Secretary of State Mike Pompeo dropped quite a bombshell on Friday afternoon about Hillary Clinton.
During an interview on Fox News, Pompeo told host Dana Perino that the State Department was working as fast as it could to release Clinton’s missing emails after President Donald Trump lashed his top diplomat for not making them public.
Pompeo said some of his predecessor’s correspondence could also be made public before the presidential election.
“We’re going to get there. We’re going to get this information out so the American people can see it,” Pompeo said while criticizing Clinton for using a private email server while she was secretary of state in the Obama administration.
“We’re doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election,” he went on.
In an interview with Fox Business on Thursday morning, Trump rebuked Pompeo and Attorney General Bill Barr over the fact that Clinton had not faced consequences for both her use of a private email server and involvement in the origins of the 2016 investigation into his campaign’s ties with Russia.
“Actually I’m not happy with him for that reason,” he added.
Clinton deleted more than 30,000 emails from her private server after she was asked to turn them over to investigators, claiming they were personal matters.
Pompeo on Friday told Fox News anchor Dana Perino that the release would be done in a way that didn’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, 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 went on.
