WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement in response to the State Department’s blatant attempt to delay further Clinton email releases until after the votes are counted in the key early nominating states:
“It’s clear that the State Department’s delay is all about ensuring any further damaging developments in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal are revealed only after the votes are counted in the early nominating states. The American people should be outraged at the Obama Administration’s gamesmanship to protect someone who recklessly exposed classified information on more than 1,300 occasions, including highly sensitive Top Secret intelligence.
“A ruling in favor of this blatant attempt to shield Hillary Clinton from accountability would further erode trust in our political system. Hillary Clinton has already violated the public trust by putting our national security at risk in order to skirt transparency laws. Let’s hope her friends at the State Department aren’t allowed to continue doing the same.”
