Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had an interview on Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing,” where he announced that his agency was working around the clock and doing everything they could to release Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails to the public before the election on November 3rd.
“We’re going to get there. We’re going to get this information out so the American people can see it,” Pompeo said.
“We’re doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election,” he added.
In an interview with Fox Business on Thursday, Trump had rebuked both Pompeo and Attorney General Bill Barr over the fact that Clinton had not faced any consequences for her use of a private email server and how she was involved in the origins of the investigation on his 2016 presidential 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.”
Clinton had deleted more than 30,000 emails from her private email server after she was asked to turn them over to investigators. She claimed after that, that they were personal matters.
Pompeo had told Fox News anchor Dana Perino that they would release the emails in a way that wouldn’t threaten national security.
“I’ve been at this with President Trump for four years now, almost. I’ve never seen him do anything that would put any kind of asset or any kind of one of our officers in any harm’s way. He wouldn’t do that,” he said.
“We’ll get the information out that needs to get out and we’ll do it in a way that protects the intelligence sources that we need to protect,” he concluded.
