“Many people in our Country are asking what the “Justice” Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and “acid washed” 33,000 Emails? No justice!” he tweeted
Shortly after entering his guilty plea on Friday, Flynn acknowledged in a statement that he is cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Trump and his allies, including Flynn, have long suggested that Clinton was should have been punished in the wake of the FBI’s investigation into her use of a private email server, leading chants of “lock her up” on the campaign trail.
The FBI investigation of Clinton concluded last year, with the agency’s then-Director James Comey recommending against charges for the former secretary of state. He said at the time that Clinton had acted irresponsibly in her use of a private email server, but that her actions did not warrant charges.
In his first substantial remarks on Flynn’s guilty plea, Trump tweeted on Saturday that he had fired Flynn earlier this year, because he was aware that the former national security adviser had lied to Vice President Pence and the FBI about his contacts with Kislyak.
That tweet, however, was an apparent shift for Trump’s initial explanation of Flynn’s ouster in February, when he said that it was because he had misled Pence. He made no mention of Flynn’s false statements to the FBI at the time.
