After a rather surprising statement was issued by FBI director James Comey that federal officials have decided not to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump had a few things to say during a rally in Charlotte Tuesday night.
"Did you see today, Hillary announced that she may consider the Attorney General who is ruling on a case now, they're ruling on a case, to continue forward as Attorney General. How do you make that statement when they are going to rule? Remember what happens, the FBI makes their recommendation and then still its up to the Attorney General's office."
"So Hillary said today, at least according to what I saw on television, which you can't always believe, I actually found it hard to believe she'd say this, but she today that we may consider the Attorney General to go forward. That's like a bribe isn't it, isn't that sort of a bribe? I think it's a bribe."
"It's a bribe! I mean the Attorney General is sitting there saying 'you know if I get Hillary off the hook, I'm gonna have four more years, or eight more years, but if she loses I'm out of a job'"
Trump didn't stop there, as he proceeded to remind the audience that Hillary has been in questionable situations before, bringing up Hillary's incredible prowess in commodity futures.
"It's a disgrace. She is laughing at the stupidity of our system, she is laughing and so is her husband Bill, laughing at what's going on. They've been there before between Whitewater and all of the others, look at her cattle futures. I mean she did better with Cattle proportionately than people that have been in the cattle business all their lives and have made millions. She did better than they did, and she never did it before I wonder how that happened. She's crooked Hillary folks."
And of course Trump wasn't going to forget the purely coincidental meeting Bill and Loretta Lynch had just a day prior to the Benghazi report being released, and not long before Comey announced the FBI's decision.
"So give the grandchildren two minutes, give the golf three and a half minutes. That's a long time to be sitting there twiddling your thumbs, what else are we going to talk about - let's talk about Hillary!"
It appears it is not just conspiracy theory-peddling blogs and presidential candidates that think it's possible, even the mainstream media is unable to ignore the farce any longer...
