate, has followed Clinton for many years. In 2017, materials handed over to Judicial Watch by the State Department revealed examples of what appeared to be `pay-to-play’ politics.
It was alleged that Clinton would receive generous donations to the Clinton Foundation from private and state donors in exchange for government appointments, policy positions, and government contracts. Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was President Trump’s principal rival in the 2016 presidential election. She lost to Trump despite winning the majority of the popular vote.
